GSO Events

FUNDRAISER: Board and Brew

Video games, board games - close enough, right? The Board and Brew is a favorite among students, and now you can have a coffee and play board games while also supporting the GSO! The food there is pretty good too if coffee isn't your thing - it's just a great place to hang out, so come hang out and play games with GSO!

Show THIS FLYER when paying in order for your purchase to go toward GSO. Having a paper copy or showing it from your phone are both acceptable options.


If you like Chipotle and you like GSO, why not eat there and support us at the same time? Show up and support the GSO with 50% of the proceeds from your dinner going to the group!

Show THIS FLYER physically, digitally, or just by word of mouth when you go to pay to lend the GSO your support.

CHARITY: Gaming4Life

We're rebranding! Deathmatch for Chrarity is becoming Gaming4Life, while will hopefully now be happinging once per semester instead of once per year.

Our signature video game tournament to raise money for Children's National Hospital will return this November. We'll be hosting multiple tournaments (with prizes!) in addition to having plenty of video, board, and card games just for fun, plus snacks, so there should be something for everyone.

As always, feel free to donate as much as you like when you arrive! Like last semester, we will be charging admission for baseline coverage - all of which goes directly to Children's Hospital - $5 when you show up at the door. Also, contact us if you would be willing to let us borrow TVs/laptops/consoles/games!

RSVP to the Gaming4Life Facebook event to let us know you're coming! Keep an eye on the posts there for extra announcements, like related events or what tournaments will be held.

CONCERT: Fall 2017 small ensemble showcase

With a continued rise in students wishing to perform small ensembles on top of a record number of new full orchestra submissions, we've decided to try something new and have a concert just for small ensembles! Come to hear GSO members playing their favorite songs in a freeform, casual setting.

Everything you hear will have been rehearsed outside of regular rehearsals, so you know today's performers have put a bunch of hard work into exploring as much of video game music as they can!

This concert is entirely FREE and NO TICKETS are required - just show up and enjoy! We hope to see you there! (You can aslo RSVP to our Facebook event if you want.)

CONCERT: Fall 2017 full orchestra concert

Our regularly scheduled fall concert returns with a program packed with almost exclusively new pieces! Games/series we're covering for the first time include Runescape, Overwatch, and Bomberman!

As always, our concert is FREE but will require ticket reservations through the Clarice, which are NOW AVAILABLE on the Clarice's website. Click over here to reserve your (free!) tickets. Hope to see you there!

Feel free to RSVP to our official Facebook event as well, and watch this space for the link to the stream (which should be live shortly before the concert itself).
