Thursday: HIGH School


9 p.m.

$3 with student ID

Screenwriter and Notre Dame alumnae Stephen Susco (’95) will be present at DPAC’s 9 p.m. screening  of her film “HIGH School.” This stoner comedy follows the attempts of an all-A student to get the entire student body to test positive for drug use in order to cover up his own first foray into illegal substances. Tickets are $3 for students.

Friday: “A Night of One Acts”

LaFortune Ballroom

8:30 and 10 p.m.


If you have a short attention span and cannot sit through a full-length play, why not just try a fraction of a play? As part of Notre Dame’s Fortnight Productions, “A Night of One Acts” presents a collection of three one-act plays, each with its own student director, cast and plot. Free tickets are available in the Ballroom before the show.

Saturday: ‘Despicable Me’

Debartolo 101

8 and 10:30 p.m.


After standing for four hours at the final football game, relax by watching the SUB movie, “Despicable Me.” This charming animated comedy’s protagonist is, oddly, a villain. The film tells the journey of the evil man as he starts to be affected by the love he sees between three orphan girls that he originally was using for his evil master plan.

Sunday: ND Concert Bands


3 p.m.


Wind down the weekend with some culture by attending the Notre Dame Symphonic Winds and Symphonic Band fall concert. The concert bands have toured internationally and domestically, and this concert in particular is part of their preparations for their year-end performance in Cleveland.
