Family Weekend's Here!

Hello there, lovely people of Vanderbilt and the world! You get another lovely upcoming weekend update from Nell, here! :)

I'm going to start the weekend a bit early, because I have something super important going on this Thursday evening. I am on the Holocaust Lecture Series Committee, and we have one of our events tomorrow night! Dr. Sheri Rosenberg will have a lecture at Flynn Auditorium at Vanderbilt Law School regarding the Responsibility to Protect project (R2P). She will discuss human rights and international laws around the world and this project's goals. She will be speaking from 7:00 to 9:30 pm, and we will have refreshments afterwards, such as cookies, brownies, seriously good stuff, yum!! I would love to see a lot of support from you lovely people tomorrow night.

Friday night, we will be showing a movie in our Mayfield, as always! I believe we determined that we'll be starting at 10 pm, and Linda has picked out Billy Elliot for this week! So if you have the chance, please stop by and join us!

Not only that, but please remember that Friday will be World Arthritis Day. Please remember that many people suffer from arthritis, and they deserve all the funding possible to live pain-free lives. One of my friends suffers with this, and she fights through pain every day, so please wear blue in honor of her and anyone else you may or may not know!

More importantly, however, this weekend will be full of family's visiting their students for Family Weekend! Vanderbilt will be sponsoring lots of fun events, such as Athenian Sing, a campus-wide talent show that will be at Langford Auditorium! It begins at 7:30 pm and ends at 8:45, and the tickets cost $8, but many campus organizations will be taking part. And of course, no Family Weekend is complete without a football game. This Saturday, Vanderbilt will be facing the Florida Gators at 5 pm! You'll definitely want to be there for the excitement in the atmosphere! I'll be there with the Spirit of Gold Marching Band, obviously. So get pumped! We'll be performing our annual patriotic show!

Finally, I will be singing Sunday morning at the 9:30 am Episcopal Service at Benton Chapel with the Vanderbilt University Concert Choir as well. So if you're up for some worship and beautiful songs in the morning, I hope to see you there too!

Honestly, there will be a ton going on this weekend, and you shouldn't miss out on it! Enjoy the rest of your week and weekend! :)
