Campus update for May 8, 2020
May 8, 2020
As COVID-19 continues, we've all seen that public health work and expertise is of the utmost importance.
No one is watching events unfold more closely than our public health majors (you could be one!), faculty and alumni in the field.
They see a need for improvement, and an opportunity.
Playwrights Festival this Saturday!
Each year we host the Quad City Playwrights Festival to showcase work by high school, college, and community members. This year's fest begins at 7 p.m. Saturday.
The featured playwrights are Dan Haughey, Don Faust, Matt Berry, Jacob French and Jimmy Sederquist. Students will read their scripts and there will be a Q&A.
Join the Zoom Meeting using ID 864 5265 2201 and password: 195928.
