Student governments prepare Violet 100 week

Violet 100, NYU’s spirit week, kicks off on March 3 with the All-University Games and will finish on March 9 with a brunch for 1831 Fund donors in Lipton Hall.

For the first time, Violet 100 will feature a concert at the Highline on March 4. The performers are singer and Tisch junior Kiah Victoria and musical acts Marnie Stern and Deerhunter.

CAS senior and president of the Program Board Jacqueline Goldberg said the concert was organized by the Program Board and the Student Senators Council. Goldberg said Mariam Ehrari, CAS senior and SSC chair, approached her about creating a concert for the week, which was then overseen by Steinhardt senior Caroline Valdes and Gallatin senior Sara Intrator.

“We decided it was an experience that the NYU community should really get to have,” Goldberg said. “Right now we’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback about the event and are expecting a tremendous turnout next Tuesday.”

The All-University Games include basketball, volleyball, table tennis, foosball, tug-of-war, rock-paper-scissors, dodgeball and spirit competitions held between teams from different schools, as well as administration and faculty teams.

GLS sophomore and Liberal Studies senator Anushua Choudhury said students, staff, administration and alumni are encouraged to participate.

“This year we have about 22 teams, [both] undergrad and grad, and this includes a team of NYU Abu Dhabi students too,” Choudhury said. “Anyone interested should reach out to their school’s student council.”

Steinhardt senior class president and Games captain Brittany Holloway said student participation is built through Steinhardt’s undergraduate general assembly meetings, emails from the Undergraduate Student Government and by word of mouth.

“Steinhardt has been placing a larger emphasis on getting students excited for the specific sport or sports in which they will be participating,” Holloway said. “Through the assignment of team coordinators for each sport and a special invite-only dinner for Steinhardt students on the All-U roster, we are working toward building enthusiasm for the games at the team level.”

Stern freshman Paolo Cipriano said he is looking forward to joining in the Games and leading Stern to victory.

“It’s a time for all students to compete in fun events, to create new friendships and to experience the culture outside of their respective schools,” Cipriano said, adding that the involvement of graduate schools, including the law school, is exciting.
