theaterReal issues. Real Conversations.
Real funny.

Join us for a small group conversation on the biggest issues facing community college students - college affordability, mental health and racial equity. Students from across Minnesota will find out more about these topics and how to be part of the change by joining the conversation online on September 23rd!

This event will feel like you are sitting in a virtual cafe, but your barista will be replaced by an improv comedy actor that will bring the group conversation to life. Just bring a desire to chat, your humor, and a passion to make an impact.


Please keep in mind the deadline to register is September 20th. If you have any concerns or questions, please reach out to Brandon Boat at
