7:00 am - 12:00 am    Green Cat Press Exhibition

Exhibit / Merril-Cazier Library

A selection of broadsides by the Green Cat Press, from the Merrill-Cazier Library's Special Collections, is on display in the Library's Atrium. Each broadside combines a literary work, such as a poem or essay, with imagery. These fine prints, many resulting from direct collaboration with well-known authors, have themes ranging from cats and nature to the metaphysical. The exhibition may be viewed during regular library hours until early September.

1:30 pm - 2:30 pm    Mindset Workshop

Workshop / Counseling and Psychological Services

Mindset -- From earliest childhood, we establish a fixed or growth mindset. Those who foster a fixed mindset believe their abilities are limited and worry excessively about meeting the expectations of others, living in fear of judgment. They under-perform due to perfectionism and anxiety and avoid or make excuses. Those with a growth mindset believe anything is possible with effort. They are willing to take healthy risks and view challenges as opportunities. They perform to their ability and often exceed the expectations of others, but aren’t afraid to fail, viewing mistakes as key to learning. This workshop will outline the characteristics of the growth mindset; provide examples from academics, the arts, athletics and business; and summarize activities conducive to the development of such a perspective. Please call to reserve a seat, 797-1012. Check our website for new workshops in the fall semester.

7:30 pm - 9:30 pm    The Drowsy Chaperone -- The Old Lyric Repertory Company

Arts & Entertainment / Caine College of the Arts

It all begins when a die-hard musical theater fan plays his favorite cast album on his turntable, and the musical literally bursts to life in a rambunctious tale of flappers, gangsters, divas and Latin lovers. Rated Intermediate for mild language. Presented by USU's Old Lyric Repertory Company, based in the Theatre Arts Department.
