SCOPE had a lot of fun activities that took place during the past week.
Comedy Week continued for SCOPE as we brought in Digital Caricaturist Angie Jordan into the Programming Space this past Wednesday. Everyone who walked by were laughing and making fun of their friends while their faces were being drawn. Students who participated also had the finalized picture hung around their necks for every student to see.
On Friday, April 5, SCOPE took students to New York City to see Comedian Gabriel Iglesias Live at Radio City Music Hall. Students enjoyed the sights and sounds of NYC beforehand, and loved the show that happened later in the day. SCOPE finished the day with an encore showing of Pitch Perfect back on campus.
On Saturday, April 6, SCOPE did pottery painting in the Programming Space. All the pottery was painted before the event ended. Everyone had fun and cannot wait to see how their pottery ended up. We will email everyone who painted when the pottery is returned to us after they get put into a kiln. SCOPE and Late Night Programming finished Comedy Week with Comedian Ruperto Vanderpool in the Dining Hall. It was a small crowd, but Ruperto kept everyone entertained and had the small crowd laughing.
On Tuesday, April 9, SCOPE had its first showing of Sinister. The students were scared and some even fell out of their seats in shock. Also on Tuesday, Stevie Starr the Human Regurgitator performed in Dodds. Students were in shock and awe as Stevie swallowed whole objects, even a live fish! And spit them back up in one piece. A student also won a gift card. Signups were also on Tuesday to join SCOPE and the Sports Industry Club to the Yankees game this Friday against the Baltimore Orioles on Charger Connection.
