Do you enjoy attending arts events and engaging in cultural discussion with your peers?
The Illuminations Colloquium (University Studies 43, Course Code 87669), a one unit pass/no pass course, invites you to explore and discuss arts and culture at UCI and in Orange County. Attend five events and you will earn 1 unit! As a student in the Illuminations Colloquium, you will attend at least five Illuminations-sponsored events and engage in brief reflective activities. You’ll meet students from across campus and share a range of experiences, including concerts, dance and theater performances, panel discussions, exhibits, and films. You’ll also have a chance to help shape the Illuminations program by providing feedback on our programs and helping us build new audiences for the arts and culture across campus.
