Geek Til’ Dawn 20: Generations

Nov 01, 2017Posted by Sydney Nakamura

The end of fall quarter is creeping upon us, and that means it’s time for DeFrag’s bi-annual Geek Til’ Dawn event! The one event we’ve all been waiting for! This time around the theme is Generations, in celebration and honor of DeFrag’s past, present, and future.

Check in for this event will begin at 6PM in the CDM lobby. Be sure to get there and check in by 11PM, as that’s when the building closes. Also, be sure to stop by 924 at 8:30PM for announcements.

This year’s big raffle prize is a SNES Classic! The tournaments this year will consist of games such as Pokémon and Overwatch! We are also having a movie room that will screen various different animes. As per usual, we will have board games all night in 924, as well as video games in the game lab, pizza during the night, and Dunkin Donuts in the morning!

Be sure to stop by 924 by or before midnight as that is when we will do the raffle drawing!

We will also be selling Geek Til’ Dawn posters for this event in 924 throughout most of the night. So feel free to stop by and buy one!

The (tentative) schedule of events is as follows (more events and details to be added soon):

Registration: 6:00PM-11:59PM

Pokémon Tournament: 6:00PM-12:00AM

There will also be a PowerPoint with this schedule in 924 with room information too.

Please keep in mind this is an overnight event, so we have a few additional rules that must be followed as a result.

1. Registration is required. All students must either register at the event or preferably beforehand on OrgSync.

2. Non-DePaul guests are allowed, but only one per student. Guests must also be registered at the main lobby table and must remain with the person who registered them at all times.

3. Everyone must wear the wristbands provided at registration. On the day of the event at the registration desk, each student and guest will be given a color wristband that must remain on them at all times during the event.

4. All students and guests must remain on the 9th, 7th, 5th and 2nd floors. All other floors are strictly off-limits after the building closes at 11.

If anyone is caught in violation of these rules they will be removed from the building. As long as everyone follows these simple rules though, we shouldn’t have any problems!

Hope to see you all there on November 10th!

DeFrag Masters

Oct 05, 2017Posted by Sydney Nakamura

Come on down to CDM 924 for a night of competition and gaming!

We will be holding our DeFrag Masters event starting at 6PM (similar to Pokémon Masters if you’re familiar with that). Challenge the board members of DeFrag and see if you have what it takes to beat them at their self-proclaimed best (or favorite) game, while also competing with other general DeFrag members for all the pride and glory. Rack up stars as you go around to each game and successfully defeat each DeFrag master, and come out on top as The One True Holy DeFrag Member. We will bow down in your presence.

Hope to see you there!

 

DeFrag Presents: A Trip In Time

Sep 21, 2017Posted by Sydney Nakamura

Our first event of the school year went over smoothly and everyone seemed to have a good time! Thanks to those folks who came out to it!

We hope to see returning and maybe even some new faces for our second event.

In the confines of CDM, through the labyrinth like halls of its most deepest, darkest basement lied a dusty old machine whose technology was unknown of to this world. Discovered by the members of DeFRAG it was determined that this piece of technology was in fact a Time Machine. Though still humming with power, they made note of its fading crystal powering the machine. It appears there would be only one more use before this machine would be no more… That night they all agreed they would need to make this last charge count, whether it be them going back in time to stop a chatastrophic event, learning of an ancient mystery of the world once believed to be lost, or even save the world from doom. As such, it was decided what its last use would be put for.

To play video games from our childhood.

Come on down to CDM 924 from 6PM to 9PM and enjoy a night of playing the games of our childhoods some of which include: Crash Team Racing, Halo 3, and much more!

There WILL be an after party, more details at the event.

Hope you can make it in time!
