I hope everyone had a great spring break and got to go do
something wild and crazy and fun! Some of my friends went to Europe, some went
skiing, I went to IKEA and got lost in the lighting department. But school has
started back up and the mourning period for Spring Break is now over. But
still, you need some fun stuff to do during your free time this quarter! So. It’s
that time again. I’m back to tell you all about events happening this quarter!
At the beginning of each quarter, I always hit up the websites
for DePaul Activities
Board (DAB) and for the Office of
Student Involvement . DAB releases their event calendar (around
which I plan my personal calendar). My favorite programs are usually the movie
premieres, where DAB hands out free tickets to the premiere of a popular upcoming movie at the movie theater a couple blocks away.
This quarter, the premiere is Captain America: Civil War on May 5th, which you know
everyone will be trying to get tickets to.
As you can see on the calendar, DAB hosts a wide variety of events. All I need to read is “Canines on Campus” for me to get
excited. I’m definitely hoping to go to An Evening with the Upright Citizens Brigade. If you don’t know what the Upright Citizens Brigade is, all you need
to know is that Amy Poehler was one of the original members. And, of course,
FEST, DePaul's annual end-of-the-year concert, is at the end of May, so keep your eyes open for more info about the
headliner and how to get tickets.
I also visit the Office of Student Involvement’s website to find out about DemonTix, DePaul’s discount ticket program, to see what events they’re selling
tickets for this quarter. While the sporting events all went on sale last month
and are probably sold out, you can always buy discount movie passes through
Office of Student Involvement. And this quarter, starting on May 5th,
you can buy discount tickets to go up to the SkyDeck in Willis Tower! It’s also
definitely worth keeping up with both DAB and the Office of Student Involvement
on Twitter or Facebook, since they sometimes announce impromptu giveaways
(that’s how I got tickets to Book of Mormon last year!).
I wrote about the Humanities Center events last quarter, but I
just want to review once again how amazing the events are. While DePaulywood
Squares (a take on Hollywood Squares, substituting professors for celebrities) most likely will have already come and gone by the time you read this
blog, there are still four other events hosted throughout the quarter, including
an event about
Moby-Dick that somehow
incorporates a screening of Star Trek II .
It is my personal mission to make it to Hungry Hungry Humanities: The Secret Life of Food, because you know I love my food.
Let me know what you’re planning on going to this quarter!
