While it is definitely not any warmer this Friday than last, the black ice that caused campus to close last Friday is gone, and there is a full slate of activities on tap this weekend.
Tonight and tomorrow an original adaptation of The Scarlet Letter, a novel by Nathaniel Hawthorne, will be presented by the theatre department in the Ulrey Performing Arts Center at 7 p.m.
Hopefully temperatures will rise tomorrow as the Color for a Cause run will be held at 9 a.m. with proceeds going toward the renovation of a safe house for girls under 18 who have been rescued from human trafficking. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. at the intramural fields.
The ball fields also will be busy tomorrow with the Bisons taking on St. Cloud University in a doubleheader beginning at noon at Jerry Moore Field. The Lady Bison softball team will have a doubleheader against Southeastern Oklahoma State, also beginning at noon. Dress warmly as highs are to be in the low 40s. Both teams also will play at noon Sunday weather permitting.
Saturday evening Rhodes Field House will host the final home basketball games of the season with the Lady Bisons playing at 5:30 p.m. and the Bisons at 7:30 p.m., both against Ouachita Baptist University. The Rhodes Rowdies tweeted, “Tomorrow is a BLACKOUT game for Senior Night! Last home game of the season… Let’s make it a 4-hour party, starting at 5:30!”
