Feeling overwhelmed by finals? When you start talking about Shakespeare’s economic theory or George Washington’s impact on the Civil War, you know it’s time to take a break. Luckily for you, Georgetown (and the surrounding area) has a busy schedule of events to give students opportunities for study-week getaways.
Monday, April 29th @ 7:30 PM- Georgetown University Chamber Singers
On Monday night in the Gonda Theater in Davis Performing Arts Center, Georgetown’s very own Chamber singers will be performing at 7:30pm. Come out for a great concert of chamber music celebrating the Italian Renaissance, as well as supporting your fellow students.
Tuesday, April 30th @ 10:30 AM- Bill Clinton
As I’m sure most of you have heard, former president Bill Clinton will be at Georgetown on Tuesday, giving a lecture in the morning in Gaston Hall. Doors open at 9am, close at 10:15am, and students are not supposed to begin lining up before 7am. What better way to get motivated for finals than to go listen to a Georgetown alumnus who made it to the pinnacle of his field, and surely still has a lot of insight.
Every night @ 6 PM- Free Concerts at the Kennedy Center
Looking to get off campus, see a concert, and not have to pay? The Kennedy Center has your answer! Every night at 6pm, the Kennedy Center has free concerts on the Millennium Stage, starting this week with Dance Metro DC on Monday and the US Army Field Band Jazz Ambassadors Tuesday night. The full schedule can be found here.
Friday, May 3rd @ 11:00 AM- 12:00 PM- Free Yoga
Need to de-stress? Yates will be having free yoga on Friday morning in the dance/exercise room. No registration is required, you just need to be a Georgetown student. Find out more information at the Yates site.
There are various other events going on, so be sure to check out your Facebook invites and the Georgetown events page. Also, the Meditation Center or your building’s Chaplain in Residence can offer opportunities to relax and de-stress. And if you don’t have time to go to one of these events, just be sure to take a few minutes to take a break and take a couple deep breaths. Good luck!
