Students! Do you like wearing disguises? Perhaps you are a handy carver. With Halloween creeping up around the corner, The Office of Student Affairs and your Student Alliance would like to invite you to a ghoulish day of freakish fun.
Please join us for Halloween festivities in the East End. You can carve pumpkins and zombify yourself (ghoulish makeup provided). Between 10 am and 1 pm, photos will be taken of those who’d like to enter the Student Alliance Costume Contest and of carved pumpkins for the OSA sponsored Pumpkin Carving Contest. Carved Pumpkins will also be on display at the Wall of Fame from 1 to 3:30 pm. See links below for contest rules, info and prizes!
Voting will take place via the Student Alliance Facebook page or in person at the Ex’radio booth.

Call for Artists! City of Emeryville’s Earth Day Celebration Recycled Art Exhibition and Purchase Award 2012
Emeryville’s Earth Day Celebration
Recycled Art Exhibition and Purchase Award 2012
Theme: “Bottles and Cans”
REQUEST FOR ARTWORK
The City of Emeryville’s Community Service Department is requesting art pieces from student, emerging and professional artists working in three-dimensional art pieces made “primarily” from recyclable beverage bottles (glass and/or plastic) and metal beverage cans. Art works must be in a format that can be safely displayed to the public and moved by the artist or artists’ team to the City of Emeryville’s Earth Day Celebration Recycled Art Exhibition on April 21, 2012 by 10:30am. Each artist must provide a written description of the artwork not to exceed one letter-sized page in paper form for display at the event (and be able to send this description electronically to the City if selected as a finalist). The artwork will be exhibited at the Earth Day Celebration Recycled Art Exhibition on 62nd Street (ie: on the pavement) between Hollis and Doyle Streets in an outdoor exhibition (rain or shine) setting on April 21, 2012 from 11:00am to 3:00pm.
Art pieces must be dropped off to the Exhibition area (62nd St between Hollis and Doyle) by 10:30am on Saturday, April 21. For more information and art piece guidelines, please click here. For more information about the Earth Day Events, click here.
The goal of the exhibition is to creatively enliven Emeryville’s Earth Day Celebration with a diverse collection of artworks made completely from recyclable beverage bottles (plastic and/or glass) and metal drinking cans to help spread the awareness of recycling and overall environmental awareness. Two artists will be selected as finalists and will have their work purchased and displayed for a one-year period (estimated to be May 2012 through May 2013). The two finalists will receive $250 each for the purchase of their artwork. Artists or Artists’ Teams not selected as finalists will not receive compensation for their work or exhibition.
Welcome back to school. We hope everyone had an enjoyable Easter. If you haven’t already heard, the Office of Student Affairs is hosting an Easter Egg Hunt today. We also have a table full of Easter goodies set up in the student services area. Come check it out, and grab a chocolate egg while you’re at it.
