Tuesday, Oct. 1, 11:45 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.: Birthday Shout Out
Have a birthday in October? Sign up at the Student Center information desk before Oct. 1 for a chance to win a $25 Grub Bucks card that can be used to purchase food and drinks in the Hilltop Grill or the Valley Eatery. We’ll read off the names of everyone celebrating an October birthday at noon, have cupcakes, sing “Happy Birthday,” and draw one lucky winner for the Grub Bucks card.

Monday, Oct. 7, 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.: Foosball Tournament
Teams of two can sign up at the Student Center information desk for their chance to win $20 in HCC Grub Bucks and bragging rights as Campus Kings of the Foosball Table! The first eight teams to register get to play, so stop by today.
