 Student Government Association
Josh HumelsineMeet your SGA President
Josh Humelsine

Hello, my name is Joshua Humelsine and I am the Student Government Association Presient. I am majoring in accounting with a minor in business administration and have been involved in SGA for the past 2 years. I am very involved on campus as well as being part of a national fraternity and Greek honors society. I first got involved with SGA my sophomore year when I attended a meeting. I immediately took an interest in the amount of leadership I witnessed. This inspired me to want to make a difference on campus. Being involved in SGA has opened many doors for me and will continue to do so in the future. I will conclude with saying I will  miss all the people in SGA when I graduate because we all have formed close bonds with one another and they will all be greatly missed.

 Office of Leadership & Civic Engagement
Paul LoebPaul Loeb
Exploring citizen involvement & leadership

Tuesday, September 22  ~ 7:30 pm
FREE

PAC Pealer Recital Hall

Paul Loeb's campus visits combine the themes of his last two books, The Impossible Will Take a Little While and Soul of a Citizen, with his earlier study of the values of current students, Generation at the Crossroads. Drawing on these books and 35 years of exploring citizen involvement, he focuses on how ordinary citizens and students in particular can make their voices heard and actions count in a time when we're told neither matter. He talks of how people get involved in larger community issues and what stops them from getting involved; how they burn out in exhaustion or maintain their commitment for the long haul; how involvement can give them a sense of connection and purpose rare in purely personal life. Students from a wide variety of backgrounds and worldviews really seem to appreciate this encouragement, saying that his words give them a new sense of possibility, hope, and faith in their own power to act.


Men and Women Allies Training

Wednesday, September 23 ~ 5-10pm
FREE
Cordts PE Center, Leake Room

The Men and Women as Allies Initiative was started as a way to bring about social change and a commitment to help communities identify and develop their own responses to domestic violence, bullying and workplace violence.

"Reverse Thread"
Get ready to swing with a world-class jazz violinist


Thursday, October 1 ~ 7:30 pm
Lane University Center, Alice R. Manicur Assembly Hall

A native of Detroit,  Regina Carter's early musical influences were from Motown. Those soulful R&B rhythms have been paired with her classical training to give a fresh approach to playing the violin. Carter has brought her talent to recordings for such artists as Faith Evans, Elliot Sharp and Mary J. Blige. She also lent her musical expertise to the score of the Ken Burns documentary "The Civil War." With her quintet, Carter performs a concert
of classical and newer works, flawlessly transitioning between traditional chamber jazz and finger-snapping, straight-up swing.

Dinner plus a Concert! 5:30 PM
Enjoy an absolutely spectacular evening of dinner and music. The Supper
Club provides you with a special table with preferred seating for Regina
Carter's performance and your choice of a specially designed meal
featuring one of two entrées - Chicken Cacciatore or Eggplant Parmesan.

Arts Outreach: Regina Carter Quintet Educational Jazz Session
October 1 ~ 4:30 PM

Ms. Carter and her supporting musicians present an interactive educational outreach session in which she discusses jazz and her experiences working as a professional musician.

"Regina Carter creates music that is wonderfully listenable, probingly intelligent and, at times, breathtakingly daring... taking the listener into the future of jazz." - Time Magazine



background cesSara Evans in Concert

Saturday, October 3 ~ 8:00 PM

Cordts PE Center, Main Arena

Country music singing-sensation Sara Evans will grace the CES stage in a special Family Weekend concert. A multiple County Music Association award winner, Evans was named Female Vocalist of the Year by the Academy of Country Music in 2006. A native of Boonville, Mo. (who began singing in her family's band at age 5), Evans has experienced popular and chart-topping success since releasing her debut album over a decade ago. Her signature songs "Born to Fly," "A Real Fine Place to Start" and "No Place That Far" (a duet with Vince Gill) have all become modern country music classics and have been
praised by both fans and music critics. Evans' "compelling heart-in-thethroat vocals" are continually compared to those of country music legends Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette and Patsy Cline. She continues to branch out professionally and was named one of "People" magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People" and appeared on the third season of the hit ABC TV show "Dancing with the Stars." Every Sara Evans concert promises an unforgettable night of emotional and "on-your-feet" country music.
