Plan ahead and take some time to enjoy the events happening this week.
The sun is finally out and the weather isn’t so terrible, so step outside this week and have some fun. With Springfest over, it might not seem like a lot is happening around campus, so here are a few events you might enjoy.
Starting with Mabee week, the John Mabee and Lottie Jane dorm halls will team up to host a week full of fun events leading up to an awesome formal dance. Beginning the week with Rep Your Hall on Monday, this event seems a little more tailored to only individuals who live in the dorm halls, but they encourage everyone to wear blue for Lottie and yellow for John. Also, Mabee week stickers will be available, so keep an eye out for those! Tuesday is hide and seek, join everyone at Dietler Commons (in front of the library) at 7 p.m. for a campus-wide game of hide and seek.
Wednesday is White Lies and Wine, so be sure to check your emails to RSVP for painting at Pinot’s Palette. This event will be from 6:30-9 p.m. The event itself is free if you register, and transportation will also be provided for those who need it. Thursday’s event Field Day will also be held at Dietler commons from 7-9 p.m., so head out and enjoy some field games with some free refreshing drinks.
Lastly, on Friday, Mabee Week will be ending with an enchanted forest-themed formal. Themed dress and formal dress are encouraged for this event at The Silo event center from 8 p.m.-12 a.m. There will be drink tickets for the first 100 students over 21 and mocktails for those under 21. There will also be free food and free transportation for anyone who needs a ride to this event.
Stepping away from Mabee Week, many other events are going on for you to enjoy. This Saturday John Mabee’s Toilet Bowl will be happening on the multipurpose field in front of Collins Fitness Center at 6 p.m. Enjoy playing some football or just watching and eating some free Rib Crib!
Another event happening this week that will not only be enjoyable but also empowering is Take Back The Night. This event is being hosted by our student organization SAVE where women and other marginalized groups will rally together and march around campus. This event gives individuals the power and freeing feeling of being able to walk at night without fear of being attacked, assaulted or hurt in any other way. Not only will this event allow everyone to do this, but it is also showing everyone that they are not alone. You can register for this event on SAVE’s Instagram, the march will begin at the Mayo clubhouse at 6:30 p.m. and the food will be catered at 7:20 p.m. Lindsey Cain, from the DEI office, will also be giving a talk at this event.
Lastly, for this week and until April 20th, students can visit The Alexander Hogue Gallery Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to see the Gussman Juried Student Exhibition for free. This exhibition holds various forms of artwork from photography, painting and even wire-made sculptures, all made by students here at TU. The reception for this event was last Thursday. Students were given awards based on various categories and even our very own sports editor and social media manager Callie Hummel was given an award for her photograph that is presented in the gallery. This is a great place to see the amazing work of the students in the School of Art, Design & Art History. The Alexander Hogue Gallery is located in Phillips Hall which sits between the library and Helmrich hall.
There are plenty of events happening on campus that encourage all students to have fun, join empowering movements and support fellow students and their hard work. Take some time this week and find the event(s) that work best with your schedule to enjoy some time as a student of TU.
