Decorum and the Arts
Decorum is NOT...
How to decide what's right and wrong, fair or unfair, but how to decide what is proper or improper according to a specific audience's expectations.
The Lyceum Series at VSU is designed to engage, enhance, inspire and provoke thought. Join Dr. Letizia Gambrell-Boone and Mr. Deandre Neal as they share information that will help you learn to navigate the dos and don’ts for attending and enjoying cultural art events and lectures. These valuable life skills will carry you through college and beyond.
An artistic presentation will also be featured during this program.
