Alright Mavericks, it is the first full week of February. As January may have seemed to drag on for a little too long, it is now a new month with more things to look forward to. Students you are on the fourth week of school. Which means after this next week there are four more weeks until spring break. To keep you occupied from planning and getting excited for your break plans here are some things happening on and around campus this week.

A few new activities for students to try this week is on Tuesday head to The Point in the University Center for Casino Night.

Maddie Banfield | The Criterion

PAC is hosting this event from 6 – 8 p.m. No need to go to Vegas with this event right on campus. There is also a Speed Friending event on Wednesday night. This is hosted in the Grand Mesa Hall Multipurpose room and will be from 8 – 9 p.m. Instead of speed dating why not just try speed friending? Everyone can always use more friends.

There are club meetings that are sometimes posted in the Stall Street Journals or in the halls. Make sure to always keep your eyes open if you are interested in joining different clubs. The young life club will meet on Monday night in the UC from 3 – 4:15 p.m.
