Comedy, Lovers’ Quarrels, and Norah Jones

There are so many events happening on campus this weekend, even I’m getting overwhelmed, and it’s my job to stay on top of this kind of stuff! Get ready for one of the most jam-packed, info-stuffed, and awesome Weekend Roundups you’ve ever read. Warning: this may or may not blow your mind. And with the weather so beautiful, it’s not like you’ll be getting that much studying done anyway, so you might as well get out there and experience it all.

Humor and Handbells

Swatties, it’s crunch time, which means that you’ve probably been at the same desk for hours, poring over notes or staring at that blinking cursor and waiting for the right words to come. You’re probably stressed and cold, and winter break seems so far from now. I cannot offer a remedy for the piles of work waiting to be done, but I can say that you probably need a breather.
