Welcome Freshmen! Are you interested in meeting and working with performers from all different venues? How about making decision about what kinds of entertainment come to Lawrence? If so, SOUP is the group for you!
The Student Organization for University Programming is a group committed to providing the campus with awesome and diverse entertainment. We are responsible for planning everything from regular musical and comedy events in the Coffeehouse and Riverview Lounge to large-scale performances, such as those by Ben Folds and Lewis Black (two of last year’s featured performers).
We also plan annual events such as Lawrence’s Mardi Gras celebration and the student portion of Fall Festival (Lawrence’s own combination of Homecoming and Family Weekends). SOUP also offers the opportunity to create some homemade programming and to help students put on performances of their own. Last year we filmed and showed our own version of Elimidate on campus.
Membership is open to all students. If you’re interested, check us out at the Activities Fair. You’re also welcome at our meetings on Tuesday nights at 9:07pm in Hiett Hall #105. Our first meeting of the year will be Sept. 30. We look forward to seeing you there!
Also, check out our upcoming events!
