Should be a great night!

Fall Drama Production: In The Heights
November 13th-16th & 20th-22nd
Tickets available online
"In The Heights" tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood—a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. "In The Heights" is the winner of the 2008 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score, Best Choreography and Best Orchestrations.
Music/Lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda
Book by Quiara Alegria Hudes

Wilson has been offered an incredible opportunity for young men and women interested in engineering, computer science, and innovation. The PSU Innovation Challenge Competition is a student-driven opportunity designed to excite creativity and goodwill. A theme is announced and the selected team must creatively solve the problem while focusing on the humanitarian impact of engineering and design. Students will work with PSU mentors, tour labs, and collaborate on a solution. If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please see Kate Morgan in room 221 as soon as possible, as there are limited spots available. More information here.
