Celebrating Chavez

This week CSU has hosted a series of events recognizing Cesar Chavez, the civil rights leader and founder of the United Farm Workers. Thursday, at 5:30 p.m. in the Lory Student Center Main Ballrooms, Campus Activities and El Centro are hosting a celebration for the late farm worker.

According to a posting on the CSU event calendar, the night, filled with food, entertainment and recognition, will celebrate the life and legacy of Chavez. It will include live music and reflections on the life and work of Chavez and his 50 years of service in UFW.

At the event, high school students from the Poudre School District will receive recognition for living in the legacy of Chavez.

Special guests include Tish Hinojosa, who will be performing inspirational music.

Throwing laughs, not punches

The first rule of the Fight For The Mic competition is: You don’t talk about Fight For The Mic –– but feel free to laugh.

Thursday at 6 p.m. in the ASAP Office, located in the basement of the Lory Student Center, auditions are being held for the comedy competition, Fight For The Mic.

Four students will be selected to compete in the first round, which, according to the university event calendar, pits the wit and hilarity of CSU students against each other.

April 4 is the first round of the battle, followed by a second round on April 11 and the final showdown on April 18. The winner of the competition will receive a cash prize of $500.

Considering an on-campus stadium

In its continuing efforts to weigh the pros and cons of building CSU an on-campus stadium, the university has created a Stadium Advisory Committee. This committee will provide a recommendation by the end of the semester as to if the university should consider the construction of a new stadium.

This committee is meeting Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Hilton Hotel located at 425 W. Prospect Rd.

The meeting is open to the public and will also be broadcasted online.

According to the university event calendar, the committee is a 15-member panel with representation from student, faculty, staff, alumni and community stakeholder groups.
