Build-A-Friend

Date: Monday, Sept. 10

Time: 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Location: RSC First Floor

Cost: Free!

Hugs are an essential part of life, but sometimes you just don’t have anyone to hug. That’s where Build-A-Friend comes in! You can stuff, name, build a meaningful relationship with, and hug, a wonderful animal of your own this Monday at Build-A-Friend. Available animals range from the endangered Polar Bear to the classic Teddy; you can even make it your business to stuff a monkey! Because everybody needs a friend and supplies are limited, each student may only stuff one animal.

Monsters for Childhood Cancer

Date: Monday, Sept. 10

Time: 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Location: RSC First Floor

Cost: Free!

Does it scare you how much you love hugging monsters? Does it scare you how wonderful you feel while helping others? Come to Monsters for Childhood Cancer and stuff a friend for a child in need. There aren’t many cuter, more fun ways to help a community that deserves your love and attention.

Time: 5 – 8 p.m.

Shockers After Dark

Time: 8 – 11 p.m.
