This year, Slivka’s formal was at the Arlington Heights Ballroom. With delicious food and lots of dancing, everyone had tons of fun! For more pictures and a video, please visit the photographer’s website (click “read more” for link).
Starting May 15th, Wednesday night, Slivka began to guard the rock. After more than 24 hours of guarding, we painted it Thursday night (well, Friday at midnight). The front said “go Slivka!” in silver and white, and the rest was blue. The side said “so this is outside?” Each Slivkan that painted the rock then signed their name on the bench.
On May 9th, several Slivkans engaged in a mafia murder mystery, led by Citizen Dane.
April 21st was a beautiful sunny day in the Chicagoland area, and about twenty Slivkans took a trip to Skokie Sports Park and enjoyed some mini golf. Though the golf was mini, the fun was not.
Slivkans had a blast at N9ne Steakhouse at the biggest event of the year – Slivka Formal.
Suggestion for freshmen watching this for the first time:
- Turn on “Show Annotations” to display labels of all the rooms. This video was meant to be a tour of our dorm!
- What’s up with those swords? Well, for the past two years we have had Foam Sword making events where you craft and decorate a PVC pipe wrapped in foam and covered in duct tape. It is a great way to resolve suite debates, train for the imminent zombie apocalypse, and ambush our president without wounding him.
We went to Dave and Busters and beasted ALL THE GAMES winning awesome prizes such as a gladiator Patrick and giant kickball!
Freshmen and upperclassmen alike gathered in the quad behind Slivka for the first munchies event of the year: S’mores!
Slivkans gathered in the Rec Lounge to play Rock Band and Guitar Hero into the early hours of the morning.
