On Tuesday, Nov. 16 from 7-9 p.m., students can meet in the Sharwan Smith Student Center Ballroom to partake in a carnival. There will be 19 booths for students to visit, some of which offer inflatable basketball and three-legged races. Students that wish to take a break from the excitement can grab some hot chocolate and a bag of popcorn. 

Students can join in the Sharwan Smith Student Center Starlight Room on Wednesday, Nov. 17 from 4-6 p.m. to bejewel a masquerade mask for the upcoming masquerade ball that Friday. Students can come and go as they wish and a mystery treat will be provided.
