Best Events of The Week At UMD 4/7/2014

Being on a campus of thousands can be overwhelming sometimes. It’s hard to stay aware of everything happening on campus throughout the week which is why we’re here to help!

If you want your event to be included, please tweet us @pulsefeedz.

Michael Sam: In The Spotlight

When? Monday at 12:30 p.m.

Where? Eaton Theater, Knight Hall

What? A panel discussion on what effect Michael Sam’s public statement of sexuality will have on sports.

Fast Food Nation Screening

When? Wednesday 6 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Where? Francis Scott Key 0106

  1. Also Gymkana Homeshow is in Comcast Center Friday April 11 and Saturday April 12th! 7 p.m. both nights $7 tickets for UMD students.

    Gymkana is a 60+ year old performing gymnastics/acrobatic group on campus that is now also a public outreach group through UMD’s school of public health advocating a drug free lifestyle, particularly to local youth. The troupe is widely recognized around campus for their vault act often performed at Maryland Madness and the Duke game where troupers flip through a ring of fire. The troupe competed on America’s Got Talent in recent years and has performed at the Baltimore Health Expo, D.C. Cherry Blossom parade and many local elementary, middle, and high schools during its spring season.

    1. Also I accidentally posted my name as my email address…if the comment gets moderated if you could either delete it or just not post my email address, that would be great, thanks!
