Three Barnard Things To Do In October

No, The Cranberries aren’t playing at Barnard, but their music Lingers…

Do you automatically delete your Alumnae Affairs emails? Shame on you! There is good stuff in there! Don’t worry though, I am here to help. Below are my picks for the best alum events of the month.

  1. Edwidge Danticat (’90) speaking at the 92nd Street Y on next Thursday, October 11.  Remember when we all had to read Krik Krak before school started? Was anybody else seriously disappointed that we never got tested on it? Go tell Ms. Danticat how much you enjoyed the assigned pre-Barnard summer reading. Tickets available here.
  2. Get back to campus for the Bacchante Fall Concert on Friday, October 19 at Glicker-Milstein Black Box Theater. The all ladies a cappella group will be performing new-ish music from Amy Winehouse and Florence + the Machine, as well as old favorites like The Cranberries’ “Linger.” (Did just the name of the song make you miss it? Listen to it here.) Register for the concert today!
  3. Break out the beer and head back to school for a little old fashioned tailgating or any other part of the October 20 Homecoming celebration, which includes a dedication of the new sports complex at Columbia. Check out the full schedule here.
