Fall into the new year


Date IdeasAmelia Wang/THE REVIEW
The university welcomes back students with a series of fall events.

Now that everyone is back at school, getting used to the old routine can be a daunting task. Classes, clubs, work and the impending fear of exams all contribute to a less-than-free social calendar, but there comes a time when you just have to make it happen.

Chiddy Bang: Any music lovers out there? On Saturday, Sept. 12, hip-hop artist Chiddy Bang will perform in the Trabant Multipurpose Rooms at 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $8 for students and $15 for the general public. Use this as an opportunity to bust out those embarrassing dance moves. And hey, it’ll be loud enough, so you can sing along without people hearing your tone-deaf howl.

SCPAB Film Series: If your social life takes a huge hit over the course of the semester, you’re in luck because you could potentially always have something to do on your Friday and Saturday nights. Every weekend, SCPAB runs its semester long film series. Tickets are $3 at the Trabant box office. This year, some popular films include: “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Paper Towns” and “Trainwreck.” A list of the full schedule can be found on the SCPAB website.

Newark Community Day: On Sunday, Sept. 20, the City of Newark is hosting its annual Newark Community Day on the Green. Local food and craft vendors will set up shop from Memorial Hall to Main Street, so if you happen to see a lot of hustle and bustle that day, know that you’ve stumbled upon a thing that could be very exciting.

REP Productions: For the cultured crowd out there, the university’s Resident Ensemble Players (REP) put on several productions over the course of the year. This semester, they will be performing “The Patsy,” running from Sept. 23 to Oct. 11, and “Heartbreak House,” running from Nov. 11 to Dec. 6. Ticket prices vary depending on the production and seating, though student prices are discounted. Check the REP website for details.

Upright Citizens Brigade: Ever heard of the little-known Amy Poehler? Well, she got her start in a tiny improv group called the Upright Citizens Brigade. Since then, notables such as Aziz Ansari, Ed Helms, Rob Riggle and many others have performed with the group, making it a notable breeding ground for comedic talent. The group will be performing in the Perkins Student Center on Sept. 11 from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. Student improv groups, the Rubber Chickens and Riot Act, will also be performing.

Walk Away From Cancer Kick-off Event: If you’re eager to walk for a good cause, take note of this going on during the week of Sept. 28. Alfred Lerner Hall is hosting the event’s kick-off, which will feature free giveaways, prizes and food. The cost to participate is $15 per walker. All participants will receive a T-shirt and pedometer. Entries will be accepted until 3 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 30.
