Student Center to host ‘Noon Tunes and More’

by Christi Mathis

CARBONDALE, Ill. -- Just as its name suggests, Southern Illinois University Carbondale’s Noon Tunes and More will offer music, give-aways and information about great opportunities to get involved.

Noon Tunes and More is set for Thursday, Jan. 21, at the Student Center.

Black Fortys, an indie-rock band, will play from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Roman Room. Enjoy the concert at no cost. Special Programs and Center Events (SPACE) will have a special display table there as well, offering information and giveaways. You can pick up the free green 25-cent refill cup there. Just take the cup to participating locations in the Student Center all semester long and get a refill for only a quarter.

Also, in keeping with tradition, the RSO and Volunteerism Fair is set for Thursday. Students are welcome to visit the Student Center Ballrooms between 5 and 7 p.m. and check out about 150 booths highlighting many of the hundreds of Registered Student Organizations at SIUC. It’s a great opportunity to get involved, meet new people and be active in a group with a focus you care about. For more information, look online at www.stddev.siu.edu.
