Hey friends and happy Friday! It’s half way through the semester and now transitioning from sweater to coat weather. Sooner than you know it, it’ll be Thanksgiving weekend!I’ll back track a little bit… It’s t-minus 7 days until Halloween. Fun fact: Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.
For those who don’t celebrate Halloween, there are events happening on campus that are non-holiday related. There are events on campus for those who would like something to do on Halloween, too! UMass Lowell is an inclusive community for everyone attending the University. Here are some events listed below with a description about them!
For those who are unsure of what “the Commons” is, it is Fox Commons that is located on the firstfloor of Fox Hall on East Campus. The Commons is an area where everyone in the University is invited to hangout, get food or participate in events hosted by a club or student workers. There are events every week. Just drop right on by!
These are more geared towards Halloween. If you’d like to pass by anytime, feel free to do so.
If you like to watch movies, a big marvel fan or would just like to do something Wednesday night, Guardians of the Galaxy is getting screened at Moloney Hall at University Crossing! The movie is about a group of space criminals must work together the fanatical villain Ronan the Accuser from destroying the galaxy.
