Liberal Arts in Your Living Room

The College of Liberal Arts hasn’t stopped providing exceptional experiences for the community during this unprecedented experience. We’ve transitioned to an online venue and are continuing to offer what we do best in the arts, humanities and social sciences. We’ve put together a number of performances, lectures and activities for you to enjoy from the comfort of your living room. Together, we’re elevating humanity.
