Dain's Place is the place to be this week!
Colorful characters,
I'm pumped for GPSC's first Thirsty THURSDAY of the summer at Dain's Place (one of the Top 25 College Bars!). Enjoy the open bar while it lasts and beer pitchers all night with your classy colleagues. If you want to pre-game Thirsty Thursdays, come out to TRIVIA NIGHT on Wednesday at the same awesome bar, hosted by your trusty GPSC Communications Coordinator (that's me, y'all).
Don't worry, I ask easy questions!

Fresh Docs is a works-in-progress film series presented by the Center for Documentary Studies and the Southern Documentary Fund.

Van Wyk's film chronicles Iraqi artist Ahmed Fadaam's struggles to adapt to life in exile, and bringing his family to live with him in the American South, where he is a visiting professor at UNC-Chapel Hill. Dorfman's film tells the story of Tommy, who is sixty years-old, autistic, and has a life-long dream to sing with a Big Band a la Frank Sinatra.
