CWRU's Habitat for Humanity has really gotten creative in their attempt to raise awareness about homelessness. The organization, as well as others participating, will be "shacking up," by building cardboard boxes and camping out on the KSL Oval this weekend. It's good to know that this philanthropic organization is not solely focusing on fundraising, but also spreading the word about one of the most prevalent and devastating issues in our world today. Note: The weather is predicted to be lovely. Time: Fri. 8:30 p.m. to Sat. 9:30 a.m. Cost: Free. Location: KSL Oval .Info:

With the help of several student groups, we are often able to experience a variety of cultures right here on campus. The Indian Students Association is inviting the Case, and Cleveland community to Navratri Garba 2009, a night of cultural infusion complete with food and traditional Indian dancing to garba and raas music. If you are unfamiliar with these dance forms, don't fret because there'll be workshops held throughout the night. Time: 8:30 p.m. Cost: Free. Location: Adelbert Gym. Info:

This Sunday, the award-winning Cavani String Quartet will be performing a Beethoven quartet at CIM. This will be the first performance of a series of six concerts. Each concert will feature Beethoven pieces, and according to critics and listeners, this quartet will do them justice. While the event is free, seating passes are required. Time: 4 p.m. Cost: Free. Location: CIM, Mixon Hall. Info:

Twice annually, toward the end of each semester, a sudden rush of a cappella concerts comes to campus, as the school's many ensembles, having spent the semester working on their tunes, showcase their talents at different venues. It isn't terribly often that one can find several groups at one spot, and Thursday night's sixth annual A Cappella for Africa concert, sponsored by the Global Medical Initiative, is one of those opportunities to see what the singers of CWRU have to offer. Mainstays Speakeasy and Case in Point are among the groups performing. Time: 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Cost: Free, but donations are strongly encouraged. Location: The Spot.
