Tie-Dye with Helping Hands

Helping Hands will be holding their November club bonding on Wednesday, Nov. 16 in the Kirkhof Center room 2263 from 7:30-8:30 p.m.

This month, the group is hosting a tie-dye event and will provide the dye. Those interested in going only need to bring an article of white clothing to tie-dye. A gallon ziplock bag or plastic bag to put the garment in afterward is not required, but is recommended.

Stop by CAB’s coffeehouse

On Wednesday, Nov. 16 the Campus Activities Board (CAB) will be hosting a coffeehouse event in the Thornapple room in Kirkhof Center from 7-9 p.m.

From 7-8 p.m. there will be student performances, and for the rest of the night the floor will be open for karaoke with a Taylor Swift-themed karaoke machine.

The coffee bar will be open while supplies last.

Get tips to manage mental health

On Thursday, Nov. 17 Alpha Kappa Psi Co-Ed professional business fraternity will be partnering with the Counseling Center to help students manage their mental health.

The event is a workshop session from 6-7:30 p.m. The workshop is being held over Zoom, so participants will need to sign up in advance to receive the link.

The link is available via the Lakerlink events page.

Get pho with the Vietnamese Cultural Association

The Vietnamese Cultural Association (VCA) will be hosting its annual pho night on Friday, Nov. 18.

Pho will be available from 6-8 p.m. in the Niemeyer Multipurpose room. This event is BYOB, or, “bring your own bowl.” VCA will be bringing some extra bowls, but supplies are limited.

This event is being held in part to help children in Vietnam, as a portion of the money made will be donated to Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation. They will also be educating attendants on the foundation, so others can donate straight to the foundation if interested.

VCA will be offering bowls of pho for $8, pandan waffles for $5 and Vietnamese coffee for $2. They will be taking payment as Venmo or cash only.

There will also be a pho eating contest starting at 7:30 p.m. Competition bowls will be $12 because they are larger. Only 10 people will be able to compete in this and the winner will receive a prize. After the competition, there’ll be a karaoke machine.

This event is being sponsored by Kim Nhung Supermarket.
