Biographical Sketch

The Student Union Program Council was responsible for planning and organizing various social events, such as the Speakers and Artists Series, movies, dance performances and entertainers. By the 1990s, University Center Programs became the administering body and the social events were renamed as the Nightlife Series.

Scope and Contents

The collection consists of various programs and flyers that advertise the special activities and events that were offered as part of the Speaker and Artist Series. It was also called the Artist and Speaker Series, and is now referred to as the Nightlife Series.
