Theater under the stars
After a two-year hiatus, Stan State’s Theater Under the Stars returns May 4-7 with William Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing.” Preparations for the play were underway in March 2020 when Stanislaus State transitioned to remote operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The time has come for the show to go on. As theatrical productions continued during the pandemic, they were missing a key ingredient – a live audience. The cast and crew are eager to bring this timeless comedy to life and delight audiences in the University’s outdoor amphitheater.
Return of the La Defensa program
Para La Defensa, co-sponsored by Stanislaus State pre-law minor and the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences, is coming back strong after a two-year hiatus. The free event, at Snider Recital Hall from 5:30-8 p.m., May 5, features the Central Valley premiere of “Ricochet,” a documentary that follows the case of Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, the undocumented man who caused the death of Kate Steinle on Pier 14 in San Francisco in 2015.
Stan State EduCast
This episode of the Stan State EduCast features Gokce Soydemir, the first Foster Farms Endowed Professor of Business Economics at Stanislaus State and author of the San Joaquin Valley Business Forecast. The topic will be the economics of high gas prices.
In case you missed it
Stanislaus State and UC Merced launched “Campaign 1300” — a new initiative they co-lead that aims to enroll 1,300 more young men of color on campus. Universities will partner with pre-K-12 school districts and other organizations to identify and support underrepresented students.
Revised face covering
Stan State continues to require face coverings to be worn in teaching spaces, which includes any room in a building where an instructor, teaching assistant, or staff member and one or more students are engaged in teaching, learning, research, creative/executive activities, or counseling. . The face covering requirement has been published in other indoor areas from Monday, April 25.
