Catch the Owls in action


Last year, women’s basketball finished the regular season ranked 15th in the nation, and already this year, senior forward Candice Dupree has been called “the best player in America that you’ve probably never seen play.

Tickets, $5–$7, are available at 888-OWLS-TIX, www.liacourascenter.com or the Liacouras Center box office.

For $30, students can still get a Wild Cherry pass at the box office, which gets them into all men’s and women’s basketball games for the rest of the season.



Carnival of Cultures promotes diversity

A number of organizations and departments across campus pooled their resources to create the Carnival of Cultures this year to help promote international awareness and cultural diversity on campus.

Student organizations and academic departments hosted tables and performed throughout the day.

Performances included Russian folk songs, salsa strolls, stepping and reggaeton dance.

The carnival, held in mid-November, was sponsored by International Programs, Student Affairs, the Fox International M.B.A., STA Travel, OIS/IELP, CIBER, IBA, Latin American studies and Asian studies.
