Current students can get in free with a uID. Adult admission is $12 and admission for faculty, seniors and other students is $8. Concerts will take place at the Marriott Center for Dance in the Hayes Christensen Theatre. Visit to check out specific dates and times.

Pick Your Poison

The free exhibit “Pick Your Poison” will be on display until Oct. 31. It takes a hard look at mind-altering substances and their place in society. Along with the exhibit, panel discussions and lectures will be held. The first panel discussion was Oct. 6 and it “focus[ed] on the voices of patients and families living with and impacted by addiction.” The display and programming are located at the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library, on campus. More information can be found on its website.

Love’s Labour’s Lost

The U Department of Theater at Studio 115 presents “Love’s Labour’s Lost,”a Shakespeare comedy for the poetry enthusiast. Boasting beautiful prose and plot twists full of humor, this show is a must-see. Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s Terri McMahon joins the U to direct this story full of mishaps and laughs. This is another event free for current students with their uID, $8.50 for all other students, $15 for U staff, U faculty, military and seniors and $18 for general admission.
