November is Here!

Hello everybody! It’s now November meaning in only about one month from now the first semester will be over! It’s hard for my Freshman self to believe that I am almost done one whole semester of college since I feel like move in day was yesterday! Some of you will only have one more semester left here at the U as a full time student or plenty of students, like myself have many more semesters to come. But upperclassmen, at least we know our ways around campus now so we don’t need help!

I hope you all had a lovely week since there was so many Halloween festivities! The hoedown was fun, there was a lot of pumpkin painting, food, games, and henna tattoos going on and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and have a great time! :) But now it’s time to get into some November events…

Last night, it was a big day for Women’s soccer! They beat Moravian in a close game, 1-0. That was a play off game everyone so we need to all get together on Saturday on the home side bleachers to cheer our lady royals on!

Also, there was a conversation between Paul Holdengraber, and Douglas Carter Beane in the Royal Theater about Douglas’ fame on broadway! It was hilarious, interesting, and a great time, even though it is considered a lecture. Douglas is a truly an amazing writer and director and I highly suggest you all looking him up online, or watching any of his plays! There will be one going on PBS in the fall next year for 10 years so you’ll be able to catch it!

Don’t forget this weekend, USPB is hosting the Royal Ball! Tickets are only $3 which includes a night of dancing and food in the Roaring Twenties! I heard there will also be a photo booth and a candy bar so make sure you all go! :)

Today, at 11:30am, tickets for the NY and Broadway trip go on sale in DeNaples center! It’s only $25 for a whole day in the city and a ticket to see a show! That’s an amazing deal no one should skip out on!

Tomorrow night, at 9pm there will be the Talent show with many of our fellow students singing, dancing, and acting! It will be a blast seeing what our fellow classmates are capable of outside of the classroom! :)

Lastly, Godspell will be running this whole weekend by our student run theater club at the Elm Park Methodist church on campus! Tickets are only $5 and you can reserve them all week in DeNaples or show up at the door! These students have worked hard and long for this play so I highly suggest you all go see it!

I hope you all have a fantastic week here at the U!

Well, that’s all I have for this week’s blog, until next time friends, Rebecca DiValerio!
