There are plenty of us who could use a refresher course on the story of Passover. How many plagues were there again? Was one of them a Polar Vortex? Fear not, because tonight, Hillel’s Engagement Internship is hosting a viewing of “The Prince of Egypt,” everyone’s favorite should-be-Disney movie (it’s actually Dreamworks Animation… yes, your entire childhood was a lie.) “The Prince of Egypt” chronicles the life of Moses and the events that Passover commemorates, so if you missed the four questions at your family’s seder this week (or don’t know what that even means), go check out this event on the Main Green at 8:00 pm. The movie is top-notch, and features an Academy Award-winning soundtrack with original songs that will make you kvell. Bring a blanket, because the viewing includes a picnic with free chocolate-covered matzo — need I say more?
Aca-believe it or not, the 65th annual Jabberwocks’ Springvitational is tonight! What better way to celebrate the end of this apocalyptic winter than by listening to the finest crooning in the college aca-world (ok, I’ll stop…). This year’s Springvitational is poised to be one of the best ones yet, featuring everyone’s favorite ‘Wocks, the Darmouth Aires, and Pitch Slapped from Berklee College of Music. Just to get an idea of what to expect, the Aires were runners-up on Season 3 of NBC’s acapella competition show, the Sing-Off. Pitch Slapped boasts equally impressive credentials, holding the title of 2011 ICCA champions. Whether or not you are aca-inclined (last one, I promise), tonight’s show features incredibly talented singers from Brown and beyond, so definitely check it out.
Head to Salomon 101 for the show at 8pm. Tickets are $4 and totally worth it. If you’re not convinced, check out the videos below to hear the three groups bring the heat.
It feels like just yesterday that Ryan Lochte and his grill swam their way into our hearts, but, it’s time once again to rally around a new pantheon of athletic demigods. Sochi 2014 has been a long time coming, and, unless you have been living adrift on an ice flow, you have been hearing about the trials and tribulations leading up to this round of winter games.
There are a lot of us who don’t necessarily relate to the Olympics. The peak of our athletic careers consisted of four days in middle school when we were really excited about Wii Fit. We watch the Parade of Nations…for the fashion. The only thing we really remember about London 2012 is Tom Daley’s abs. Trust me; I get it. However, the Olympics are about more than just sports – they are about all sorts of things that Brown students love, like multiculturalism, community, and being really cold all the time. If you are someone who doesn’t like sports, here are a few ways that you can stay up-to-date and get into the Sochi spirit. Continue Reading
