    Trophy Points:
    I am posting this in General Chat in hopes that more members might see it.

    I will try to keep up with the separate events on our events page, but without our Volunteer Events Coordinator, I sometime fail to timely post.

    Please note that there are TWO interesting events tonight. My apologies for not notifying everyone sooner.
    However, the events happening later in the month or year are in the Events section as well as here.



    TONIGHT!! Wednesday, March 1 - Film Series at the Byrd Center - "Dr. Strangelove" from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. in the Robert C. Byrd Center for Congressional History and Education Auditorium. Stanley Kubrick's class 1964 film was the first commercially successful political satire about nuclear war and Cold War politics. "Dr. Strangelove" touched on rising popular fears about technology and nuclear war in the aftermath of the Cuban missile Crisis and as the arms race between the united States and Soviet Union continued. Free to the public. Contact Jody Brumage to reserve a space at 304-876-5648.

    ALSO TONIGHT: Wednesday, March 1 - The Performing Arts Series at Shepherd University and Multicultural Student Affairs present the award-winning play "They Call Me Q" at 7:30 p.m. at Shepherd University's Marinoff Theater. Developed by actress and playwright Qurrat Ann Kadwani, the play speaks to the universal search for identity experienced by immigrants of all nationalities. "They Call Me Q" is the story of a girl from Bombay growing up in the Bronx who seeks balance between cultural pressure and wanting acceptance into American culture. Along the journey, Qurrat Ann Kadwani transforms into 13 characters that have shaped her life including her parents, her teachers, Puerto Rican classmates, and Indian and African-American friends. Kadwani's play ran for seven months off-Broadway and has won a host of awards including Best Play (Maui Fringe), Best Actress Award (VTG Festival), New York State Assemblyman Award, Bronx Borough President Award, Trailblazer Award by SAIPAF, Cultural Award by AAPICC, and Dream Award by SAPNA.
    Tickets are available now at the Bookstore. $10 general public, $5 for Shepherd staff/faculty or senior citizens, and FREE TO SHEPHERD STUDENTS with valid Rambler ID at the Shepherd University Bookstore, 304-876-5219. Tickets will also be available that evening at the Theater.
