Winter may have decided to make a (hopefully) brief return, but there’s no better way to keep warm but to chow down on some free food.
If you had the unfortunate pleasure of living in Darnall Hall your freshman year or, even worse, you live there now, then be sure to celebrate Darnall Hall Day today! While celebrating the life of John Carroll’s mother, Eleanor Darnall, much reminiscing and free food is to be had. Head over to the Darnall lobby from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. this evening.
Everything is better with chocolate, including Passover. Indulge your love of chocolate at Passover Schmooze and Chocolate Seder tomorrow, hosted by the Jewish Chaplaincy and Jewish Student Association. Listen to the Passover experiences and thoughts of some of Georgetown’s own professors from 7 to 8 p.m. in the Makom space in the Leavey Center on Thursday, and eat chocolate until you’re nauseous at the 2nd annual Chocolate Seder afterwards.
Round out the week with a global public health ethics talk, sweetened up with some cookies. Cookie Friday, a regular feature at the Bioethics Research Library in Healy 102, is going all out this week with a talk about normative theories concerning global health and welfare and completely free Sweet Rose Bakery cookies. Be sure to stop by the library from 4 to 5 p.m.
