Thirsty Thursday is the first of two events in The Cooks and Books Series. Focusing on social engagement, this event revolves around bringing our student body closer to our physical campus and to inform the student body in a more inclusive and intimate way (rather than e-mail and Sakai). This event will be hosted by The Cooks and Books organizing committee and is sponsored by Student Life.
The Cooks and Books Series is a student-led and organized academic and community building series focused on bringing our campus closer, both socially through a “community-tea” like event called Thirsty Thursday, and academically, through the Student Scholarship Series – an event that gives students an opportunity to get feedback on their presentation content or style, dry-run a symposium/thesis presentation, or even just to share an awesome scholarly achievement (it could be a painting, short story, paper, dissertation, etc.).
Thirsty Thursday, held in the Lobby at Antioch University Seattle on May 2, 2013, will primarily be a potluck and social event – feel free to bring food that you have a personal connection to. This is not mandatory for attendance, but encouraged – there will be snacks and pizza provided, just in case.
Along with the potluck, there will also be a chance for on-campus student organizations, groups who have student members, student unions, and the like, to have a table and given the chance to report their activities back to the student body. For example, the Planning and Budget Committee, which has one student representative, will have a table in order to share current conversations or clarify recent budgeting issues (like our tuition increase) to the student body.
These events are sponsored by Student Life and is part of Ian Smithgall’s Change Project for the Center of Creative Change.
