ON CAMPUS: FALL FROLIC, SHOFAR BLOWING,
On Friday, Sept. 10, students will have an ideal opportunity to investigate campus clubs and organizations at Fall Frolic, the annual student-organizations expo. A local radio station will be spinning tunes to accompany a picnic dinner, craft activities, novelty performers and vendors of jewelry and clothing. The services of an artist who draws personalized greeting cards will be available to students free of charge.
Fall Frolic "is a convenient and fun way for student leaders to introduce themselves and their organizations, recruit members, and get the campus excited about upcoming events," says Student Activities Coordinator Mary Beth Horvath.
Organizations that want to participate in Fall Frolic must register with the Student Activities Office. Horvath stresses that organizations must register anew each year, even if the information on last year's form is still correct. To guarantee a table, groups must register by tomorrow, Sept. 3.

HILLEL MEMBERS GO FOR THE SHOFAR
The Bryn Mawr College Campus Hillel, weather permitting, will have its annual shofar blowing in front of the Campus Center tomorrow, Friday, Sept. 3, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m., reports the Spanish Department's Peter Brampton Koelle.
The shofar is a Jewish ritual instrument crafted from the horn of a ram, Koelle explains. It is sounded every day except Shabbat during the current Jewish month of Elul, the month before Rosh Ha-Shanah, which marks the beginning of the Jewish New Year. Koelle invites all members of the campus community to "stop, relax, play a shofar or just listen. Anyone who has a shofar is encouraged to bring one."
