It’s that time of year again: an abundance of all-nighters, countless cups of coffee and a flood of free Finals Week activities to help you finish well! “We’re here to help students relax, refuel and perform better,” said fifth year liberal studies major and Beach Pride Programs Assistant Jonathan Ibarra. “Students can do crafts or activities that help them clear their minds, de-stress and focus.”
You can grab some coffee and listen to your peers perform – or even get behind a mic yourself at this month’s Poet’s Lounge! Beach Pride Events hosts Poet’s Lounge throughout the year as a free open mic for students to share their poetry and spoken word art. All students are welcome to share any of their work or simply sit back and enjoy the show.
Although fall can be difficult to feel in Southern California, Beach Pride Events has plenty of opportunities for you to get into the fall spirit! First off, grab some friends and enjoy Spookville—a jam-packed, on-campus Halloween extravaganza! You can partake in classic Halloween activities like eyes-closed sensory games, painting pumpkins and mason jars, and enjoying a full-fledged pumpkin patch on campus.
If you’re looking for an incentive to get in the gym and pursue a healthy lifestyle, how about free tuition? Whether you’ve been checking out the Student Recreation & Wellness Center (SRWC) or not, Owen’s Condition for Tuition is giving students more of a reason to get into gear.
It’s finally here. Get ready to go wild and dance like nobody’s watching! ASI is presenting its annual Big Event on May 12, 2017—a concert featuring R&B and Hip-Hop acts Jeremih, Juicy J and Ella Mai! “This is always the biggest ASI event of the year!” exclaimed third year English major and Lead Program Assistant Kaila-Marie Hardaway.
Tonight the Richard and Karen Carpenter Performing Arts Center is getting hip-hopped out as students will get to spend “An Evening With Common!” ASI Beach Pride Events is continuing this popular series with Common, a prolific, Grammy Award-wining rapper, actor, poet and film producer from Chicago.
