Stop by Solarity and watch guest DJs, rappers, and student groups rock the Field House, feel the ViBE, then swing by Finney Chapel for a musical union, public master class, and late night jazz concert. Round out the week with students from Lorain County Community College at the letterpress, participate in a lecture with Kwanzaa's founder, head over to Warner Concert Hall to hear guest pianist XakBjerken play, stop by Dye Lecture Hall and talk journalism with an author, and share a few laughs with this year’s December graduates before visiting Urinetown
