Events

Through regular annual events, as well as through special programs and talks, the College of Liberal Arts provides opportunities for students to engage with a range of speakers and experiences that both enhance and extend the work of courses. Students are encouraged to choose some of these programs each semester to engage a public issue, to expand their knowledge of the world and its complexities, to learn something of another culture, or perhaps to enjoy an excellent film with a vision distinct from their own. All members of the campus community, alumni, and the public are welcome at nearly all CLA events without charge.
