Feel like your time on campus is not as exciting as it could be? Do you feel like you need to prepare for a zombie apocalypse? Do you have class on south campus!? Then UML’s game of Humans Vs. Zombies is the game for you! Basically this is how it works. You all sign up at this site right here: http://umasslowell.hvzsource.com/index.php
Once you sign up, you will either be assigned as a HUMAN (resistance) or you will be the original ZOMBIE (hord) Humans will wear a bandanna provided by the people who run the game around their arm, and it will say HUMAN on it. Zombies will wear the bandanna that says ZOMBIE on it on their forehead. Now, it is the humans job to stay alive by avoiding the zombies. The humans won’t be defenseless though! All humans are allowed to have 6 seed packets on their person at all times, and if a zombie is hit by one of these packets, a zombie will become stunned for 15 minutes before he or she can attack again, giving ample time to the human to run away to a safe zone. All indoor buildings and sidewalks will be called *safe zones* and zombies cannot maul humans while they are in the safe zones. It is the zombies goal to eat all the humans (this is done by tagging one of them) and once a human is tagged by a zombie, they too become a zombie!! A zombie must tag a human once every two days, otherwise the zombie will *starve* and die and not be a part of the game any more. Now there are also special missions that humans will go on and if the succeed, then humans will be granted special items to help defend themselves against a zombie such as an extra life, or being able to not wear your bandanna for a day so zombies wont know if you’re playing or not! On the other side, zombies also get upgrades too from time to time… but you will have to play to find out what they are! The game is over when either all the zombies die, or all of the humans are turned into zombies. Its a great way to have fun on campus during the school day and its a great game to play with your friends, so team up, join on the site that is provided and happy hunting! (more in depth rules are provided on the site)
Good luck being the last human alive,
James ( <— Will probably not be the last human alive)

The best way to get involved would be getting a group of friends together and making a team… Its a fun way to play sports but not at the varsity level. Don’t have enough players not a problem there are people who sign up as a free agent, and can go to any team.
Last year I tried something totally different, broom ball. What is broom ball? Think about hockey, subtract, some pads, skates, and gloves. What are you left with, sticks a helmet, a ball and a bunch of people. Thus Broom ball…..Try it!!!!!!!
Sign up for the 2nd half of intramural’s is starting SOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!
Tomorrow is the first day of Fall which is by far my favorite season. Let’s be honest, the weather is much nicer, the foliage is gorgeous, and there is so much to do! I am here to inform you of such things to do whether it be in Lowell or the surrounding cities and states.
Apple Picking and apple pie making! Apple picking is my absolute favorite thing to do in the fall. I can very easily eat 3 apples in the process of apple picking. Luckily there are a bunch of apple orchards in the area so you can go out with a bunch of friends and make a day out of it!
Pumpkin related items! Pumpkins go hand in hand with apples. Most of the time you can find pumpkins at apple orchards or even grocery stores. Another awesome thing is that you can find a lot of pumpkin carving stencils online for free or little money. Remember to keep the seeds so you can roast them!
Close by orchards include Mack’s Apples in Londonderry, NH, Parlee Farms in Tyngsboro, MA, and Mann Orchards in Methuen, MA.
Salem Witches! Okay, I lied when I said that apple picking was my favorite thing to do in the fall, the Salem witches are by far my favorite. Grab a couple friends some Sunday and head down to Salem, MA. My favorite attractions? The witch museum, the pirate museum, and the House of the Seven Gables. Other favorite? Ruth’s Italian ice in the mall! They have Swedish Fish Italian ice, it is amazing! Click here! for more information of all the events in Salem.
Trick or Treating / Costumes! The university offers “Safe Zone Trick or Treating” in Sheehy and Concordia. You can stand outside your room and hand out candy or participate in the haunted house in the Concordia basement. Keep your eyes peeled on all the school bulletin boards for more information.
Foliage! Pack a picnic and take a ride up to New Hampshire or anywhere through Massachusetts and take a good look at the changing colors of leaves. Pretty soon those leaves will be gone and we’ll be waiting for snow (hopefully not too soon)!
Beginning Hockey Games! The first hockey game of the season is October 3 at 3 p.m. versus New Brunswick at the Tsongas Center! It’ll be a good time for all! Check out our athletic site for the complete hockey schedule here!
I hope this inspires a lot of you to get out there and do something (when you aren’t busy with homework)!
Tell us if you’ve gone to any of these places or plan on it!
Hello everyone! I hope you are enjoying this fantastically beautiful Tuesday…day! It has been the first few weeks of school and this blog is for all of you who are living on campus and have a room mate… or 2… or 3! I’m sure that some of you by now are ready to rip out your hair because your room mate(s) are driving you up a wall and you want to get as far away from them as possible. Just take a few steps back a a few deep breaths and TALK to your room mate. Communication is a big part of any kind of friendship or rather in this case: ROOMMATESHIP. (Brand new word for all of you, feel free to use it in everyday conversation). Get to know you’re room mate in case you haven’t already.. You might find that you have a lot more in common than you thought and best yet, if you talk it out, your room mate will be more aware of what they are doing to drive you absolutely insane (and bald), and will stop doing the annoying act that is making Rogaine’s stock go through the roof!
