What to Do Weekly: 10/17-10/23
Celebration Weekend, Career Jam, helping out a good cause. There’s a lot to do this week. Don’t miss out. Here is this week’s What to Do Weekly:
#1) Kickstart your career. Skidmore’s Career Development Center is hosting their annual Career Jam event this Friday, October 19 from 3-5pm in the 2nd floor of the dining hall. Known as “the largest on-campus networking event of the year,” Career Jam brings you alumni, parents of students, employers and more to help you get ahead on your career. From representatives in law, healthcare, media, business and much more, this event is a must-attend.
#2) Celebrate. This weekend is Celebration Weekend, and there are a ton of events to keep you occupied. Whether joined by family or flying solo, don’t miss out on some exciting activities, including the men’s soccer game against St. Lawrence Saturday afternoon, fireworks and s’mores Saturday evening, the 5k run-walk Sunday morning and a lot more.
#3) Support an important cause. Downtown hotspot Pig N’ Whistle is hosting a paint and sip fundraiser this Thursday (tomorrow!), October 18 from 6-9pm to help the families of victims of the horrific Schoharie, NY limo crash, the deadliest transportation accident in nine years. Tickets include the paint and sip, a complimentary beverage and entrance into the silent auction. The event will take place at 392 Broadway.
#4) Join Tim Davis for his Tang gallery opening. Eclectic artist Tim Davis is coming to Skidmore for the opening of his Tang exhibit, When We Are Dancing (I Get Ideas). Davis will give a gallery talk at the Tang from 4-5pm this Saturday, October 20, with a reception to follow, where visitors can hear firsthand about his delightfully quirky work.
#5) Go get scared. Yes, another haunted activity, but it is October after all. Field of Horrors will be happening from Friday, October 19–Sunday, October 21. Hosted in Troy, NY at 100 Farrell Road, the weekend of horror features multiple attractions for the price of one. From haunted hayrides to a trip to the underworld, Field of Horrors leaves no (grave)stone unturned.
