Sixth annual ‘Bird After Dark’ to take place Nov. 4
Syracuse University Library and the Office of Residence Life in the Division of Student Affairs will host the sixth annual “Bird After Dark” on Friday, Nov. 4, from 9:45 p.m.-1 a.m. in Bird Library.
Students interested in participating should register online at http://orl.syr.edu/current-students/bird-after-dark by Thursday, Nov. 3. Participation is free and is funded through the Division of Student Affairs co-curricular fee.
The event, which is open to all undergraduates, will feature a student DJ, food and board and video games. Activities will help familiarize students with library services and the layout of Bird Library. Students compete in teams of two to hunt through the library, finding answers to trivia questions.
A variety of donations and door prizes help connect students with DSA/University services and local businesses. The top prizes will include Flip cameras, a color printer and accessories, and a SU Snuggie and iHome radio combo.
Last year’s event drew 120 participants and more than 20 volunteers from across campus, and featured more than $500 in donated prizes and gifts from more than 20 on-campus offices and local businesses.
The “Bird After Dark” program was featured as a poster session at the Association of College and Research Libraries annual conference in April in Philadelphia and as a roundtable session on alcohol alternative programming at NASPA II in June in Baltimore.
