Each year, Monmouth University observes National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of those whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. Join the Hispanic Heritage Month Planning Committee for our month-long virtual event series including critical dialogues, performances, scholarship, and speakers including legendary labor rights organizer and feminist activist Dolores Huerta (president and founder of the Dolores Huerta Foundation).
Why go to the club when Salsa Magic can bring it to your dorm or living room? Using our Pro Zoom Web Video service, Lee "El Gringuito" Smith and Kat La Gata, professional Latin dancers and founders of Salsa Magic who have taught over 250,000 College students and traveled to over 800+ cities, will create a fun, interactive, educational experience. The virtual show will start with interactive lessons in Merengue, Bachata & Salsa! Students will have a chance to show off their moves for virtual gift cards. Lee & Kat will perform live and students can practice to a live DJ set by DJ Gringuito.
We have decided to continue with Record Club in virtual format using the ZOOM app. When you register you will be provided the meeting link to join the conversation. It’s just like book club but with albums! With new advances in technology, the way we consume music through our devices, apps and on demand streaming services like Pandora, Spotify and iTunes is making the idea of the “album” as an art form extinct. Get together with other music enthusiasts on Tuesday nights to discuss some of the greatest records of all-time! Listen to the album beforehand and then come prepared to discuss. This event will feature Bruce Springsteen: The River.
In this webinar, Damon Albano ’02, Global Head of University Recruitment, Johnson & Johnson, will share his advice on tips for the remote job hunt, what to expect when you first start a new job, what he looks for on a resume and virtual interview.
This three-session virtual course provides attendees with a multimedia introduction to popular music's history and various forms. Students will enjoy engaging, wide-ranging discussion about the soundtrack of our lives and its past, present, and future. Instructor: Ken Womack, Monmouth University Professor of English and Popular Music, as well as the author of numerous books about the Beatles.
Ian Lara is really just a regular guy from Queens, New York. He started Comedy right after college because he didn't feel like going to Law School and he's loved every second of it. Usually you can catch him performing every night in some of the best and worse shows in New York City, or he's on the road at a club or college near you. Ian Lara will probably be a household name but really all he wants is to get big enough where he can wear those big hats Pharrel wears to awards shows.
