What’s up for the year? Here are some events.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers was the first concert in the newly built Campus Events Center on January 27, 1980. Originally scheduled for Robertson Gym, the event was rescheduled for some reason and moved to the new venue. They performed with opening act The Fabulous Poodles. The Events Center has a picture from that performance as part of the wall art near the drinking fountain in the main lobby. #HistoryHighlight Thank you Marilyn!
