If you’re in the mood for dancing and snacking, visit the Rutgers Salsa Club’s ugly sweater party at 9 p.m. in the College Avenue gym annex. The group’s final practice of the semester includes a prize for the person who wears the most mind-numbingly ugly holiday sweater.

Here’s a chance to learn how to stay productive over holiday break—and, if you’re so inclined, smoosh a pie against someone’s face. The RU chapter of the Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda is hosting a discussion at 9:50 p.m. in Tillett Hall, room 242, about how to stay busy through work, research and travel. The group will serve snacks, and attendees can pay to pie a board member.

Catch some tunes at the university choir’s fall 2016 concert, which will be held at 7:30 p.m. in the Kirkpatrick Chapel. This is the group’s first show under the leadership of Reid Masters, so be sure to see what he and his students have up their sleeves. Student tickets are $5, while seats for adults, alumni and RU employees cost $10. Adults must pay $15.

Those who are wound up after weeks of preparing for final exams might like this one.

(They’ll even have a mashed potato bar.)
Of course, you can always opt to sweat out your stress. Rutgers Recreation is holding a free “Twilight Yoga” session from 5-6 p.m. in the College Avenue gym. The class will even with guided meditation.
