Signature Programs

Lyricist Lounge

Lyricist Lounge is designed for poets, MCs, and singers, to perform their work witnessed by their fellow Dons.

On the last Friday of every month from 7-9 pm the University Center 4th Floor Lounge is transformed into Lyricist Lounge, the hippest spot in San Francisco. Students gather to hear peers address social justice issues, identity expression, experiences of oppression and triumph, and more!

Sign up at the door to perform, keeping in mind that slots fill up quickly.

End of the Year Ceremonies

Each event is designed to highlight the outstanding work our students have accomplished in the areas of service, academics, and leadership, while affirming the unique challenges and experiences they share.  Academic programs, cultural organizations, and the Cultural Centers unite to host the End of the Year Ceremonies each year.
