iCUE Spotlight: April 13-20, 2017

What's in the CUE this week at Ohio U.

It seems like only yesterday we were starting syllabus week, but here we are about to head into the final week of regular classes for the semester and the close of International Week! Have you accomplished all the goals you set for yourself this semester? If one of your goals was to get more involved on campus, be sure to head on over to the Calendar of University Events so you don't miss out on any of the exciting events leading up to the close of spring semester. Or help others know what's going on by adding your department or organization's event - anyone with an OHIO ID can add events that are happening on all OHIO campuses!

Here are a few highlights from the week ahead:

23rd Annual Seabury Quinn, Jr. Playwrights' Festival (April 12-22, various times, Forum Theater in the RTVC Building and Baker Theater in Kantner Hall): The annual festival of plays written by third-year M.F.A. playwrights returns with fully staged feature performances and script readings throughout its run. If you've ever wanted to see a play in the various stages of development, this is your chance because three guest mentors along with the audience will be able to participate in feedback sessions with the playwrights. OHIO students can see everything for free with ID. Admission to the readings (Baker Theater) is free for all; tickets to the featured productions (Forum Theater) are $5.

#FinalsbyAlden: Long Night Against Procrastination (Monday, April 17, 6-10 p.m., Alden Library): As you gear up for finals, Alden Library is here to help with the #FinalsbyAlden series of events.
