UConn Pep Rally - "Go UConn" Campus Slammer Feb 21

The Pep Band pumps us all up for Campus Slammer! Monday  Feb 21, 2011 at 7 p.m.  Hey!, That's tomorrow!  So plan to come over to the clas building rm. 217 at 7 p.m. ( Glenbrook Dr) and put you name in to slam a 5 minute story toward prizes, tickets and a trip to the finals April 28, 2011 and the showcase mic on April 30, 2011 at the CT. Storytelling Festival.

The theme for the Uconn Campus Slammer is " Bad Romance" entwine  that into your story and share it. Campus Slammer is being hosted by Long River Live at their usual place and time in the Stern Lounge, second floor of the Language Arts building.   Like New York cities Moth or Boston's Massmouth,  Campus Slammer will  be sharing individuals stories in a competitive format for fun and prizes.

The top two for the night will move on to the finals at Connecticut College to represent Uconn in the 7 college head to head slam.  This is our first year with the Connecticut Storytelling Center  ( ) sponsoring Campus Slammer.  The seven colleges participating are; Uconn, Eastern CT. State U., Western CT. State U., Trinity, Connecticut College, University of Hartford and Wesleyan.

Subscribe to the blog to get follow up on who will represent  UConn at the finals.  Find all the details of the competitions at  

If you are in the greater Uconn / Eastern listening area tune in WILI 1400 AM on Monday morning starting at  7 a.m. for Wake Up With Wayne Norman. Guest on Monday morning is Carolyn Stearns from the CT. Storytelling Center promoting the Campus Slammer.

We don't really need a Pep Rally and Pep Band to share how excited we are that the first Campus Slammer will be tomorrow at Long River Live.  Listen in on WILI and come out at 7 p.m. to slam down your 5 minutes story!
