Paintball Trip Saturday, Dec. 10

Join the Paintball Club this weekend for a day of fun games for players of any age or experience level. Â
The vans will depart at 10AM from the quad and will probably return around 4:30PM.  Cost will be determined based on number of participants, but will be between $15 and $25, which can be paid ahead of time or that morning.
Students can bring their own equipment or rent gear.  Students should bring snacks or a lunch and something to drink for the day.  They should wear comfortable clothing with closed-toed shoes. Pants and a sweatshirt or light jacket would be the best option.  Layering is a good idea because you can add or remove layers as the day progresses.  The paint has completely washed out in the past, but no promises.
In case you were wondering… Getting shot won’t cause any permanent damage, but depending on the range a student is shot from it can sting or even leave bruises.

W&L Group Exercise introduces “Bring a Friend” Week

W&L Group Exercise classes offer a fun and healthy way for our campus and community to be active and lead balanced lives.  If you are already registered for the classes, you know how fun and energizing they can be!  Our goal is to get as many people in our community involved in group exercise as possible to make this campus a healthy and active one.
So for those of you that are currently registered, BRING A FRIEND to class the week of October 2–8!  If you bring a friend who is currently NOT registered for group ex classes, your name and your friend’s name will be entered into a drawing to win a FREE semester of group exercise classes for the next term.  This prize has a value of anywhere from $50 – $150 depending on who wins! Friends, find someone who attends group ex classes and ask if you can come check them out!
Just sign in at the table outside of the dance studio, and put your ticket in the jar to be entered in the raffle.  You may bring as many friends as you would like and your name will be entered into the drawing that many times!  You and your friend could win a free semester of classes and our community becomes healthier and more active together. It’s a win-win for W&L!
We hope to see you next week!

Shmoozing with Bagels — Hillel Bagel Brunch

On Monday, Hillel hosted its first Bagel Brunch of the year. New and returning students were able to meet the new director, Brett Schwartz, as well as Hillel officers, professors, and members of the community over bagels and coffee. The event was well attended and we are all so excited for our first Shabbat Tonight!  This year W&L brought in almost 30 Jewish students and we at Hillel are excited to celebrate the year to come with the entire Jewish community.
