An off-campus trip is planned for one Saturday to a local amusement park.

  • The SIG Talent Show
    You know that thing that you do so well? Here’s your chance to share it with a very appreciative audience! Whether it is singing a pop culture song, playing a Beethoven sonata, delivering a comedic stand up routine or sharing an athletic feat, the Talent Show is sure to be an evening of amazing entertainment and merriment.

  • Brain Bowl
    Channeling shows such as Jeopardy! and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, students get a chance to work in a team environment to show off all those interesting facts that they have accumulated in the last decade or so. Brain Bowl is the ultimate SIG challenge, combining speed, intellect and knowledge. Set in a game show environment, contestants answer challenging questions in art, history and government, geography, literature, and science and technology.

  • Casino Night
    Gentlemen, dust off those tuxedos and ladies, don those evening gowns for an evening of chance. (Just kidding, you don’t have to dress up!) Transport yourself to Monte Carlo and tap into the strategist within. In this world of games you can test your skills with regards to the intricacies of probability. Whether you are an avid participant or a casual observer, it is sure to be a night of possibilities.

  • Final Dance
    The culminating experience of your three weeks is upon you. You came in as strangers and you now prepare to part as close friends – but not before you party hearty at the final dance! So put on your dancing shoes and your signature party clothes and boogie on down to the dance floor. There will be a live DJ mixing up your favorite tunes and plenty of snacks and beverages to keep you going into the night.
