Seventh annual “Bird After Dark” on November 2nd

Syracuse University Library and the Office of Residence Life in the Division of Student Affairs will host the 7th Annual Bird After Dark on Friday, November 2, from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. in Bird Library.

Students interested in participating should register online at by Thursday, November 1st at 11:59 p.m. Participation is free and is funded through the DSA co-curricular fee.

The event, which is open to all undergraduates, 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. Food, board and video games, and a student DJ will be available throughout the evening.

A variety of donations and door prizes help connect students with DSA/University services and local businesses. The winning team will receive Kindle e-readers and the runners-up will get iPod Shuffles.

Last year’s event drew 100 participants and more than 20 volunteers from across campus, and featured more than $500 in donated prizes and gifts from over 20 on-campus offices and local businesses.

This year’s event will be part of International Games Day @ your library (technically on Nov. 3), an initiative of the American Library Association “to reconnect communities through their libraries around the educational, recreational, and social value of all types of games.”
