Lecture and Performance Series
The College's Cultural Affairs Committee plans an annual Lecture
and Performance Series on the A.P. White Campus in Columbia.
Performances are designed to expose students to a variety of
writers, thinkers, actors, and musicians. These events are
part of the educational experience at the college and students are
encouraged to attend. Events are free and open to the wider
community. Recent speakers have included Kentucky authors Ed
McClanahan and Crystal Wilkinson, and vocal and instrumental
musical performances have featured bluegrass, classical music, and
Lucretia C. Begley Gallery
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.
Other Cultural Events
Student Services present a number of lectures and interactive
cultural events each semester on a changing schedule. The
Student Activities office in the Cralle 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.
