With midterms wrapping up, most of us are finally deciding how we are going to spend Spring Break. If you’re one of the hundreds of college kids who are too broke to go to the beach and plan to bum around Denton next week, here are a few ideas to get you out of your apartment and away from Netflix.
Pioneer Softball Game: On Sunday March 12 from 1-6 p.m., the TWU Pioneer softball team will play in a double header against Midwestern State University. Go cheer on the Pioneers at Pioneer Field. Price is $3 for seniors and non-TWU students, $5 for adults, and free for children, TWU staff, faculty and students.
Stage Kiss: Catch a performance of the UNT Department of Dance and Theatre’s production of “Stage Kiss” on March 12 at 2 p.m. Written by Sarah Ruhl, this play follows two actors with a history that are both cast as the romantic leads in a melodrama.
