This Week at Xavier: Feb. 8-15
OK, so Xavier isn’t New York—the city that never sleeps. Xavier sleeps. Sometimes. And usually just for a little while. But mostly the campus is awake and alive and active with plenty of options to keep students and alumni busy. So the question becomes what to do—or what NOT to do. Xavier magazine understands the challenge, so we created “This Week at Xavier,” a collection of must-do activities.
Usually college students pull all-nighters before exams. But this time, XU students will dance all night to benefit Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center during the seventh annual Dance Marathon. And you’re invited to join, too. There are two options: participate in the dance marathon by raising $20 or more in donations, or come and show your support by buying an entrance ticket for $5 at the door. Register here.
Xavier Music Series: Classical Piano
Sunday, Feb. 10
Treat yourself and someone else to some ear-candy as award-winning classical pianist Dror Biran tickles the ivory keys during Xavier Music Series’ classical piano concert. The performance takes place at 2:30 p.m. in the Gallagher Student Center Theatre. Tickets run $3 to $19.
Xavier and Fordham are both Jesuit universities (of 28 nationwide). One team is known as the Musketeers while the other is known as the Rams. Interested in knowing the outcome of a fight like that? Then watch the two teams battle it out on the basketball court this week. Tickets run $25 to $45. Buy them here.
