Five things to look forward to this week
To start of your Monday morning off right, here’s some on campus events you can attend this week: a chance to get a last-minute gift for your valentine, a treat for both students and local shelters in need and a chance to recycle and compete in RecycleMania’s kick-off.
Student Center Theater
5 to 7:30 p.m.
Council of Ethnic Oorganizations presents a documentary about two Korean adoptees, Anaïs and Sam, who learn about each other through social media. They believe they are twins who were separated at birth and raised on opposite sides of the world.
Get to follow Samantha and Anaïs’ journey into sisterhood, witnessing everything from their first meeting to their first trip back to Korea where their separation took place. Explore the meaning of family and connection through a story that would have been impossible just 10 years ago without the creation of YouTube and Facebook.
Tuesday: Get a waffle at the Pre-Vet Society bake sale
Student Center South
10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Pre-Vet Student Society will be having a bake sale with waffles, Thai tea, hot dogs and sweets. Ten percent of the bake sale proceeds will benefit a local shelter or organization in need. So go ahead, sip on a Thai tea and speak to your pet’s future vets.
