Encountering the liberal arts through engaging events on campus.


Each year, Emory & Henry features close to 100 concerts, lectures, theatre and dance performances, films, exhibits, and poetry readings that help to complete your academic experience. The vast majority of these events are part of the college’s popular Lyceum program.  In addition, we host a literary festival and several endowed lecture series.

E&H Faculty/Administrators: The deadline for proposing lyceums for the fall is Friday, June 28. Lyceum proposals will get their preferred date and support in promotion ONLY if submitted by this deadline.

E&H Students

Need to check Lyceum Credit?

Students may check their current number of Lyceum credits by contacting the Office of the Registrar.


You are admitted free to all events with the exception of Barter Theatre plays, for which your ticket price is discounted (*see note below about using your student discount for Barter tickets). You must scan the provided event QR code both before and after each on-campus event for which you want Lyceum credit. When attending eligible Arts Array films at the Cinemall or plays at the Barter Theatre, you must bring your event program or ticket to the Registrar’s Office to receive credit.

Instructions on how to propose a Lyceum Event:

1. Identify a faculty member or administrator who will be your Lyceum’s “sponsor.”  This does not imply that they have to fund anything, just that they will be your employee point person and vouch for the Lyceum-worthiness of the event.
2. You and your faculty/administrator sponsor, find a date that works for the invited guest and is not taken yet on the Lyceum calendar.  Go to www.emoryhenry.edu and click on Calendars.  Select the Lyceum Calendar.  Whatever dates not taken on there are likely still available. (The calendar is regularly updated.)  Pick a date or two, and email Shannon Patterson (spatterson@emoryhenry.edu) to ask to reserve it.  She will ask you if a location on campus has been reserved.  
3. Therefore, simultaneously, ask to reserve a space on campus for your event.  A list of Reservation Contacts for various E&H Facilities is included below.
  • Classrooms, lobbies and auditoriums in academic buildings:  Marywood Sparks x 6201
  • King Center: Anne Crutchfield  x 6233
  • Van Dyke, Martin-Brock, Alumni House, Tobias Smith, Byars: Shanna Smith x 6242
  • Chapel: Sharon Wright x 6836
  • McGlothlin Center for the Arts: Will Hankins x 6816

Room Recommendations 

Given that Lyceums are advertised and are open to all students (and others as well), use of a room with fewer than 100 seats is not recommended.  Based on your selection, submit a detailed request for tech support with the IT Help Desk at ext. 6881 or ithelpdesk@emoryhenry.edu.  

Lyceum Times

Usual Lyceum time-slots are weekdays at 4:30 and 7:30 pm; other standard options are Tuesday or Thursday at 12:30 pm, and Sunday at 3 pm. If a non-standard time is proposed, specific justification must be given. Lyceums are not booked concurrently, except when one will be repeated (e.g., a theatre production). Lyceums are not held during Sunday services in the Chapel.
4. Have your faculty/administrator sponsor fill out a Lyceum Proposal form (Google form below) to submit your event.  

Lyceum Check-In Instructions for Sponsors

In-person Lyceums:

A QR code has been created for you to display at check-in tables, or on a PowerPoint slide at each Lyceum. Students will scan the code, and fill out the Google Form. The Google Form submissions are logged with a time stamp and submitted electronically to the Registrar’s Office.

Remote Lyceums:

Sponsors hosting remote Lyceums are required to use the EHC Lyceum Zoom account. The Registrar’s Office will provide log-in information and instructions. This account has been purchased for this purpose and requires students to input all required fields for tracking. Students who attend an event not hosted by the EHC Lyceum Zoom account will not receive credit for their Lyceum.
