More than 70 years ago, a series of performances by visiting musicians and choral groups was introduced to students and surrounding community members. In 1975, the students became heavily involved and primarily responsible for the Artist Series, including ticket sales, artist selection, publicity, and the preparation and clean-up of all events. Remarkably, this season marks the 40th Anniversary of the Artist Series. In 2002, the series was named the C. Shaw and Nancy K. Smith Artist Series in honor of C. Shaw Smith, the first College Union Director and his wife, Nancy. Smith served for nearly 30 years and left an everlasting, and often entertaining, impression on the students.
