BLSA GONG SHOW COMING IN NOVEMBER!
The yearly presentation of the BLSA GONG SHOW will take place on November 9 from 6p.m.-9p.m. The Gong Show is a variety show during which IU Law Students and others display their talents in an attempt to win one of the three cash prizes. But, to just let the students present their talents alone would not be enough, so added to the entertainment is a large Gong which the judges strike at their own whim or at the direction of the crowd! Come out and support your fellow classmates. Ticket sales will begin in October. Acts are still needed! If you would like to perform during the show, please send an email to Rakuya Trice (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Joey Tellez(email@example.com). Join us in celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the IU BLSA Gong Show!!!
