Oct. 11, 2019 LA GRANDE, Ore. – “On a small campus it is easy to think there is nothing to do, but we have highly rated events happening here all the time,” said Alexa Jones, an event coordinator for Eastern Student Entertainment (ESE).
Comedian and magician Ben Seidman is scheduled to perform for students at 7 p.m. on Oct. 16 in the Gilbert Event Center.
Every year, Eastern Student Entertainment sends its event coordinators to the National Association for Campus Activities (NACA) Conference. This year, the event was held in Columbus, Ohio. With over 1,000 student leaders in attendance, event coordinators viewed 10 to 15 performances each day for four days. Between keynote talks about encouraging their peers to get involved, EOU students selected potential acts to visit La Grande.
Jones said Seidman kept the crowd laughing throughout his entire performance. Seidman invoked crowd participation, which she said is a key reason they invited him to EOU.
“You don’t just have to go to sporting events to show school pride,” Jones said.
ESE works to provide a variety of experiences and create an inclusive environment for all students on campus.
“For off-campus students, when they leave classes they are home for the night. We want to bring students back to campus to get involved,” Jones said.
She encouraged students to participate because students pay for ESE activities.
This event is free to students and community members. For more information, contact Le Bailey at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Eastern Student Entertainment Office in Hoke Union Building, Room 204.
