Join Three Peaks Review at our February Bards & Brews open mic night, with headliner Caitlin Hill. The event will take place at Crow Peak Brewing Co on Thursday, February 27th. We will begin at 6 pm, with Caitlin reading at 7. All students, faculty, and members of the community are invited to read their poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction. Because we don't always have time for every person to read, availability is first come first serve.

Statement from President Nichols

It is with a troubled heart that we write this note of concern and support for the Black community. The events over the last few weeks and following the tragic senseless deaths of African Americans in Georgia, Kentucky, and Minnesota have yet again brought racial injustices to the forefront.
