This is just a brief reminder that PLUS will start for the spring quarter this Sunday, April 16. PLUS runs through June 4, from 3-5 pm, in Shepard Engagement Center, Room B25. Free food is available for attendees!
PLUS is a drop-in study session, where students can study alone, or with classmates, and peer leaders (students who have taken and done well in the course) are available to answer questions and facilitate problem-solving.
PLUS provides support in the following courses this quarter:
Pilot 1-to-1 tutoring: Students can sign up for a 25-minute 1-to-1 session with a math or econ leader while at PLUS. This feature is first-come, first-served: students can sign up when they arrive. (For Math and Econ 201/202 only.)
PLUS is available as a supplementary resource to office hours with professors and TAs. Many professors recommend that students form study groups to do practice problems or review material, and PLUS can provide a way for students to find an informal group to work with, in a relaxed setting with a leader available if needed.
Five years ago a number of students collaborated with the Office of Undergraduate Research to make the Creative Arts Festival. It is the largest student artistic showcase on campus, and it is the only place where all of the different arts come together. The Creative Arts Festival at Northwestern brings together undergraduate artists from any discipline to share recent projects, receive constructive feedback, and present collaborative new work. It ends up like an old time variety show with a poetry reading followed by a singer-songwriter followed by a student film, a dance, and a stage reading of a new play. We even showcase visual arts in the space. We want you to consider submitting your work to showcase.
There are two ways to play! If you already have a piece (or an excerpt), you can apply to present that. It will give your work a wider showcase, and you will get feedback (and maybe awards) from our professional jury (in past years it even included an Academy Award winning writer/director).
However, we also want to encourage you to use the Festival to create something entirely new, especially in collaboration with students in other arts disciplines. A small dance ensemble performing with a jazz trio? A visual artist painting live in response to a live solo musical performance? An actor performing a monologue from a class workshop while a film major projects custom visuals? Where mediums intersect, the sky’s the limit! Create the work (with your friends!) that you have always wanted to make – we’ll provide the venue for you to share it with your peers!
More info on the Creative Arts Festival can be found here. Performance times are generally 5-10 minutes. The Festival is May 31st at 8pm in the Struble Theater. Applications (simply a short summary of your piece) are due by midnight on April 17th.
Please contact Peter Civetta at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions!
Reach out to someone with whom you’ve been hoping to collaborate. Reprise a piece that makes you proud. Convince your best friends to build a one-night-only interactive installation…. no matter your discipline, come join the show!
