Mary Lou Williams Center for Black Culture

Mary Lou Chill Week


A week we encourage students to use their study time to finish strong as well as use our space for any support or information they may be seeking each semester. The past weeks consisted of Survival Kit making on a Monday with items like face masks, tea, and snacks amongst other things to help the students prepare for finals weeks. We hosted the last Ted Talk Tuesday, the last Jazz at the Mary Lou and two events on Thursday- Throw down Thursday and Fresh, Fly and FROnominal and concluded with Classically Black on Friday. Each of the days provided a comfortable event for students to engage with and enjoy as they wrapped up their spring semester. Future events are subject to change per semester and each academic year based on theme.
