Late Night Programming is an initiative implemented by Student Leadership and Involvement with the help and support of many student organizations and student leaders. Entertainment is funded by the Student Activity Fee with additional support from co-sponsorships.
The mission of late night programming is to make an alcohol-free environment available to students through quality late night entertainment during prime social times.
All comedians/performers will perform on Friday or Saturday Nights in the MUB Ballroom unless otherwise noted. Some performances may include adult material and content that might not be appropriate for all viewers.
Make sure you save these dates in your calendar.

This happened after Jimmy personally attended one of Pete’s live shows in NYC and immediately invited him on the show. Pete’s joyful humor comes from his Midwestern roots. Raised in Janesville, WI by divorced parents and a 19-inch television, he was destined to pursue a career in entertainment. In 2005, Pete flew to New York to make his television debut on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend, and the taping went so well that he decided to move to NYC. Soon after moving to NYC, he was selected to perform at the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, where he was voted a standout performer. (Photo courtesy of PeteLee.net)

Gray is a lighthearted approach to start an important conversation without scaring or triggering students.

The Freedom To Be Yourself

This session is an honest, no-offense-taken, collaborative conversation between the facilitators and participants about the reality of diversity in this country, in higher education, and on a personal level. As much as this conversation is about diversity, it’s also about being a leader, stepping outside of our own comfort zones to understand others, and knowing when to lead others to a higher level. It’s about how we can all get the most from our relationships and achieve what we want collectively. It’s for student organizations, advisors, grad students, and undergraduates. It’s for all of us.
