A Capella Duo to Perform in Student Union
Interactive a capella duo Dakaboom will perform at 2:00 PM, Monday, Oct. 27, in the Student Union Rotunda as part of "Union Unplugged."
Long-time best friends Ben McLain and Paul Peglar comprise Dakaboom; the two utilize a cappella, loop stations, stand-up, sketch, crowd interaction and several musical genres to create a world all their own.
With a studio album "Get Awesome" and DVD "Live in Los Angeles" under the duo’s belts, Dakaboom spends most of the year touring colleges across the country. The pair has hosted or headlined the Los Angeles A Capella Festival at USC, Chicago's ACappellaFest and Mile High Vocal Jam in Colorado. Dakaboom has served as guest performers aboard the Diamond Princess on cruises through Alaska, and it has leant its talents to AIDS benefits across California.
Know Your Title IX Series Scheduled
UNC Charlotte’s Title IX Office, Center for Wellness Promotion, and Dean of Students Office join The Feminist Union to present "Forty IX'ers: Know Your Title IX"; a four-part series on sexual assault, stalking and relationship violence. The series will offer education, panel discussions, resources and additional learning opportunities related to Title IX and the Violence Against Women Act (also called Campus SaVE).
According to Dawn Floyd, the University's Titile IX coordinator, "We are hoping these programs are not only informative, but will also provide students with an opportunity to ask questions about UNC Charlotte’s processes and resources and an opportunity to discuss their concerns about these issues on our campus."
The series kicks off on Oct. 27 with a session on applicable Title IX laws; what the laws mean for students; how and where to report a complaint of sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence or stalking; confidential vs. non-confidential resources; and how complaints are handled at UNC Charlotte.
