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

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) or $35 (general public). Please visit the Blanche M. Touhill Performing Arts Center ticket office to purchase your tickets.
