Haros Lopez entitled “Artivate” on Tuesday, Feb. 19 from 7-9 p.m. in the SMSU lower Conference Center. The topic focuses on art influencing everything. How can you activate the art in you and your community?

    Israel Francisco Haros Lopez is both a visual artist and performance artist. He was born in East Los Angeles to immigrant parents of Mexican descent. Israel brings his firsthand knowledge of the realities of migration, U.S. border policies and life as a Mexican American to his work, addressing a multitude of historical and spiritual layered realities of border politics, identity politics, and the re-interpretation of histories.

    This event is free and open to the public.

    This event is sponsored by the Access Opportunity Success, Office of Diversity and Inclusion, Creative Writing Program and Club Latino.

  • SMSU Theatre’s 51st season continues with Miss Electricity, a short comedy for children and families by Kathryn Walat. Performances are February 23 at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., and February 24 at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. All performances are in the SMSU Fine Arts Theatre, with free parking available in lot B-1. Show tickets are $10 and are available at www.SMSUtickets.com and at the door.

    All performances are free for SMSU students with a valid ID. Up to 3 children (12 and under) can attend free with each paying adult or with each SMSU student. The show is also touring to area elementary schools on Fridays from February 15 through March 8.

    Miss Electricity tells the story of fifth-grader Violet, who wants to show everyone how special she is by breaking a world record, but she gets so pre-occupied with her goal that she neglects her friends and family. When Violet seemingly gains the ability to control electricity, the power goes to her head, and only wisdom from Mount Olympus can remind her to appreciate her everyday life.

    Miss Electricity is directed by Professor of Theatre Nadine Purvis Schmidt of Estelline, S.D., who is also the producer. Assistant Professor of Theatre and SMSU Theatre Arts alumnus Mike Lenz of Cottonwood, Minn., is the scenic, lighting, and sound designer and technical director. Professor of Theatre Sheila Tabaka of Marshall, Minn., is the costume designer. Sally Tabaka, a Marshall High School senior and SMSU PSEO student, is the rehearsal stage manager.

  • Meet Dr. Aimee Shouse, Dean of the College of Arts, Letters, and Sciences at SMSU. She is originally from Conway, Arkansas and joined the Mustang Family on July 1, 2017.

    What do you like most about working at SMSU? I love the people at SMSU because they care about making it the best place for students to learn and get involved.
    SMSU is unique because: I previously worked at a university in Illinois for 24 years. It was daunting moving to a new town, new state, new university and new job, but I quickly felt at home here. It is hard to believe that I have only been part of the Mustang Family for less than two years.
    Hobbies: Cooking, sewing, reading fiction novels, exploring state parks, and spending time with my two dogs.
    People would be surprised to know: I collect hippo figurines. I have about 30 miniature hippos from around the world. I have several hippo Christmas ornaments, and currently I have a hippo on my cell phone case! I also have a framed print in my office with a hippo.
    Also, I changed my major twice in my first year of college, from electrical engineering to economics and, finally, political science. I received my Ph.D. in Political Science and taught in that discipline for 24 years.

    Dr. Shouse discovered what a welcoming environment exists at SMSU. To find out yourself, schedule a visit through the Office of Admission at www.smsu.edu/admission

  • Get to know Gabby Power, a senior Agricultural Education major from Readlyn, Iowa! We asked Gabby a few questions and here’s what she shared:
    Why did you pick SMSU? Because it is family-oriented, affordable, and I am able to shape my own education.
    Involvement on campus: Residence Life-Senior Resident Assistant, Admissions Student Ambassador, Student Activities Committee (SAC), Ag Club Treasurer, Ag Bowl Planning Committee and intramural activities.
    What do you like most about SMSU? There's always a friendly face and someone to talk to! Whether it's a student, faculty, or staff member, you are genuinely cared about, always.
    Career Goals: I want to make a difference in the lives of students by becoming an Agriculture Instructor/FFA Advisor for a high school because I want to make just as large of an impact on students’ lives as my mentors made in mine.
    Hobbies: Volleyball, painting, and spending time with family and friends.
    People would be surprised to know that: I didn’t grow up on a farm despite my choice of major. I am a National Teach Ag Ambassador, have been a certified Agricultural Parliamentarian since 2014 and love volunteering to coach volleyball when I go home.
    Gabby first learned out about the SMSU Agricultural Education major online, and followed it up with a campus visit. She found that SMSU is where she belongs. You can too. Visit us online at http://www.SMSU.edu/admission or call 1-800-642-0684.
