The annual Parents & Family Weekend is just around the corner! This year’s event runs Friday, October 12th through Sunday, October 14th.

Vanderbilt Programming Board is going to fill your Friday night full of fun, food and prizes on September 28. Between 7pm and 11pm, the Student Life Center will be transformed into a carnival, including games like pedestal jousting, skeeball, pinball, arcade games, wac-a-mole, and much more. What would a carnival be without food? VPB has that covered, with cotton candy, funnel cakes, snow cones, pizza, popcorn, nachos and McDougal’s. There will also be prizes, including a Kindle Fire, Wii gaming console, and Commodore Quake tickets, just to name a few.
For more information check out the VPB website.

Summer 2012 Hours of Operation:
(Hours are subject to change based on events)
It’s summertime and the livin’ is easy! With the last of exams wrapping up and students moving out, it is important to note the summer schedule taking effect at The Commons Center for the next few months.
The Commons Center will take on adjusted hours during the summer. Building hours of operation will vary from week to week, but look for most days to take a traditional 7 AM to 5 PM approach. Building hours will be posted on-site in two-week cycles.
The Commons Food Gallery will be open from 7 AM to 2 PM every day this summer due to the Rand renovation. Menu items can be found through the Vanderbilt Dining webpage.
Thank you so much for a great semester, students! Have a great summer, and good luck to the graduating class of 2012!
Exam time is upon us here at Vanderbilt, so we here at The Commons Center are trying to do everything in our power to assist you in your time of extreme studying.
All meeting spaces in The Commons Center are available for studying when no events are being held. This means that the Fireside Lounge, the MPR, the Towers Conference Room, and all other areas on the first two floors are open for business.
Additionally, look for special deals and study breaks, such as last night’s Chick-Fil-A surprise.
Finish out the year strong!
