Boston College's Campus Activities Board (CAB) has hosted a multitude of successful events so far this year. Andy Grammer’s performance at Robsham, apple picking at Honey Pot Hill Orchard and the September 24 Red Sox vs. Rays baseball game are just a few out of the many fun-filled fall happenings that CAB has arranged in the short time that students have been back on campus for the semester. CAB is continuously providing BC students with the chance to be exposed to a variety of opportunities, both on and off campus. With many more appealing CAB events approaching this month and beyond, there’s still time for you to experience the most anticipated occasions of the fall.
Judah Friedlander at Robsham
Ever dream of witnessing a comedic genius live? If so, clear your schedule for this Friday, October 10. Judah Friedlander, star of NBC’s hit comedy series “30 Rock," will take the stage in Robsham Theater at 7:00 p.m. to deliver an entertaining and intimate comedic show. As an added bonus, comedian Chris Gethard will also make an appearance on this sure to be laughter-filled night. Tickets are $10, and are currently available for purchase through Robsham's website.
The recent announcement of hip-hop artist Shwayze being featured in BC’s 2014 Homecoming weekend has BC students “Buzzin.” Though the specifics of the concert are lacking on the BC website, this much we know: it’s on Thursday, October 16, it is a 1.5 hour-long show beginning at 6:30 p.m., and it’s free. Get ready to kick off the Homecoming festivities by jamming to “Corona and Lime”, and maybe even drink one, too--only if you’re 21, of course.
This year's homecoming dance will be held at the Sheraton Boston on Friday, October 17, with an appropriate theme of "FANCY." The event will feature a DJ set from The Knocks and a performance by Electronic State of Mind.
