HILC’s Hall Council is planning an amazing event called Around the World, and they want your help in sharing your culture or a culture you love!

Are you interested in sharing your culture with HILC residents? HILC’s Hall Council is organizing Around the World, which will take place in mid-March (date/time TBA). Each lounge in the building will be a "booth" for one continent, and will have food, music, games, and activities from various countries and cultures from that continent. If you're interested in participating please fill out the interest form linked below. Please note that by filling out this interest form, you won't be committing to anything at the moment - this is just to get a general idea of who's interested. Thank you!

HILC’s very own Ankita Bhattacharjee (RA of Unit 3) will be starring in a lead role in the play The Nether (by Jennifer Howell) at the Schwartz Center for the Performing Arts next weekend!  We have free tickets for the Friday 5:00pm show, so if you're interested in attending, please contact RHD Bethany (brr57). 


The Nether is a virtual wonderland that provides total sensory immersion. Just log in, choose an identity, and indulge your every desire. But when a young detective uncovers a disturbing brand of entertainment, she triggers an interrogation into the darkest corners of the imagination.

Part crime drama and part sci-fi thriller, Jennifer Haley's haunting play The Nether investigates the boundaries of ethics and human desire in a world of ever-changing technology. “The Nether” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
