Tuesday, November 14

Have you got something to say to our student government? Well they’re ready and willing to listen tonight at 9 p.m. in Hess Rec. ASUAF is hosting a feedback forum and I think that we live in such an interesting, stressful economic period at the university that hearing from students on issues important to them could help our student senators figure out where to focus their efforts. I’ve also been informed there should be pizza, which is more than enough temptation for me. – Kyrie Long / Editor-in-Chief

The Wood Center Food Pantry is trying to get 100 cans of food ready to donate by Nov. 17. If you’ve got extra cans laying around, or if you just want to help out, then drop off a few cans into the blue boxes located on the Wood Center Information Desk. All food will be donated, so help out a good cause this Wednesday. – Ben Ellis / Web Editor

I never seem to know what to do with my weekends, but given that this is the final Friday to see Winter Shorts at 7:30 p.m. enjoying some theater sounds like a pretty good option. If you want to support student productions and get your fill of one-act plays, stop by the Salisbury Lab Theater tonight. – Kyrie Long / Editor-in-Chief

Saturday, November 18

If you’re 18 or older and want to go see two visiting musicians, come down to the Wood Center Ballroom at 7:30 p.m. and see the pop-punk duo Diet Cig and the soft rock band IAN SWEET perform live. The concert is free for students with their Polar Express ID, and $10 for everyone else. – Ben Ellis / Web Editor

Want to get involved with your student government? The ASUAF meeting starts at 1:30 p.m in Wood Center Room C, as your representatives discuss matters important to the student body. – Ben Ellis / Web Editor

Thanksgiving is coming up and so it our long weekend which means, if your professors are like mine, you’ve got some work to do before that treasured time off. Maybe you’re having trouble with that final paper or maybe you’ve got a video project that just eats all of your time these days. Regardless of that quickly approach deadline you can always count on a place on campus: the library, the math and writing labs in Greuning, or even that nifty “email classmate” function on blackboard could prove useful right about now. – Kyrie Long / Editor-in-Chief
