Arts & Lecture
The College's Cultural Affairs Committee coordinates an annual
Arts and Lectures Series for the A.P. White Campus in
Columbia. Authors, scholars, and musicians are invited to
campus to speak or perform, allowing students to engage with a
variety of writers, thinkers, performers, and musicians. Each
year a writer or scholar from the Woodrow Wilson Fellows program
spends a week in residency, meeting with classes, students, and
faculty. Events also include performances by the College
theatre program as well as by the College choral and instrumental
ensembles. Events in the Arts and Lecture series are an
important part of the educational experience at the College, and
students are encouraged to attend.
Lucretia C. Begley
An important extension of campus life and the community, the
Lucretia C. Begley Gallery hosts exhibitions by artists working in
a wide range of media and subjects. In addition to fostering
greater appreciation for the visual arts and exemplifying working
practices of artists, a primary function of the gallery is to
feature exhibitions of Art Major Seminar students, required of art
majors before they graduate. The gallery is located in the
W.W. Slider Humanities Center.
Student Services present a number of lectures and interactive
cultural events each semester on a changing schedule. The
Student Activities office in the Cralle Student Union Building
(SUB) may be contacted for the schedule of events.
The Academic Affairs office plans Academic Celebrations near the
end of the fall and spring terms where students are invited to
present their research and service learning projects in poster
sessions and short presentations. The events are open to
College and community members.
The Lindsey Players, the LWC Band, and choral groups present a
variety of plays and concerts each semester. Recitals
by instrumental and vocal students are also open to the public.
