Historic Chenango Canal

This week’s event highlights finish with a 5K and Fun Run along the historic Chenango Canal towpath trail.

As we head into the last week of classes and students prepare for finals, some of this week’s events can offer a little break.

This afternoon, the university jazz ensemble will be joined by Glenn Cashman and guest artist Gary Smulyan for a performance at the Palace Theater 3:30 p.m.–5:30 p.m. Admission is free.

You Only Live Once: the Newman Lunch Series on Monday at 12:15 asks “What Will You Do With Your One Life?” Join the discussion in the Chapel basement and enjoy catering by Rio Grande.

On Tuesday, the Peace and Conflict Studies Program’s guest lecture will feature Rashid Nur, ambassador to Somaliland. Nur will speak 4:30–5:30 in Persson Hall Auditorium.

The Trivia Night tradition continues on Wednesday night at the Colgate Inn, starting at 8 p.m. Grab a group of friends and test your knowledge in a different way.

Celebrate the last day of classes on Friday with a County Fair on the Quad. Look for the red-and-white striped tent near the chapel, and get ready to play carnival games with amazing prizes, enjoy grilled deliciousness, and square dance! Games and food will begin at 8 p.m., while music and dancing will begin at 9 p.m.

Kick off your weekend with the historic Chenango Canal Towpath Trail 5K and Fun Run on Saturday, May 2. Meet at the Hamilton Airport and enjoy the beautiful scenic route around Hamilton Airport and Woodman Pond. Pets are welcome!
