Beating Lehigh is the focus of several events this weekend, starting with a pep rally this evening at the Farinon Center.

Free food will be served at 6 p.m., with the rally scheduled for 6:30-7:30 p.m. It will include a performance by the female a cappella group Cadence, music, prizes and giveaways, and appearances by Lafayette President Arthur J. Rothkopf ’55 and football head coach Frank Tavani. The event is expected to take about an hour.

Students are encouraged to wear Lafayette apparel throughout the day.

The men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams will take on Lehigh 7 p.m. today in Ruef Natatorium, Kirby Sports Center.

The theme of beating Lehigh continues with the ice hockey team’s game against the Engineers at 7:45 p.m. tonight. Buses taking fans to the game will leave at 6:15 p.m.

Those not attending either game, or who are seeking entertainment when they return, can see screenings of the college classic Animal House, starring the late John Belushi, 7 and 10 p.m. today. The film also will be shown 7 and 10 p.m. tomorrow and 10 p.m. next Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday in Limburg Theater, Farinon College Center. Sponsored by Lafayette Activities Forum, admission for the movie is $2 with Lafayette ID.

Another option is the tenth annual Fringe festival, which will have its last performances 8 p.m. this evening in the black box theater of the Williams Center for the Arts. Students, faculty, and alumni will present original plays, performance art, music, and poetry.

In anticipation of the Lafayette-Lehigh football game Saturday afternoon, Lafayette Activities Forum is planning a late night breakfast at the upstairs Farinon Center dining hall 12:45 a.m. tonight (Saturday morning). The $7 cost can be paid with flex.

Those enjoying breakfast are encouraged to remain for a concert by the Irish rock band Stand, which will perform pop covers and original tunes 1-3 a.m. in the Farinon Center atrium.

The 138th meeting of college football’s most-played rivalry, Lafayette versus Lehigh, will take place 12:30 p.m. Saturday at Fisher Field.
