Cheap Sports For All Sorts

As prices rise for all the fun things in life, sometimes it’s nice to have a Student ID.  And this post highlights several of those great opportunities.  Major teams in Ohio and Pennsylvania are advertising great pricing on tickets to students.  We’ll highlight some of them today.

Browns Excursion for Marietta College Students

College Union Board is taking a busload of students up to Cleveland Browns Stadium on October 3 for their division match-up against the Cincinnati Bengals.  A $20 ticket can be purchased in the Student Activities office in Andrews Hall.  The ticket will get you on a charter bus up to the game, a ticket to the game itself, and transportation back to Marietta when the game is complete.  Bus leaves at 9 AM on the 3rd.

This is a great opportunity for MC students to go see an NFL game for a very low price.  Instead of paying anywhere between $30 and $50 in gas for your car and anywhere between $40 to $60 for a ticket, you are only paying $20.  Take advantage while you can.  Tickets are going fast.

Paint A Kappa Today From 11 to 5

Paint a Kappa RockSigma Kappa’s Ultraviolet Philanthropy effort kicks off today with their annual Paint A Kappa event.  Donors can choose to either give $1, $2, or $5, and in return, will receive the opportunity to paint a Kappa.  The event runs from 11 AM to 5 PM in front of Andrews Hall.

The Ultraviolet campaign donates money to four different philanthropies, which benefit gerontology, Alzheimer’s research,  Inherit the Earth, and the Maine Sea Coast Mission.

For $1, you can paint a Kappa using a cup of paint.  $2 scores a donor a balloon of paint to use on the Kappa of their choice, and $5 for a bucket of paint to pour on any Kappa.

Here are the times that Kappa’s are scheduled to be around.  I’ve heard rumblings of representatives from other chapters also getting in on the fun, though, so stop by to find your favorite person.

Do You Have Your Fashion I.D.?

Charles Sumner Harrison Organization’s annual fashion show, titled Fashion I.D. this year, is November 20th at 7 pm in Fenton Court.  And I’m writing this to let you know that tickets are on sale now!

Student tickets are $2, while Community Members, Staff, and Faculty tickets are $5.  You can purchase tickets at the Multicultural Lounge in the first floor of Andrews Hall, or find one of the many fashion show volunteers who will be able to sell you a ticket all around campus.

This year, funds raised will go towards the Boys and Girls Club of Marietta, located within the Salvation Army on Front Street.

The Fashion Show is always a huge event on campus, so get a ticket and go see what everybody will be talking about for the next 4 weeks (before and after the show).  It’s gonna be big!

Enhanced Campus Security?

DSCF1239EDITOR’S NOTE:  Ally Janakis is a guest writer for Writing on the Mall.  She is involved with the Media Writing Two class at Marietta College, which has been submitting articles to us.  Her article is the first of many that you will see hit the site.  If you would like to see more like this, just let us know at patrick_h at writingonthemall dot net.

Although we have not progressed to armed guards and watchdogs, Marietta College has made strides in improving security around campus. But are they truly improvements?

The August newsletter sent to students gave an overview of the new security. Parsons Hall, which has been, locked 24/7 for the past two years now also has automatic locks on suite doors and room doors. For Parsons residents living above the first floor entering their room entails swiping their ID card at the door, unlocking their suite door and then unlocking their room door. It also means to use the bathroom in their suite, one must either prop their door or bring their keys.

Junior Jaque Danhires responds negatively to the recent updated security, “I feel protecting the students is very important, but personally as a student who lives in Parsons locking the suite door would have sufficed. I hate going to the bathroom and getting locked out of my room in the middle of the night.”

Another added frustration is that if you lock yourself out more than three times you are fined by Residence Life. Some dorms even require IDs to access the bathroom such as in the Pioneer House.

Panhellenic Council Bid Handouts!

Writing on the Mall was there as Alpha Xi Delta, Chi Omega, and Sigma Kappa cheered, chanted, and welcomed their newest members to their chapters.  The three sororities wrapped up Panhellenic Council Recruitment yesterday with Bid Day, an annual tradition where disaffiliated members (Rho Gammas and freshmen housing Resident Assistants) were presented to their chapters.

As the three chapters marched to their positions in front of Andrews Hall, their new members received their bids and met the women that would be joining their chapter with them.  From there, they run out the front doors and into the waiting arms of their new sisters, where they are given shirts and other items to celebrate their bid acceptance.

In the end, 17 women accepted bids to Alpha Xi Delta and Sigma Kappa, while 15 women accepted bids to Chi Omega.  That means that only Chi Omega can continue to recruit new members with continuous open recruitment.
