But, as the sun starts to set earlier each night and the temperature slowly drops, it’s time to get focused on school. But hey, that doesn’t mean we students can’t have our fun too!

Sweet Sixteen

Our Golden Eagles shocked everyone with their 66-62 upset over Syracuse last night. As the game clock ran down, you could hear the screams of nervousness and excitement resonating throughout the residence halls.  I think I speak for all of Marquette’s campus when I say it was the perfect way to end spring break. As I was walking through campus this morning, there was a definite feeling of excitement in the air thanks to last night’s victory. Everyone here has one thing on his or her mind…FRIDAY! And no, I don’t mean that song by Rebecca Black, I mean game day for Marquette!

Looking ahead to Friday, Marquette will have to come out ready to play against UNC. It’ll be a tough match-up, but if they could upset #2 Syracuse, why can’t they upset #2 UNC? Our offense has proved time and time again that they can win a game, but our defense will have to be on top of its game against UNC’s star forwards Zeller, Henson, and Barnes. Luckily for Marquette, UNC’s defense isn’t the best either, and struggles to contain outside shooters, which Marquette has plenty of.

Looking for a place to catch the game this Friday? There are several great restaurants in the Marquette and Milwaukee area with plenty of TVs to catch all the NCAA action. If you want somewhere close to campus, head on over to the Union Sports Annex, located right on Wells and 16th. They have a great menu and personal TVs in all their booths, so you won’t miss a single second of the game. The Annex is a great choice to catch the game considering they are right here on our campus! There’s bound to be a sea of gold there on Friday night. Another great place with a relaxed atmosphere is Buffalo Wild Wings, located on Water Street. Their wings are great, and with several TVs visible from every table, you can keep track of all the scores. One of my favorite places to go is Riverfront Pizzeria Bar and Grill, located on East Erie Street in the 3rd Ward. Their menu offers a wide variety of options, including their delicious pizzas and grilled-to-perfection paninis. Finally, Major Goolsby’s, located on Kilbourn Ave across from the Bradley Center, is a hot spot in the city for Marquette fans. These are just a few of the many different places in Milwaukee that will be showing the game, so venture out into the city and see everything it has to offer!

RING OUT AHOYA!

Late Night Swinging!

Cobeen Hall’s 5th Annual “Freezin’ for a Reason” Swing-A-Thon began this morning at 9AM! Established in 2007, this event invites Cobeen Hall residents to join together in an effort to raise awareness of eating disorders and to generate donations for the Eating Disorders Center at Rogers Memorial Hospital in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. This center serves a variety of patients, but has a unique connection the Marquette community through its treatment of students facing eating disorders. 

Students will be swinging for 36.5 consecutive hours (from 9AM on Monday to 9:30PM on Tuesday) to represent loving your bodies 365 days a year for Marquette’s Love Your Body Week. Now that is a Late Night program if we ever heard of one! Feel free to stop by and make a donation - any amount helps! Last year, Cobeen Hall raised over $2,000 to be donated directly to Rogers Memorial Hospital.
