Jackass 3D (rated R), is planned for May 5 at 8:00 p.m. Gnomeo and Juliet (rated G), will show on May 6 at 8:00 pm. Admission and refreshments are free; and both movies are open to the community.

Appreciation week is latest event for off-campus students

The first Off-Campus Appreciation Week kicks off Monday, just in time for students returning from spring break.

Sponsored by the Off-Campus Student Programs and Services Office, the event is geared toward students who live off-campus, but on-campus residents are also invited to check out the activities.

“This is a new initiative to get off-campus students more involved on campus,” said Mhevish Khan, graduate advisor for the office.
