Community outreach and service has long been part of the college mission. One way the college fulfills this mission is to present concerts, plays, lectures, festivals and other events and make them open to community members. This collection contains materials pertaining to such events.
Items in this collection include the following:
College events have often been sponsored by college committees and student organizations. In many cases they have been sponsored by multiple groups. Events sponsored by SGA alone have been filed with SGA materials. Flyers and programs may list these sponsorships.
It is important to note that folder contents are not comprehensive (i.e. they do not contain flyers, programs or other materials that reflect all of the community events held at the college or under the sponsorship of the college.) Materials may be added as they come to light.
