A Few Highlights From the ASU Septemeber Events Calendar
As the new semester kicks into high gear, so do a wide range of exciting activities organized by ASU. Whether you’re a college student, enrolled concurrently with ASU Prep Digital, or a high school student exploring college options, there’s always something on the events calendar to keep your interest piqued. Here are a few great events to consider from the ASU September Events Calendar:
When: September 4-29
This on-campus exhibition features riotous collages by artist Ai Kijima. Kijima’s collages use meticulously pieced and fused textiles to colorfully reflect on the history, preoccupations, and social politics of the U.S. and Kijima’s home in Japan. This is a must-see for anyone with an interest in contemporary art. Best yet, the exhibition is free to the public.
When: September 6, 8:30-9:30 a.m.
This monthly meeting will be of particular interest to ASU Prep Digital students, as it invites students to discourse with leading scholars about the role of Digital Humanities in the modern world. The inaugural Coffee Hour of the semester will feature a conversation with Elizabeth Grumbach about the inherent collaborative and inclusive nature of Digital Humanities.
Career Days: ‘21 Jobs of The Future’
When: September 12, 10-10:50 a.m.
Looking to land that dream job? If so, then you’ll want to grab a front seat at this unique career days event, which could even introduce you to careers that don’t yet exist! Even as automation grows and we careen towards a “jobless future,” Rob Brown of the Cognizant Center for the Future of Work believes that 21 new job types will emerge in the next 10 years and will become cornerstones of the working world. Don’t miss out if you want to learn more about our own version of The Jetsons era. This event is free for ASU students and alumni. Community members can register to attend for $50.
When: September 15
Education is as much about what you contribute as it is about what you receive. With that in mind, ASU’s Service Plunge is a great way to kick off the school year by giving back and getting plugged into the community. This all-day event offers an ideal setting to meet other service-minded students.
Walls of Sound: The Ecology of The Borderlands
When: September 16, 2:30-4 p.m.
This one’s a triple whammy. Lovers of music, science, and nature alike will get a kick out of this unique workshop. In it, Goldman Professor of Organ Kimberly Marshall and Fulbright Scholar Alexander Meszler create a sonic exploration of the border wall using the Fritts and Traeri organs. Consider our minds blown. Tickets are $22 for adults; $16 for faculty, staff and alumni; $15 for seniors; $12 for students.
