Here’s a quick reminder for you research-loving undergraduate students: the deadline to apply to the upcoming Newberry Library Undergraduate Seminar is tomorrow, Friday, October 18. Get those applications turned in ASAP!
The DePaul P.O.E.T.S. (or, as their close friends prefer to call them, Presenters of Enlightenment Through Spoken-Word) will be holding their very first open mic of the year on Monday, October 21 from 8:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. in the Brownstone’s Annex! Come and perform your own poetry, rap, music, and more — or just come and listen while the P.O.E.T.S. peeps spit some spoken-word magic. And did I mention there’s free food involved?
And finally, as all of us DePaul students already know, Chicago is known for many awesome things, but two in particular come up again and again: Chicago is home to the world’s best pizza and a fantastic theatre scene. On Wednesday, October 23, the Goodman Theatre, one of Chicago’s absolute gems for live stage performances, is inviting college students to come and enjoy both — pizza and a play— for only $10 per ticket! From 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., enjoy some Chicago pizza and pop in the Goodman’s 2nd floor lobby. Then, at 7:30, settle into your seats and enjoy the Goodman’s production of Pullman Porter Blues. Take a music-fueled trip with back in time to the luxurious Pullman trains of the 1930s and see classic blues favorites like “Sweet Home Chicago” come to life with a live onstage band.
