Need some stress relief? Check out these events!

Lindsey Franklyn here to tell you about some of the awesome events going on campus this week and part of the next! (That'd be November 7-13). For anyone stressing about exams coming up before Thanksgiving break, I suggest going to some of these events as a welcome stress-relief.

First up, there's a Taming of the Shrew going on throughout the week of mid-November at Neely Auditorium. The closest shows are Thursday or Friday for anyone interested in getting their Shakespeare-watching on. Tickets are free for undergraduates!

For more information about the play, check out VU Theatre's Anchor Link page.

Mayfield 2: Defying Gravity is currently in the middle of their Disabilities Awareness Week!

All events are leading up to their Friday fundraiser, Pie-A-Prof, where you can pie your professors in the face. From 3:00-6:00 p.m., on the Commons Lawn, fifteen professors (including Dean Wcislo, Maryclaire Manard, Provost McCarty, and some Tongue N' Cheek members) will be allowing students to pie them in the face!

Proceeds go to Chair Scholars, a great foundation that focuses their interests on providing college scholarships to disabled youth seeking an upper-level education. Tickets are being sold throughout this week, and Mayfield 2 will be accepting 5$ cash at the door.

American Red Cross at Vanderbilt is having a Chili's Give Back Night to Hurricane Sandy. The event's taking place on Thursday, November 8, and it will be lasting from 11:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. 10% of sales will be going to Red Cross, which is helping Hurricane Sandy victims. 

If you're interested in helping Hurricane Sandy victims, but you're stuck in Nashville, this is a great way to help out while taking a study break. 

Come for the BEST weekend of your life! University Catholic (formerly known as Vanderbilt Catholic) will be having its Awakening Retreat this weekend, November 9-November 11.

Think it's too late to sign up? Wrong. Want your life changed forever through a closer personal relationship with God? Sure you do. If you're interested, look for some comments at Univesity Catholic about how Awakening has changed (and touched) a lot of people's lives! I guarantee that you won't regret giving Awakening a chance.

On Friday, November 9, at 10:00 p.m., Mayfield 2: Defying Gravity will be watching Legally Blonde. With Disabilities Awareness Week coming to an end on Friday, everyone is invited to join Mayfield 2 later that evening to relax.

Come out to State of the Word 2012, which is being hosted by Vanderbilt Spoken Word! Tickets are 5$, and the event is taking place at Sarratt Cinema.

State of the World 2012 will be featuring some of the best up-and-coming young Southern poets. If you're interested in self-expression or listening to the voices of many diverse perspectives, this is the perfect event for you!

Two words: Be there.

Last but not least, next week is McGill's birthday week at their TV Lounge! All of these events are open to all undergraduates, regardless of whether or not they have plans to live in McGill. (The chocolate tasting event is definitely incentive to consider McGill, however, as well as the great people living there). 

History of Improv: November 12, 7:00-9:00 p.m. Come join the McGill community, Dr. Amelia Winger-Bearskin, and members of Tongue N' Cheek for an Improv Workshop!

40 Years of McGill History: November 13, 7:00 -9:00 p.m. Dean Mark Bandas, the original McGill Head Resident, will be coming to McGill to discuss the latest forty years of McGill history.  

Chocolate Tasting: November 15, 6:00 p.m. If you love chocolate, this is the event for you. On Thursday, come join Professor Fischer and McGill faculty to taste chocolate. Yearning for some coffee afterwards? At 8:00 p.m., McGill will also be having an Coffee House Open Mic Night. Anyone is free to join the stage.

Whew! That's a lot of events going on this week, as well as part of the next week. Hope some of these events will provide you guys some stress relief!
