One Heck of a Caribash

From Caribbean Jeopardy to Holi/Jouvert to the fashion show and Rep Yuh Flag party, Students of Caribbean Awareness (SOCA) is filling your week with a whole lot of spice as part of their annual Caribash Week in PLV!

The most anticipated week of the semester. What is Caribash Week? That is correct and it kicks off on Monday, April 9, with Caribbean Jeopardy from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. in the Gottesman Room. Free food and prizes!

April 10 is Thirsty Tuesday, so stop by the Setters Lounge from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. for mocktails and guest speakers.

On Wednesday, April 11, enjoy some delicious Caribbean cuisine and hear from speakers who started out at the bottom and rose through the ranks to become successful in their careers as SOCA hosts the Rise to the Top Dinner from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. in Willcox Gym.  

On Thursday, April 12, paint the town red, blue, green, and any other color you want at
SOCA’s Holi/Jouvert event from 9:00 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. in the parking lot by the football field. Spend your night throwing colored powder, paints, and water balloons at this huge celebration of colors. Wear all white and don’t plan on wearing these clothes again…well, until next year’s big event!

Friday the 13th may be considered bad luck, but for SOCA, it’s the party of the year. First, start of the night with their 2012 What You See, Is What You Get Fashion Show:
The Trend, featuring the latest and greatest Caribbean fashions. Doors open at 5:00 p.m. and the show starts at 6:00 p.m. in the Willcox Gym. The event will feature music by WPAW and costs $3 for students, $7 for alumni, and $12 for guests. All proceeds will go to the DJ Henry Fund.  Then, from 10:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m., SOCA hosts the Rep Yuh Flag after party featuring music by DJ Ink. The party is free for Pace students with a valid ID and $5 for outside guests and alumni. Register here to attend these events.

Finally, on April 15, Caribash week comes to an end with the I Am Blessed church service and brunch from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. in Gottesman Room.
