Syracuse University Library and the Office of Residence Life in the Division of Student Affairs will host the 6th Annual Bird After Dark on Friday, November 4, from 9:45 p.m. to 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, November 3rd. Participation is free and is funded through the DSA 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 over 20 on-campus offices and local businesses.
On a professional level, 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.
