Postmodern Jukebox at Gallagher Bluedorn

Proving that everything new can be old again, pianist Scott Bradlee has become a viral pop sensation after creating a series of clips for YouTube that finds him and his ad hoc group Postmodern Jukebox reworking 21st century pop hits in a variety of vintage styles -- transforming Miley Cyrus' "We Can't Stop" into a '50s-style doo wop number, giving Macklemore's "Thrift Shop" a '20s jazz accent, crossing Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" with Irish folk music, and showing how Ke$ha's "Die Young" would work as a classic country tune.

*UNI Students may use their free student ticket for this show. Free student tickets will not be available until January 9, 2017 at 8:30 am.

Nick Offerman at Gallagher Bluedorn

The handmade-ukulele-wielding comedic artist best known for portraying Ron Swanson on NBC's Parks and Recreation comes to the Cedar Valley to perform his smash hit live show, Full Bush on the Gallagher Bluedorn stage. Full Bush features a veritable smorgasbord of cautionary tales, tunes, and tips for prosperity.

From lessons in manliness, to high-spirited sing alongs, to the occasional bout with nudity, Offerman's stage performances are inspirational experiences for those luck enough to attend. 

*This show is not eligible to use the free UNI student ticket.

Using surveys in data collection

The Center for Educational Transformation will host a brown-bag Ed. Research Afternoon focused on using surveys in research.

Diversity Colloquium: Managing Emotions in the Classroom in an Era of Inequality

Carrissa Froyum, sociology, anthropology and criminology, will present "Managing Emotions in the Classroom in an Era of Inequality."
