Free summer events

Exciting performances, thought-provoking lectures

The School of Continuing Education and Summer Sessions invites you to continue your education in one of the most enjoyable ways possible—by attending our free summer events series! We offer concerts and lectures at no charge to encourage you to take a chance and experience something new or listen to music you may never have heard, all while visiting our gorgeous campus.

See the Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday pages for a list of past events.
