Student Life Events Week of Sept 12th

On Monday, rock out with your favorite characters - handmade from some sort of rubber. That’s right, it’s time for “Tunes and Balloons” at the Creative Arts Center. Put your thinking cap on (don’t wear it out of the house, you look silly) and bring an idea of something you’d like to see made. Mr. Twister will magically transform it into your very own balloon animal or creature.

Ola! Como estas? It’s Martes!  Do you like Taco’s? We do too! Just say "por favor" and join us for “Taco Tuesday” at the College of Law. Bring an amigo or an enemigo and make them an amigo (this is getting confusing) and have a taco on us. Prisa, while supplies last!

On Wednesday, before things get “Strange,” stop by the Rec Center for a little 5 on 5. It’s time for some “Crossover Pickup Basketball.” We’ll have live, play-by-play announcers, a live DJ, prizes, and some delicious refreshments while you watch (not while you play, that gets too messy). 

Afterwards, do you like Strange Things? How about “Stranger Things?” We have them both, I think, at the Market at Health Sciences Center. We will have the Netflix mini-series ready to go unless something strange happens, you know, strange things are known to. 

Thursday, we have a very special event planned. Do you like cycling? Spin class? Exercising?  How about Woodburn Hall? Well, we’ve combined all of them! Please sign up at and join us for “Cycle Woodburn.” Three classes, with instructor, out on the lawn for a one-of-a-kind experience never experienced before.  Space is very limited so don’t delay.  Next, we know you’re tired and winded from that spin class (get in shape - too many hills around this place) so just hop on a bus or walk down the hill to the Personal Rapid Transit and head on over to the Market at the Health Sciences Center for day two of the “Stranger Things” marathon.

On Friday, track us down for “M & MMMMMM!” (Like YUM, only not a word.)  We’ll be on both the Evansdale and Downtown campuses, handing out that famous little chocolate piece of amazing, M & M’s.  Make sure you follow us @wvu_sle for information about the exact locations which will be changing! It’s probably going to be warm so we will finally put to rest the theory of whether they melt in your mouth, not in your hand. Your help in this research is deliciously requested.
