I’m always grateful that I go to a school where there is so much to do. Not that I have a ton of free time, but I like to venture outside of my bedroom occasionally. When I do finally go outside, I want to make the most of my time. These are the events that I’m looking at this quarter:
January 23rd: Are Ya Smarter than Your Professor
February 22nd: The Scholar’s Improv 2: Academic Boogaloo
I love the DePaul Humanities Center
. This quarter, they’re reprising a popular improv event starring comedians and
professors. In between improv sketches performed by the comics, professors improvise a lecture as they present a PowerPoint that they’ve never seen before. Not only is it hilarious, but it gives you an appreciation for what professors actually do on the daily.
February 23rd: Polarpalooza
Every year, DAB hosts a big, free winter concert, just for DePaul students: Polarpalooza. Every winter, 600 students fill up Lincoln Hall
for a private concert with an up-and-coming music act. Tickets are free, but limited, so you have to be on your game if you want to snap up some tickets. DAB has a knack for picking acts that get way bigger right after performing at Polarpalooza (see: Fun.
, Walk the Moon
, Chance the Rapper
). Be sure to check out their website
at the beginning of February when they announce the performer!
February 25th: Blue Demon Dance
Every year, DAB also hosts a dance for DePaul students. It’s held somewhere fancy off-campus (last year it was held at Navy Pier!) and there’s food and music, and dancing, I assume. Keep an eye on DAB’s website
to see where the Blue Demon Dance will be held this year!
