Shortly after Spring Break, the home stretch for the school year has arrived. The Jamestown Activities Board (JAB) is planning their annual Jimmie Jive Week, a full week of free events for students.
The week kicks off Saturday March 16th with the annual semi-formal dance from 9pm to 1am at the Gladstone Inn in Jamestown. The theme is The Emerald Ball. Shuttles will be provided to and from campus in front of the Badal Nafus Center. Food and refreshments will be provided.
On Monday March 18th, the monthly Trivia Knight will challenge your thinking with a full hour of trivia questions beginning at 9pm in the J-House. Snacks will be provided. Gather a team of friends (at least 3 people) and win some awesome prizes. There are only two more trivia events after this, so it’s never too late to get started!
Tuesday brings a canvas painting night in the Reiland Fine Arts Center. Snacks and supplies will be provided. This is a relaxing time to focus on what painting whatever your heart desires. The event begins at 9pm in the Reiland lobby.
Grocery Bag Bingo is always a much-anticipated event for students every semester, but Wednesday’s event gives the winners more “buying power” with their prizes. Gift Card bingo will give participants an opportunity to win large gift cards to businesses college students use most. Each gift card will be valued at $50, this is in addition to door prizes giving every participant a great chance at winning a prize!
Jamestown welcomes nationally acclaimed Magician Ben Seidman on Thursday for a performance that will have you stunned. Ben has been featured on channels such as The CW and the Travel Channel. He can also be seen on the Netflix original brainchild. His performance will be held at 9pm in the Reiland Fine Arts Center.
Go Orange Friday closes out Jimmie Jive Week. Students are encouraged to wear Jimmie gear. JAB members will be walking around campus looking for those students. If a JAB member sees you in Jimmie gear, you may just get a prize that will make your day.
