Purdue Convocations offers ways for students to get involved

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Purdue Convocations offers students two ways to get involved this year through participation in their student organizations, Convocations Voice Network and Student Concert Committee.

Convocations Voice Network, also known as CVN: The Student Ushering Club, was created to support and promote the performing arts presentations brought to campus by Convocations.

Currently, more than 350 students volunteer their nights and weekends ushering patrons at performances in Elliott Hall of Music, Loeb Playhouse and Fowler Hall. Students who participate in ushering at performances are permitted to stay and watch the show at no cost. CVN members may usher for as many or as few shows as they like. Callout will be 8:30 p.m. Tuesday (Aug. 28) in Wetherill Laboratory of Chemistry, Room 200.

The Student Concert Committee (SCC) helps to advise Purdue Convocations about popular entertainment selections for students on Purdue's West Lafayette campus.

SCC is a group of 16 student members who are selected through an application and interview process. Those chosen experience the equivalent of an internship in the entertainment industry. In addition to weekly meetings, SCC members work on-sale days for SCC shows, are involved in publicity and promotional duties for their events, and work backstage the day of show. Each year the committee selects eight new members. Callout will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday (Aug. 29) in Stewart Center's Fowler Hall.
