Recruiting Trends in Accounting 101
3:30 p.m.–5:00 p.m. | Student Union

Finding Neverland
7:30 p.m. | Meet at Welcome Desk, One Pace Plaza
One of the most popular plays on Broadway, Finding Neverland is about a playwright and his relationship with the family who inspired him to write a little play called Peter Pan.

Luna Park Coney Island
12:00 p.m. | Meet at Welcome Desk, One Pace Plaza

Tuesday, September 29

Battle of the Chefs
11:00a.m.–2:00 p.m. | Student Union
Battles can sometime be gruesome, ugly, and an overall drain on society. But when chefs battle, it’s pretty much the opposite—especially for those of us who get to eat the delectable “collateral damage.”
