Multicultural Programming Board events

MPB taxi

The MPB taxi is a free shuttle service for all Augustana students. There are typically two vans which travel throughout the Quad Cities. Pick-ups are at Westerlin Hall and Andreen Hall. Students inform the driver where they would like to go and when they would like to be picked up.

Generally students will travel to Walmart, Target, North Park Mall, South Park Mall, a movie theater, or out to eat at a favorite restaurant.

Second City

One of MPB's most popular event is hosting the annual Second City show at Augustana College where the improv group focuses on not only jokes for college students but as well as the general audience. The Second City show is a ticketed event in Centennial Hall.

The Second City specializes in sketch comedy, improv, and has been entertaining for more than 50 years. There are resident companies in Chicago and Toronto as well as National Touring Companies and casts on NCL cruises.

The Second City provides the audience with the chance to see comedy stars in the making.

Last Comic Standing

Every year students have the chance to showcase their comedic talents to the rest of the school. Tryouts are held weeks before the show and upon passing the first round, student performers display their talents in a 5-minute act during the show. The performance is held in Wallenberg Hall (located inside of Denkmann). Prizes are given to the top three performers.

Honest Conversations

Honest Conversations brings together a diverse group of students for dinner and conversations. The atmosphere is informal at Tredway House at 3244 9th Ave. in Rock Island.

Student will gain a deeper understanding of stereotypes, prejudice and discrimination. Students will seek ways to create a more welcoming, inclusive community at Augustana.
