Write Night

Tuesday, December 4 from 8:00- 11:45 PM, University Library (Core)

Whether you’re struggling with research or just want to enjoy some pizza as you crank out that final paper, you can come to the library for some help.

Night of the Comet

Come see a free screening of Night of the Comet, the final installment in the Block Museum’s film series “Women at the End of the World.” A cult favorite sci-fi movie about survivors of a near-apocalypse sorting through their new world while trying to avoid zombies, Night of the Comet addresses many of the same political, cultural, and ecological anxieties as Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale.
