A slight haze fills the air allowing you to see your laser beams, but beware because someone may be lurking in the hazy mist. Remember every man is for himself inside the Combat Zone so you have no friends. Your battle will last approximately 5 minutes so use your ammo wisely. Your enemies have declared war on you and three (or seven) of them will be involved in this battle. The attack can come from any enemy in any direction so watch your back. When your mission is complete you will receive a full colored score card so you can figure out which of your enemies did the most damage. Laserpalooza is the larger 40'x80' structure (was 40x40 last year). Its EVEN LARGER THAN LAST YEAR!!!

THIS IS A FREE NON TICKETED EVENT

12. Beyond the Classroom presents "Semper Fi: Always Faithful"

When: Tuesday, April 22, 2014 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Where: 1102 South Campus Commons, Building 1
Event Type(s): Movie/Film/Video

As a drill instructor Marine Corps Master Sgt. Jerry Ensminger lived and breathed the "Corps" and was responsible for indoctrinating thousands of new recruits with its motto Semper Fidelis or "Always Faithful." When Jerry's nine-year old daughter Janey died of a rare type of leukemia, his world collapsed. As a grief-stricken father, he struggled for years to make sense of what happened. His search for answers led to the shocking discovery of a Marine Corps cover-up of one of the largest water contamination incidents in U.S. history. Semper Fi: Always Faithful follows Jerry's mission to expose the Marine Corps and force them to live up to their motto to thousands of soldiers and their families exposed to toxic chemicals. His fight reveals a grave injustice at North Carolina's Camp Lejeune and a looming environmental crisis at military sites across the country.

14. Israeli Musics: Beyond Nationalist Signifiers, featuring Prof. Assaf Shelleg

When: Thursday, April 24, 2014 5:15 PM - 6:45 PM
Where: Clarice Smith PAC : Leah M. Smith Hall
Event Type(s): Lecture

Despite the proliferation of musical styles stemming from Israel's ethnic proximities, its histories have been punctuated by political dates or "representations." With nationalism as the main yardstick by which Israeli music is measured, narratives have consisted of responses to wars or other formulations whose easily identifiable musical citations rang the bells-and-whistles of the Zionist project. Examining the mechanism of Hebrew Culture in pre- and post-statehood years, Assaf Shelleg's talk will separate national rhetoric from processes of cultural hybridization so as to disclose cases in which music seeps across political and aesthetic borders to undermine both nationalist edifices as well as categories such as folk, popular, and art musics.

This event is cosponsored by the Gildenhorn Institute for Israel Studies and the School of Music

19. Beyond the Classroom presents "The Student Movement to Solve the Global Climate Crisis"

When: Monday, April 21, 2014 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Where: 1102 South Campus Commons, Building 1
Event Type(s): Seminar

To celebrate Earth Day, please join our panel discussion to understand the growing movement to solve the global climate change crisis! The panel will focus on the large youth-led environmental protest that led to the arrest of 398 students in March 2014 who were protesting the proposed Keystone XL Tar Sands Pipeline Project that would ship carbon-intensive oil from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico. In January 2012, President Obama rejected the permit for this 1,700 mile pipeline, but a final decision will be announced this summer. Throughout Maryland, students have mobilized to raise awareness and to mobilize citizen action against the proposed Cove Point Energy Project in Maryland. At the same time, students on a number of university campuses have mobilized support for divestment of all university endowment funds invested in fossil fuel companies. What strategies have students used to engage on this environmental issue? What are the lessons for the environmental movement?
