University Center presents fun in person and online in 2021

The spring semester is upon us, and although it seems like a repeat of the previous one, that does not mean that there are not yet any fun or special events that are planning college. That's especially true for the James R. Connor University Center, where much of the university's entertainment can be found.
"We pretty much have specials every week," said Warhawk Alley lead coordinator Ryan Frencel. "One of the things we most want students and others to know about is the special offer for all access points."

The special of All access points earn students four points on their Hawkcard that can be used for a free game of bowling, shoe rental, and 1 hour of pool, with one point for each.
UC Entertainment will continue to host online events for the campus, as well as begin hosting virtual events via YouTube for the first time. The first set of virtual events of the semester will be part of WinterFest.

"From now on, all UC Entertainment events will be virtual," said entertainment assistant Jacob Bailey. "It's likely to stay that way unless something changes."
However, for those who wish to see a movie in person, the Summers Auditorium continues to present movies in person and also online, with a $ 1 admission for those with a Hawkcard ID and $ 3 for those without. .
"I think the movie 'Freaky' sets the right tone for our movie show," Bailey said. "Now we also have new screenings on Fridays and Saturdays, so we are very excited."

The Roberta Art Gallery will also host many new virtual exhibits and workshops this semester for the campus to enjoy.

"There are many virtual opportunities this semester, but it varies." said Tonia Kapitan, who works in UC information services and is the coordinator for Warhawk Alley. Talking about Roberta's Art Gallery, Kapitan also mentioned that while most of the exhibits are virtual, the art gallery itself is free to enter and explore each week.

“If you want to come and do something in person, that's an option,” Kapitan said. For those looking for a bit of outdoor activities or creativity this semester, the Roberta Art Gallery is also hosting a "Warhawk Winter Digital Photography Contest" that you can enter by going online February 1-19. . So if you are looking to get a more artistic experience of your time here at the university, you can get more information about their events and what is happening on the art gallery website .
