Attending Events

Indiana State offers a diverse lineup of arts activities throughout the year - from professional performances, notable speakers and guest artists to performances by our own faculty and students. Many of these events are open to the public.


Many of Indiana State's arts events, such as the University Speakers Series, University Art Gallery exhibitions and a majority of music recitals, are free. Theater performances and the Performing Arts Series require tickets and have admission fees for the general public. ISU students can get into these events free of charge, just show your valid student ID.

Behavior and dress guidelines

* Be early or on time. If you arrive late, you may have to wait for an appropriate time to be seated.

* When attending events, please refrain from talking during the performance as it distracts others.

* Turn off all cell phones or put them on silent mode. Please do not check texts, Facebook or Twitter during performances. The light from your cell phone is very distracting to all audience-members behind you, and even to performers.

* Dress appropriately. Each event has a different, suggested code of dress.  Symphony are dressier than a visit to the Swope or touring our public art sculptures.

When in doubt, dress business casual. This means no jeans or flip flops—skirts, dresses, dressy pants with a nice blouse for ladies. For guys, a button-down shirt and dressier pants work well. Ties are optional, but always look good.

* Leave your laptop and bookbag at home. Working on your laptop during any sort of presentation or performance is rude.

* Keep perfume and cologne kept at a minimum, because some people are allergic.
