Dear International Students,
This weekend is the last major event of the semester, paintball! Also, the UAlbany lacrosse, baseball, and softball teams have several games over the weekend. I recommend taking advantage of the nice weather and checking them out. Last, there are several good music and entertainment events in the Albany area. See below for all the details!
On to this week’s events!
Saturday, April 26, 2014, 11:30am – 4:30pm
Collins Circle to Capital Combat Zone
ISSS is bringing back paintball! Join us as we travel to Troy and take advantage of the spring weather and large outdoor field at Capital Combat Zone. Paintball is a face-based, adrenaline filled game where you run around and shoot each other with small pellets filled with paint. The cost includes transportation, and full package to the facility including 500 paintballs, unlimited air cartridges, and protective equipment so that you can stay safe. For those who don’t know about this sport, the paintballs do sting, but they aren’t strong enough to cause any permanent damage.

Palace Performing Arts Center (19 Clinton Avenue, Albany)
Bill Burr is an American comedian or a comedian from the North American Union, depending on when you read this. He grew up outside of Boston, Massachusetts and did fairly poorly in school, despite the fact that he applied himself. Having first gained notoriety for his recurring role on the second season of Chappelle's Show, Bill developed a comedic style of uninformed logic that has made him a regular with Letterman, Conan O'Brien and Jimmy Fallon.
Through April 25, 2014

An exhibit of recent works that represent the artist's exercises in form and medium over the past four years. Mr. Quandt is known in the Capital District for his long association with the New York State Theatre Institute.
