The first week of March will see Eastern holding events across campus, ranging from educational to theatrical.  

Monday will start off the week with a Zoom meeting of the Minority Teacher Education Association Panel Series.  

This installment of the series is called “Hearing from Our Past to Motivate Our Future,” and will feature Eastern alums discussing their experiences as minority teachers, according to Eastern’s events calendar. The event will take place from 6 to 7:30 p.m. 

Tuesday will feature a Jazz Lab Band performance in the Black Box in Doudna at 7:30 p.m.  

Located in room 2430 of Buzzard Hall is the Wired Wednesday Webinar, and Wednesday’s meeting will address common mistakes that both writing teachers and students make and features M. Colleen Cruz.  

An Eastern performance of “Little Women: The Broadway Musical” is happening from Thursday to Sunday in Doudna’s theatre. Thursday through Saturday’s performances will be at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday’s at 2 p.m.
