Trivia Night!

Hey everyone!

Welcome to Trivia Night!

Unfortunately, Gina was not feeling well, so I decided to go to the Den with my best friends. At this event, students can participate in "Trivia Night" by playing with a team of 2-6 people; but first, in order for your team to participate in this event, you each must buy something of your choosing at the den to play the game & by doing this, you will also receive a free drink.

Whichever team receives the most points by the end of the four rounds, will win a first place prize (which my team won!), and there are 2nd and 3rd place prizes as well. First place offers a goodie basket with 100$ worth of dining dollars; second place offers a goodie basket with 50$ worth of dining dollars; third place offers a pepsi- prize basket! You can also raffle to win a flatscreen tv!

We hope you enjoy the video! :)

Our Interview With The Struts!

Hey everyone!

Welcome to our interview with The Struts! We got the chance to sit down with the four band members and ask them a couple questions for our very own blog/vlog.

The Struts are an English rock band from Derby, Derbyshire; the band consists of vocalist Luke Spiller, guitarist Adam Slack, bassist Jed Elliott, and drummer Gethin Davies. We don't want to give you too much information on them, that is why we want you all to watch our video first! 

We had an amazing time with these awesome men and we can't thank them enough for letting us interview them before the show! They also put on an incredible show by opening up for Nelly!

We hope you enjoy the video! :)

CU invites Alison Bechdel!

Hi everyone!

We recently went to an event that was held in Hart Chapel, where there was a speaker who came in named Alison Bechdel. Alison Bechdel is a famous cartoonist known for her comic strip, "Dykes to Watch Out For", and the development of the Bechdel test. Also, she was known for other accomplishments in her life including her graphic memoir, "Fun Home", winning a Tony Award for Best Musical. She has won more than one Tony Award and multiple awards as well.

Just being able to listen to her and her background was truly amazing. She has come a long way in her life and we believe she is a true inspiration to a lot of people. We are very happy we were able to see her speak and if you weren't able to see her, we hope one day you will take the opportunity to go listen to her story.

We hope you enjoy the video!

Walk A Mile In Her Shoes!

Hi everyone!

Welcome to a special event held here at Clarion University called Walk A Mile In Her Shoes. This event spreads awareness to help prevent sexual violence against women; it was held in Gemmell MPR, on April 12th.

Any man/woman can participate in this event by walking a mile around campus in support of this cause. The men who participate in this cause have to wear women's heels and walk the entire mile in these shoes.

This was our very first time going to this special event and we truly are amazed on how many people encourage such an important principle, not just toward us women, but also towards other men who have faced sexual violence. If you missed out on the event this year, please attempt to go out and participate next year!

We hope you enjoy!
