UW Student-Led 7220 Entertainment Volunteer Meeting Jan. 25

January 18, 2017

Student volunteers are being sought for various committees that bring quality entertainment to University of Wyoming students throughout the semester.

The UW Campus Activities Center’s (CAC) campuswide activities group, 7220 Entertainment, selects, plans, promotes and presents a variety of popular entertainment programs and films that enhance the social and cultural life of UW students.

7220 Entertainment is looking for committee members to join one or more of its five committees. A general interest meeting to learn more about 7220 Entertainment is scheduled at 5 p.m. in Pete’s Game Room in the lower level of the Wyoming Union Wednesday, Jan. 25. Free pizza and games will be provided.

7220 Entertainment features the Films Committee, Fine Arts and Lectures Committee, Large Scale Events Committee, Late Night Events Committee and Weekly Events Committee.

The Films Committee plans free, full-length feature films on a weekly basis. Selections may include current major studio releases, documentaries, cult films, throwback films and public domain films. The committee meets Wednesdays at 4 p.m. in Room 012 of the Wyoming Union.

The Fine Arts and Lectures Committee provides UW and the surrounding community with free cultural, artistic, educational programs and thought-provoking lectures.

“The purpose of this committee is to enhance and cultivate diversity, and to provide educational and cultural opportunities that are unique to the campus and expand the knowledge of participants,” says Jake Ostrow, CAC program adviser.

The committee also oversees the operations and exhibitions for Gallery 234, located in the Wyoming Union’s lower floor. The committee meets at 5 p.m. Mondays in Room 012 of the Wyoming Union.

The Large Scale Events Committee brings large-name entertainers to UW. The committee attempts to deliver diverse acts throughout the academic year, including speakers, musicians, comedians and other performers.

“The committee is expected to generate revenue from its events in order to offset costs to allow the committee to bring more acts throughout the academic year,” Ostrow says.

This committee meets at 6 p.m. Wednesdays in Room 012 of the Wyoming Union.

“The Late Night Events Committee provides UW students with free, quality entertainment that is fun, unique and exciting that takes place during targeted prime social hours,” Ostrow says.

The committee is expected to plan and execute larger scale, multi-tiered programs on specifically targeted nights and weekends as determined by CAC, Ostrow adds. The group meets at 2 p.m. Wednesdays in Room 012 of the Wyoming Union.

The Weekly Events Committee schedules events and activities for the student population to enjoy on a weekly basis. Ostrow says the committee develops a comprehensive, diverse schedule of events throughout the year, including music, comedy, speakers, spoken word, trips and special events.

The committee meets at 4:15 p.m. Mondays in Room 012 of the Wyoming Union.
