The first couple days here, only freshman were on campus, and there were a lot of activities and free things available that was sponsored by the Campus Activities Programming Association (CAPA). There was free food, hypnotists, obstacle course races, and many more fun things to help make the incoming freshman meet new people and feel at home.
Walking up the stairs to my dorm, I can always see flyers for new CAPA sponsored activities that really aren’t too bad. Sometime in October, the 12th I believe, there is a trip to six flags, but the event that really got me excited was a CAPA sponsored concert coming up on the 22nd of October. Talib Kweli and David Banner are both famous rappers that are coming to perform in the UML Recreation Center, with tickets only 10 dollars! I’m not much of a fan for David Banner, but Talib Kweli happens to be one of my favorite rappers of all time, since he focuses his raps on lyricism and is a lot more political than other rappers. He doesn’t really do “gangster rap” and is mostly known as a political rapper. He’s been around for quite some time now, and is definitely up in the well-known rappers category, so tickets being only 10 dollars for students came as a major surprise for me.
For anyone interested, flyers are all around Leitch and Bourgeois, and tickets are available in the Student Information Centers on North & South Campus. Pricing: $10 for tickets, $20 at the door, and $30 to non-UML students. I believe tickets are available online at www.umltickets.com, but I was having a bit of trouble earlier ordering from the site.
