Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead April 2 - April 5
8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
10 years later and the Peanuts gang is back.

An "unauthorized parody."

This show is definitely intended for a Mature Audience and not for those easily offended.

When CB's dog dies from rabies, CB begins to question the existence of an afterlife. His best friend is too burnt out to provide any coherent speculation; his sister has gone goth; his ex-girlfriend has recently been institutionalized; and his other friends are too inebriated to give him any sort of solace. But a chance meeting with an artistic kid, the target of this group's bullying, offers CB a peace of mind and sets in motion a friendship that will push teen angst to the very limits. Drug use, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion and sexual identity collide and careen toward an ending that's both haunting and hopeful.

Directly after the social, feel free to stay and participate in ASG's weekly senate meeting. This is a wonderful opportunity to present ASG with any questions or concerns about what's going on around your campus. Event times are as follows:

4:30-5:00 pm - Pre- Senate Social
5:00-7:00 pm - Senate Meeting

ASG will also be conducting the last Safety Walk for the spring semester after the senate meeting. You can use this walk as means to voice any improvements or ideas for safety around campus. Hope to see you there!
