Art Boom, the area’s first tri-college faculty art show, is an excellent option for early week entertainment.

Get out and about around campus this week with events from Greek Life, the Libraries and tri-college visual art faculty. Two of these events are free while one charges for charity reasons, so there’s no obstacle of price in the way of attending these events.

Monday: Delta Tau Delta’s Knoephla Feed 
Fill your stomach and your heart at Delta Tau Delta’s knoephla feed fundraiser for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The German specialty will be served from 5-8 p.m. at University Lutheran Center. The soup feed itself is quickly becoming a tradition for the NDSU fraternity, which is good news for both the philanthropies supported and students craving a homestyle meal.

Tuesday: “Makers: Women”
Keeping it campus-centric with NDSU Library’s featured event on Tuesday, the “Makers Film Series.” Each week through Nov. 4, a documentary from the PBS series will be shown in Classroom 120 on the library’s main floor. The movies highlight powerful, progressive women and their contributions to society. Each week takes on a different theme, this week’s being war. The event is free and open to the public beginning always at 4 p.m. Refreshments will be served to follow.

A few examples of highlighted figures include Oprah Winfrey, Hillary Clinton and Katherine Switzer amongst many other noteworthy stars. It serves as an easy opportunity to gain insight to humanistic issues and historical knowledge. The event is hosted by NDSU Libraries and NDSU Women and Gender Studies, with funding from Division of Equity, Diversity and Global Outreach.
