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. 

CLA Exterior Fall
College of Liberal Arts in the Fall

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.
