Fun With Little Sun

BY MATTHEW GLEASON // NOV. 19, 2013 //

As the air gets colder and daylight gets shorter, it becomes a bit more challenging to find decent social activities.

One option is right here on campus. The winter sports season is underway, and game attendance is free for Curry students. The men’s basketball team is coming off a TCCC championship and an NCAA Division III tournament appearance, so Curry fans will likely get plenty rowdy as they seek a repeat. For a small Division III school, both the men’s and women’s basketball games are a good time, with lots of people usually in the stands showing school spirit.

Curry's A.J. Stephens battles Gordon senior Jordan Kelly for position down low. Stephens led Curry in rebounding this season, with 10 per game.

The men’s team, which got crushed by Brandeis University in its season-opener Nov. 16, 111-59, hosts WPI tonight (Nov. 19) at 7 and MIT on Saturday, Nov. 23 at 1 p.m.

The women’s basketball team, which is off to a 2-2 start this season, is back home on Monday, Dec. 2 to face Suffolk University at 7 p.m.

Another way to stay busy this winter is to attend Curry hockey games. The Colonels (2-3 as of Nov. 19) play off campus, at the nearby Ulin Rink in Milton. The college provides students with shuttle service to and from the games, and there’s plenty of parking at the rink for those who want to drive themselves. The hockey team usually has a pretty strong following and the action is fast and good. The Colonels are back home on Thursday, Dec. 5 at 6:40 p.m., taking on UMass-Dartmouth.

If you are not into sports, there is no reason to freak out. The Students Activities office has some pretty cool trips planned for this winter, including discounted tickets to the New England Aquarium and the Museum of Science.  When you buy the tickets through Curry, you will save $10 off the general admission price to each of these places.

This is just a sample of the activities that Curry has to offer as the winter months come upon us.
