5 things to do! February 15-18

A weekly roundup of weekend events on campus and around town.

While Lesley alumna Jamie Greubel Poser's race for gold in the bobsled event isn't until next week, sports like curling have piqued our interest and you can try it for yourself this weekend! There's plenty going on so be sure to catch basketball, see spoken word artist Dominique Christina perform, visit Sherrill Library for a new exhibit and more.
