It answers the question, “So, what are we doing tonight?” whether you’re into sports games, film screenings, workshops, and more.
Don’t forget to mark your calendar for major events like Family Weekend and Homecoming.
The Warrior Entertainment Network sponsors activities for students in Winona while the Campus Activity Board hosts events for students in Rochester.
Family Weekend is a perfect time to invite your loved ones to see your new home at WSU.

WSU is a campus for creators to play, perform, produce, and perfect their art—whatever that may be.

If you’re a bit of a bookworm, then WSU has 2 reading series that are your perfect match.
Looking to break into the writing world? Start building your portfolio with campus media outlets.
The Common Book Project is like a campus-wide book club where everyone is invited to read a selected book and talk about the themes and issues it raises.
The Common Book is often part of required reading for courses—especially ENG 111—and used in other on-campus events, like public readings and lectures.
The Great River Reading Series brings in poets, fiction writers, and non-fiction writers on campus and into certain English classes.
If you’ve been dying to meet a published author and listen to them read their own work, mark these events on your calendar pronto!
The Winonan is our student newspaper covering sports, entertainment, and campus news as well as student life and opinion pieces.
