7:00 pm - 8:00 pm    Arrington Lecture Series

Arts & Entertainment / Caine College of the Arts

Opera comes in all shapes and sizes. Considered an elitist art form by many, it is capable of touching souls from pioneers and farmers to apostles and politicians. While it may be an acquired taste, we are lured to it via recitals, concerts, oratorios, and even Broadway musicals and anecdotal tales. There is no written history of “Opera in Utah,” and while references are random, they are consistently found when sought. The list of visiting operatic artists to the Beehive state is imposing, even extraordinary. Equally unexpected is the diversity of standard repertoire, and those works unique to, or composed about Utah. In turn, Utah’s operatic assets have given to the world’s arsenal of singers, and created an audience of unique proportions. And in the midst of these “voices” is another facet to the life of Leonard J. Arrington.

Athletics / USU Student Association (USUSA)

Free food and set up camp starting at 7 p.m., be gone from the Quad by 8 a.m. Students get in free with a valid student id card and seats are general admission, so sometime between midnight and 7 a.m. we will be distributing wristbands to those camping out. Those with wristbands AND a valid student id, which they will have to swipe at the gate, will then be allowed into Maverik Stadium roughly 15 minutes prior to the general student gates opening. Along with the free food on Thursday night, there will also be music, games, and a visit by Athletic Director John Hartwell, Head Coach Matt Wells, Big Blue and the Spirit Squad. We will also have a car that students can smash with a sledgehammer for a small fee. The money raised will be donated to Parkinson’s Research in honor of Captain Aggie.
