UNA Distinguished Events Series

Typically, the UNA Distinguished Events Series (DES) hosts two programs per year, one during the fall semester and one during the spring. Due to some renovations taking place in Norton Auditorium in the Fall of 2015, an event was not possible; However, additional efforts were made to raise funds for the DES and towards securing future programs. We will be announcing our Fall 2016 feature soon!

Each year, as the Spring distinguished event, UNA hosts an annual Front Porch Storytelling Festival on the third weekend in May. Taking place on May 20-21, 2016, will be our sixth annual Storytelling Festival. For more information, visit:
