UNCG Campus Weekly

Campus Weekly is published each Wednesday when classes are in session. In the summer, it is published biweekly.

Duane Cyrus is in the house (So is Michael Parker)

It’s a new series called “Around the House,” to help alumni and community members easily engage with UNCG in a relaxing, rejuvenating atmosphere.

Organized by the UNCG Alumni Association, each event will be in the Alumni House and will start at 6 p.m. The $10 cost per evening includes wine and cheese refreshments and parking in the Oakland Avenue Parking Deck.

The next “Around the House” evening will be Tuesday, Oct. 25, 2011. Duane Cyrus, associate professor of dance, will showcase “Entrepreneurship in the Arts.” He will discuss his work with the North Carolina Entrepreneurship Center housed at UNCG and how his company, Cyrus Art Production, engages communities and serves UNCG through high-profile performances, workshops and training in dance.

The following “Around the House” event will feature Michael Parker, professor of creative writing, speaking on “Myth, history and fiction” Tuesday, Nov. 15.

Six are scheduled for the spring semester. Campus Weekly will have the listing in January.

You may register for an event at www.uncgevent2.info.
