Winter festival Jan. 17-22
Bundle up for winter fun -- this year's Kuviasungnerk festival, the University's weeklong celebration of winter, will be held from Monday, Jan. 17, through Saturday, Jan. 22. In addition to the traditional outdoor activities, this year's festival will include a party and a concert by Chicago blues legend Buddy Guy.
A free breakfast of coffee and donuts will be offered on the Main Quadrangle each weekday morning during the festival. Weekday mornings will also feature kangeiko (calisthenics) at 6:30 a.m. at Henry Crown Field House -- except Thursday, Jan. 20, when the early-morning workout will begin with a 6:30 a.m. jog from Woodward Court to the Point for kangeiko on the lake shore and a salute to the sun. For individuals who would rather exercise their creativity, ice sculpting will take place on the Main Quadrangle from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 18, through Thursday, Jan. 20. Blocks of ice and tools will be available.
The revelry will move indoors at the end of the week. A party is planned for 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 21, in Ida Noyes Hall, and the festival will close with a blues concert by Buddy Guy at 9 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 22. The concert is sponsored by the Major Activities Board.
The Council on University Programming is sponsoring all other Kuviasungnerk activities, including study breaks at 9:30 p.m. on Monday through Thursday of the week of Kuviasungnerk. Monday, Wednesday and Thursday breaks will be held in the north lounge of Reynolds Club; Tuesday's study break will be held in the library of Ida Noyes Hall.
