Here's a glimpse of what's coming at you:
- Stick Fly--Lydia R. Diamond's comedy-drama, part of NCC's Black History Month celebration, will be performed Wednesday through Friday (Jan. 29-Feb. 2) in the campus theatre. A play about race and privilege, Stick Fly will leave you with much to think and talk about. It will also provide some laughs, as well as a chance to watch some of NCC's most talented student actors. P.S. Admission is free (provided you have a valid NCC student ID (a must!)).
- Welcome to Nassau Bash--Feeling at loose ends during club hour? Drop by the MPR (short for Multipurpose Room) in the College Center this Thursday, Jan. 30 at 11:30 a.m. for music, free food, giveaways, and a chance to make some new friends. Expect a big crowd--and a good time--so make sure you get there on time.
- Activities Fair--If you want to jump into campus life, the Activities Fair is the place to take the plunge. At club hour (11:30 a.m.) on Tuesday, Feb. 4, most of NCC's 70+ clubs will be gathering in the MPR to show the campus what they're all about. Food, music, giveaways, good talk--you'll find them all as you make your way around the MPR. Going to the Activities Fair doesn't obligate you to join a club, but I'm betting that after shopping around, you'll leave wanting to be a part of something.
- Poetry Hour--Is there a poet in you? Let that voice be heard at the upcoming Poetry Hour, scheduled for late February in the College Center. Haraya and the Programming Board, the student groups sponsoring the event, will be holding auditions during club hours (Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11:30 a.m.) in the College Center, Rm. 323, beginning January 28. Get your best poems ready and get to an audition. You can get more info about the auditions (and the event itself) by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can't do much about the weather (probably lots more frigid days ahead), but you can certainly take the chill off things by checking out what Nassau has to offer. So get out of the cold, come inside, and be a part of things in the weeks ahead.
