This week at Xavier: March 9-March 15
St. Patrick’s Day is that special time of the year when even the unluckiest of people look forward to a little pick-me-up. Whether the cheer comes from donning green apparel, hanging out with friends or celebrating with some green beer, it’s like everyone finds the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Although the big day isn’t until next week, Xavier’s got a lot of “little days” this week so you can be prepared.
Showtyme Cheer: The Cincinnati Curtain Call
Sunday, March 10, at the Cintas Center
11:30 a.m.-6:00 p.m.
Basketball may be pretty much wrapped up in the Cintas Center for the season, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have spirit. Get back into the spring of things during ShowTyme Cheer‘s Cincinnati showcase, featuring cheerleading routines from high school and college teams across the Southwest Ohio region. The two shows include dancing and cheer routines and offer prizes to the winning teams like scholarships and trophies. Register your team for the show online or participate in the audience.
Xavier Battle of the Bands
Tuesday, March 12, in the Gallagher Student Center
7:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m.
What do the Audobon, Vanilla Sake and Broken Corridors all have in common? Not that much, other than the fact that they’re all bands competing in this round of the SAC’s Battle of the Bands competition. The winner of this competition determines XavierFest 2013’s featured student band, so you won’t want to miss out on this night of live music.
A Step Back In Time
Thursday, March 14, in the Gallagher Student Center Atrium
8:30 p.m.-9:30 p.m.
Xavier’s 2011-2012 Club of the Year, The Blue Fire Step Team, is stepping to another level this week as they prepare to stomp their way across the stage on Thursday. Join the team for an exciting night of rhythm as they take you on a journey through time with the historic art form of Step. Check out a video of them performing last summer.
