Today is Nanook Tradition’s winter carnival! While not usually as exciting as Starvation Gulch or case day/Spring Fest, it’s still a fun seasonal UAF event sort of thing. One of the Winter Carnival events is a “cozy movie night” showing of the recent movie “The Edge of Seventeen,” which honestly based on my gut instincts and from the previews it looks like it could be an actually pretty decent/cute teen movie (but I could be wrong, it could be terrible, you don’t have to trust me). The showing is at the Hess Rec Center at 9 p.m. Hot cocoa and cider will be served, and you’re encouraged to bring comfy blankets and pillows. – Molly Putman / Layout Editor

Since I am strictly forbidden from encouraging our readers to attend our weekly freelancer meeting at 1 p.m. in Constitution Hall room 305, I’m going to instead suggest that you bring pizza to Constitution Hall room 305 around, say, 5 p.m. No reason. – Spencer Tordoff / Editor-in-Chief

Have you ever wanted to stuff a bear? Not in a creepy taxidermist from a horror movie way, but cute, plush sort of way? The Student Activities Office is letting folks in Wood Center stuff their own teddy bears from 1-2 p.m. I try not to collect stuffed animals because I already have at least one box of childhood plushies in my garage and don’t need to fill another. But, given it’s a tiny Nanook, I might stop by in a burst of school spirit. – Kyrie Long / Copy Editor
