Five ways to spend your weekend

The end of the week has finally arrived and although the weekend is a time for students to catch up on sleep or just relax, it is roaring with things to do. From events that will prepare you for your future, to fall activities, to supporting your classmates, there is something for everyone.  Look no further, here are five things to entertain you this weekend:

1.)    Put your Central hoodies aside and dust off the suits and dresses in your closet for the Alpha Kappa Psi Career Day on Friday. Finch Fieldhouse will house businesses ready to recruit students for internships and entry-level positions. The event takes place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Bring your resume and be ready to network with potential employers. The event is sponsored by Alpha Kappa Psi Co-ed Professional Business Fraternity, Career Services and the College of Business Administration.

2.)    Who loves doughnuts, apple cider and homemade Apple Delight? The Zonta Club of Mount Pleasant will host the 26th Annual Zonta Applefest Saturday at Papa’s Pumpkin Patch at 3909 S. Summerton Road from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will also be a mini “Taste of Mt. Pleasant” that will feature local vendors and some of their most popular foods. Don’t miss out on the hay rides and corn maze as well.

3.)    If you’re thinking about what to make for dinner this weekend and running low on fresh fruits and vegetables, come down and meander through the local farmer’s market Saturday. It is located in the City Hall parking lot at 320 W. Broadway from 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

4.)    Support Central’s Trap Door Improv on Saturday as they collaborate with Revolver, an improv team based in Chicago. Revolver is a house team at the iO Theatre and received the Del Award in 2009 for best Harold Team. The event will have two showings on Saturday, one at 8 p.m. and another 10 p.m. The event is free admission and will be held in the Moore Hall Theatre-on-the-side.

5.)    They say music soothes the soul, and you’re in luck because Central vocal students will be performing at the Staples Concert Hall in the Music Building Saturday. The Opera Gala will begin at 8 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
