Student Advisory Council

Campus Comedy Night was created in 2023 with the help of the Center for the Performing Arts Student Advisory Council and arts engagement assistants. The council, in its third year, features Penn State students from organizations and colleges throughout the University Park campus that represent various topic areas, including the performing arts, minority identities, STEM and student government.

The council’s goal is to help identify areas where students feel the center can offer programming with students in mind, whether in terms of the type of performance or identities represented in them. Thanks to feedback provided from the council, the comedy event aims to highlight diverse voices from a new generation of performers.
