As the semester winds down and before we become wrapped up in finals week, I thought I would highlight some great events going on at “home.” UIC has some things going on to finish up the year. So in case you missed the Annual UIC Fashion show, or Campus Recreation’s Zumbathon…fear not! It’s not to late to take part in UIC events.
1. UIC Theatre’s production of “Time of Your Life”
When: 7:30 p.m. April 19-20, 25-27; 2 p.m. April 21, 28; noon April 24
Support the arts and check out UIC Theatre!
“In the time of your life, live — so that in that wondrous time you shall not add to the misery and sorrow of the world…”
UIC’s landmark theatre season closes joyously with William Saroyan’s true American classic “The Time of Your Life.” The first drama to win both the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the New York Drama Critic Circle Award when it premiered in 1939 toward the end of the Great Depression, it remains eternally contemporary and optimistic through its spring awakening-plea to live life “so that in that wondrous time you shall not add to the misery and sorrow of the world, but shall smile to the infinite delight and mystery of it.”
when: 4-7 p.m. April 24
Where Lecture Center Plaza
Celebrate the end of a great year with Campus Programs and Undergraduate Student Government. One of UIC’s most fun traditions is back on! Visit the roller skating rink in the middle of the Quad, plus free games, tie-dye, airbrush tattoos, giveaways and more! In the case of rain, Recess will be rescheduled one week later, May 1.
I am super excited for this. I am a kid at heart so anytime I take every chance I can to bring myself back to recess.
3. The Annual UIC White Sox Night
When: April 26th
Where: U.S. Cellular Field
UIC students, staff, faculty, alumni and friends are all invited to a fun evening as the White Sox take on the Tampa Bay Rays. Tickets are half price, including $12 and $10 LOWER LEVEL tickets exclusively for this UIC outing!! Also, there will be fireworks after the game! You can buy tickets online at whitesox.com using the code ‘uic’ to get your discount. OR you can avoid online fees and use the online order form.
I can’t believe it is the end of the year again. With that said, we can’t forget the “granddaddy” event of all: graduation! There are graduation ceremonies such as AAAN Commencement ceremony May 10th and the Lavender Graduation May 3rd as well as each of UIC commencement ceremonies. The schedule can be found here.
So how are you celebrating the end of the year?
