Welcome Back JMU! And welcome to campus Class of 2014!
Everyone here in UPB hopes you had an amazing and relaxing summer! However, we are looking forward to an even better semester ahead! This Fall, we are bringing many exciting programs your way: from comedians and motivational speakers to blockbuster movies and concert series, this semester’s events are going to be better than ever! That being said, here’s a look at whats happening on the JMU Campus this week:
Welcome “Back to School with Jimmy Madison” this Tuesday from 11 AM to 2 PM in the Commons. This is the first Crazy Commons of Fall 2010! Enjoy free food, gifts, and sneak peeks of upcoming events for the fall semester. And make sure you don’t miss the announcement of our Fall Concert Series!
Accents Tour 2010
The Accents Tour 2010 is a uniquely designed music series showcasing rising European and Australian artists on the verge of international success! Performing at Festival Drum Thursday September 2nd at 8 pm is Via Tania, Freddie Stevenson, and JMU’s own Trinity Edralin.
Funny Freakin Friday
Mike E Winfield is one of today’s fastest rising comedy stars. He has been featured on shows like Showtime’s Comedians Without Borders, and Last Comic Standing on NBC. His story-telling comic style and cutting jokes about his own “big ass teeth,” easily makes him the funniest comedian alive (self-proclaimed of course). Former Breeze humor-columnist, Michael Larrick will open the show followed by Mike E Winfield! Come out and …catch a laugh in TDU on September 3rd at 8 PM! And don’t forget…it’s FREE!
This Week At Grafton

7:00 – Date Night
Steve Carell and Tina Fey are “a match made in comedy heaven” (Ben Lyons, E!) in this uproarious adventure about an ordinary couple in the right place…on the wrong night. Phil and Claire Foster are a sensible, suburban husband and wife slogging through their daily lives and marriage. But a case of mistaken identity sets off a n outrageous chain of events involving small-time thieves, big-city mobsters, corrupt cops and a crazed cabbie, as the Fosters’ “date night” turns into a wild ride they’ll never forget! (20th Century Fox)
9:30 – Killers
A vacationing woman meets her ideal man, leading to a swift marriage. Back at home, however, their idyllic life is upset when they discover their neighbors could be assassins who have been contracted to kill the couple. (Lionsgate)
Have a great week JMU!
