The Skidmo Scoop: Campus Events for the Week of October 2nd

Audre Lorde

Audre Lorde: The Berlin Years
Monday, October 2nd, 8:00-9:30 p.m.

It’s movie night, bitchez!

Join Feminist Action Network in Emerson to watch the story of Audre Lorde who empowered Afro-German women during the Cold War and challenged white women to recognize their privilege.

And although that’s great and all, she sounds kinda bossy and shrill to me. Nag, nag, nag.


The Zoo Story

The Zoo Story by Edward Albee, Directed by Lily Kamp
Wednesday – Friday, October 4th – 6th, 7:00 p.m.

Think Pixar’s Toy Story, only this time live-action and with all your favorite zoo animals! While Edward Albee’s script is nearly identical to the movie’s, his creative choice to include animals rather than toys totally changes the piece’s dynamics.

Directed by the talented Lily Kamp, this family-friendly play will be performed in JKB’s Studio A. Fans of Woody and Buzz will not want to miss this!

Camp Local and Tie Dye Party
Thursday night, October 5th

Remember when dad would say you guys could have a campout in the backyard over the weekend, but when it was time, he’d be too tired to go get the tent from the basement? And then he’d tell you, “Next time,” so you’d ask him the next Saturday to get the tent, but he’d say, “What are you talking about?” And then he’d feel bad and tell you next weekend for sure, and the whole thing would just start all over until you eventually gave up on that dream?

Well, pick that chin up, little man, because that dream can finally be fulfilled! Even though dad won’t be there, the Outing Club is hosting a campout and Tie Dye party on the South Green.

It’s like Thanksgiving and Christmas are falling on the same day!


Depressed Bakery.jpg

Depressed Bakery
Friday, October 6th, 11:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m

My soul is dark and my heart is black, but you best believe my veins are gonna be all sugar and rainbow sprinkles this Friday! Active Minds is hosting a donation bake sale in the Atrium to cap off Mental Health Awareness Week.

Each baked good will be accompanied by a mental health fact. So, after you get done reading that “depression is forever and it’ll never get better,” you can bite into a delicious brownie and smile, knowing that maybe, just maybe, that’s bullshit.


Welcome Back Bonfire.jpg

Welcome Back Bonfire
Friday, October 6th, 8:00 p.m.

There’s no better way to say welcome back to Skidmore than setting some logs ablaze after students have been here for over a month.

Yeah, the timing of the event doesn’t make sense to us either. But, hey! There will be cider donuts and hot chocolate which is reason enough to show up at Haupt Pond and disregard the date on the calendar.



Awkward Kids Talking Fall Show
Friday, October 6th, 10:00-11:00 p.m.

“Are you going to the Awkward Kids Talking Fall Show in Gannett?”

“Yes, AND, it’s going to be really fun. I am going to go with my friends and we are going to laugh a lot.”

“Yes, AND, isn’t it weird that we’re in this laundromat and that robot keeps staring at us?”

“Yes, AND, I wonder if he’ll come to the AKT show too?”

“Beep boop bop beep, I am the robot. Beep Bop.”

“Say, robot?”

“Beep bop?”

“What’s your favorite dance move?”

*The robot does the robot*

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand scene!


Glotz and Skidz

Homecoming Tailgate
Saturday, October 7th, 11:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Before the biggest dance of the year on Skidmore’s campus, make sure you hit up the tailgate outside in the West Lot! Bring your date so you can vote for Homecoming Court, see the parade, and cheer on the football team.

In preparation for a night that’s sure to be enchanting, one can only expect the tailgate prior to be equally as magical.



2017 African Heritage Awareness Gala
Saturday, October 7th, 5:00-8:00 p.m.

No, this isn’t some trashy party. Or a lame get-together, or sub-par cocktail gathering.

Instead, African Heritage Awareness Club is bringing elegance back to the 2nd floor of dining hall with their 2017 Gala.

Come through for a showcase of all the beautiful cultures that represent the African continent. Rather than Miller Light and pong like the festivities at your apartment, the Gala will feature a mini fashion show, speeches, performances, authentic attires, and African meals, all to bring a slice of the continent to Skidmore.

Keeping it classy!
