Upcoming university events for the week of 9/8 to 9/11.

Welcome back to campus Wolf Pack. As students start of this spring semester strong, there is hope that we can all enjoy in person events in this season. The Performing Arts series hosted by the School of the Arts is counting on having in-person events this spring. The first of these performances features Goitse, an award-winning Irish quartet that mixes their original compositions with classic Irish jigs. After Goitse’s February performance, Sweet Honey in the Rock will perform in March, followed by Michael Mayo in April. As for this week, lets enjoy the start of the spring semester with some snow, and this weeks’ upcoming events which include mental health, art, and entrepreneurship.
