Family Weekend
Join us in colorful Mountain Maryland for a weekend of fun-filled festivities during Family Weekend 2010

October 9, 2010
8:00 PM
Main Arena
Tickets range from $10-$40

Lifehouse, an alternative band from L.A., will appear on the CES stage in a special Family Weekend concert. The group released its smash debut No Name Face in 2000, and since then, Jason Wade, Ricky Woolstenhulme Jr., Bryce Soderberg and Ben Carey have built on that initial success. With a formidable online presence - video streams are at 70 million - Lifehouse has delicately balanced two identities: song craftsmen and raucous rock-and-roll band. On the forthcoming Smoke and Mirrors, the band finally unites these personalities in an album loosely split between tracks that capture a live performance and catchy pop songs. Not only that, it feels as if they're doing it for the first time -"It's our fifth album but I feel like we're just starting as a band," explains Soderberg.

The Cuban Guy
October 4, 2010

Cordts PE Center Leake Room

Homeless at 16.....Millionaire at 26.
He's the author of several international-selling books including "Inspire The Sleeping Giant Within" which is published in Korea, Africa, and USA; "How To Stay Motivated During Difficult Times" and "The Finish Line" He has appeared in famous radio shows and been featured in countless news papers all around the country. He's currently the CEO of A. Success Training, former president of Inspiration Magazine, and a national known speaker. His messages reach millions every week in 33 countries around the globe through his site at But what inspires his audiences the most is that he has accomplished all that by the age of 24.

Yet, not everything came on a silver spoon for him. You see, at the age of 16 he escaped from Cuba. He arrived to America not knowing a word of English, without his parents, without any money, and was even homeless for a while. How was he able to turn his life around? How did he go from living his worst nightmare (living on the streets) to living his dream? What inspired him? What had him succeed in spite of all his challenges? That's what he reveals in his speeches.

Tim Wise - Colorblind: The Rise of Post-Racial Politics and the Retreat from Racial Equity
October 7, 2010
Doors open at 6:30 PM, event begins at 7:00 PM
Cordts PE Center Main Arena

TIm Wise
In his presentation for Diversity Week at FSU, Tim Wise will discuss the pitfalls of "colorblindness," urging color-consciousness in public and private practices. Wise argues that we cannot move toward social and economic equity until we acknowledge the diverse identities that have shaped our perceptions and the ongoing role of race in the maintenance of disparities between whites and people of color in the United States. Wise has spoken in 49 states and on over 500 college campuses. He received his B.A. from Tulane University and anti-racism training from the People's Institute for Survival and Beyond in New Orleans. His published works include "Between Barack and a Hard Place: Racism and White Denial in the Age of Obama" (City Lights) and "Speaking Treason Fluently: Anti-Racist Reflections From an Angry White Male" (Soft Skull Press).
