Wild Card Wednesdays
Wednesdays are wild at the Hub! Every month we’ll rotate through different activities, and they’ll always be a blast and cheap or free. Activities usually start at 7:00pm and go until closing time. Watch this page to find out what’s coming up.
March 1: Colossal Games Night
We’ll have giant Jenga, KerPlunk, Cornhole, bowling and more set up for free play in the Hub. Pretend you’re a giant by playing some colossal games while enjoying colossal food specials. And if you stick around, you’ll be able to hear the announcement of the winners in the 2017 REC elections!
March 8: Karaoke Night
We’ll provide the music—you just bring your A-game! You can sing your heart out the second Wednesday of every month. We’ll also have a bonus karaoke night at the end of the month so you can get your fix. Prizes donated by Wildrose will be drawn throughout the night.
March 15: Paint Night
Come enjoy a night of social painting, led by MRU’s Visual Arts Club! No previous experience required. Free for MRU students, $15 for guests. There are 50 spots available; 35 will be reserved for MRU students and 15 for non-students. To secure a spot for the event, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and whether or not you are a student by March 13. Arrive at the Hub by 7:15 at the latest, or your spot will be given away. Last semester’s Paint Night filled up extremely quickly, so those who participated last time cannot pre-register, but may seek entry at the door (first come, first served). UPDATE: We’ve now reached 50 reservations. If you weren’t able to reserve a spot, you can still try your luck at the door – we’ll start giving away any no-show spots at 7:15.
March 22: Name That Tune
Test your knowledge of different decades of music with a team of your favourite music nerds, or enter as an individual and you’ll be assigned a team. The game starts at 8:00pm but the host will start putting teams together at 7:00pm, so make sure you get to the Hub early if you want to sign up!
March 29: Karaoke Night
Second verse, same as the first! Come sing your favourite songs in front of all your friends. Prizes donated by Wildrose will be drawn throughout the night.
April 5: SAMRU’s Got Talent!
For the final Wild Card Wednesday of the year, we’re teaming up with several student clubs to bring you a contest showcasing the amazing talent here at MRU! Student and alumni acts will have five minutes each on the Hub stage to wow a panel of judges, who will vote on the performances. At the end of the evening, votes will be tallied and prizes awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, along with the Audience Favourite.
In order to put on this awesome show, we need awesome student talent. The competition is open to MRU students and alumni, and we’ll be accepting all kinds of acts – poetry, singing, guitar-shredding, magicking, fushigi ball wizardry, you name it – provided they’re under 5 minutes in length.
To sign up, email email@example.com by March 22 with your name, a description of your act, and your student status (i.e. whether you’re a student or alumnus). We’re operating on a first-come, first-served basis, but late applicants will be put on a waitlist in case any acts drop out. The showcase will take place on April 5.
Student Nights at the Hub
That’s right: we host a student night every Thursday night in the Hub! We’re partnering with all your favourite SAMRU Clubs to make sure that all our events are top notch entertainment for the Mount Royal student community. So grab a friend, come on down, and get your weekend off to an early start with DJ joeoui, who will be bringing the beats every Thursday night.
