You'll also be invited to key academic events in your student's career, such as the spring Honors and Awards ceremony and to talks and receptions in the area where you live. The campus is vibrant with lectures, discussions, concerts, athletic events, exhibits, and performances daily during the academic year. Most are free and open to the public. You are welcome to attend any of them. For a schedule, view the campus calendar at
