10 Things To Do This Weekend

Friday, April 16th, 2010

1) Get cultured. SOCA (Stanford Organizing Community for the Arts) is presenting the 11th annual An Art Affair, this weekend in White Plaza, part the reason all those white tents popped up earlier this week.  With over 350 pieces of visual art and installations, tons of student performances and FREE FOOD (fyi, The Cheesecake Factory caters on Friday), it’s the perfect way to be amazed by some of Stanford’s incredibly talented students.

2) FutureFest, aka the other reason all those white tents are in White Plaza.  Presented by GAIA (Green Alliance for Innovative Action), this Saturday from 1pm-7pm, Stanford will celebrate all things green and environmentally friendly with activities, Sustainable Fashion Show, and student performances. The headliners of the day include  Mr. Van Jones himself, the former green jobs advisor to Pres. Obama, as the speaker and the always entertaining De La Soul will be closing musical act.

3) Enjoy singing, dancing and fairy tales gone awry? If yes, then you still have time to see Ram’s Head spring musical Into The Woods this weekend before it ends its run.  As it’s biggest production of the year, the musical promises to be memorable one.

4) Stanford Women’s Leadership Conference. If you’re female and you like to lead, this is the place to be.  Put on by the WCC (Women’s Community Center), the conference is meant help women empower each other through networking and inspiring guest speakers.

5) Study for those midterms coming up next week.  Just a thought.
