This week at the Office of Student Involvement at The University of Missouri-St. Louis:

It’s Mirth Week 2018. Join UMSL in celebrating Mirth Week by participating in all the great events that are happening throughout the week:

  • On Monday, the Office of Student Involvement is hosting its annual Student Leadership Awards Banquet. Dress to impress as you walk the red carpet. The banquet will take place in the Millennium Student Center Century Rooms; doors open at 6 p.m. You are encouraged to RSVP for the event by visiting the Office of Student Involvement Leadership Programs portal on TritonSync. If you have any questions, please email Xavier Blackwell at
  • The 5th Annual Last Lecture is on Tuesday from 1 to 2:30 p.m. in the J.C. Penney Summit Lounge. Join us as we honor Dr. Matthew Davis, who will deliver an address answering the question: “If you knew this was your last chance to address a group of students, what would you share with them?”
  • The annual Mirth Week carnival is Wednesday from 12 to 5 p.m. at the Millennium Student Center Commons. Join us for an unforgettable day of food, games, rides, prizes and more.
  • Thursday evening, join the Student Government Association for their annual swearing in of the newly elected senators and executive officers. This inauguration ceremony will take place at 6 p.m. in the SGA Chamber.
  • To cap off a week of fun and excitement, attend a live performance with comedian Leslie Jones. Known for her role in the “Ghostbusters” reboot and “Saturday Night Live,” The New Yorker profiled Jones as an “‘SNL’ standout due to her brash sensibility, humor, and forceful presence.”  Tickets are available now for $15 (students only) or $35 (general public). Please visit the Blanche M. Touhill Performing Arts Center ticket office to purchase your tickets.
