Last Days of Classes/Study Days/Finals Week Distractions

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

This is it, folks. You’ve been promising your pals that you’d go to their shit all semester, and you’ve been successfully avoided it for the past three months. But it’s time to pay the Pied Piper of Acapella/Comedy/Performance-Club Guilt. And that fucker takes no prisoners. And you definitely don’t have any excuses this time around, because your pal knows you sure as hell weren’t doing work.

It’s also worth noting that attendance at many of these events will likely yield inclusion to an after party or two–which will maximize your opportunity to make moves on that one boy/girl before the semester ends and you go back to your hometown full-to-bursting with the regret that is exclusively tied to missed opportunities. In other words: You’re running out of time, so take a chance, motherfucker.

WIB Talks with Avon Sheriff, Oct. 27 @ 6PM

Monday, October 27th, 2014
Save the dates.

Save the dates.

This evening, Oct. 27th, Skidmore Women in Business will be hosting the first in a three part series entitled “WIB Talks.” This evening’s talk will feature Avon Scherff, owner of Scherff Insurance and Momentum Consulting, and founder of “I Am. I Can“–a nonprofit that connects high school girls with female mentors.

Founded in fall of 2013, Skidmore Women in Business “strives to empower ambitious women across all disciplines to engage in leadership.” Since their founding, they’ve held consistent meetings, represented Skidmore at conferences at Harvard and Wheaton, and hosted panels and speakers.

The club’s doing great and important work, so I encourage you to attend this evening’s talk in Ladd 307 at 6:00pm . You should also keep an eye out for the next two talks: Nov. 10th (with Linda Toohey, Skidmore Board of Trustees Chair) and Nov. 24 (with Corrine Moss Racusin, Assistant Professor and Researcher on Gender Bias).

Be sure to check them out on Facebook and Twitter and stay posted on events they host in the future.
