The UNLV Forum Lecture Series runs each academic year.  This article is from 2007 and covers the fall semester only.

Certain articles are not accessible due to deletion of entire site by BlueHost.  If you are interested in more detail about the deletion, check out the link at end of article.

For all of you out there in Vegas Valley who feel you live in an intellectual, as well as geographical desert, relief is on the horizon. And this oasis is not a mirage.

After a long hot summer with little to stimulate the mind except the the Las Vegas World Affairs Club, some excellent films at CineVegas, various poetry readings, the Socrates Discussion Group and well actually, quite a few other places if you read my articles – UNLV has announced its fall 2007 schedule for the University Forum Free Lecture Series open to the public.

You can check out details at or call 702- 895-3401. Please note that the lecture series is only for fall and spring semester.  Fall semester is not posted until late summer, so the site may say  “I’m sorry, there are no upcoming events.”  We hope that this series will survive the deep budget cuts in the Nevada university system.

The University Forum is a lecture series sponsored and funded by UNLV’s College of Liberal Arts for the edification of the Las Vegas community. All events are free and open to the public, no reservation is necessary – just show up and enjoy. Lectures start at 7:30 pm sharp. Venue is the Barrick Museum Auditorium, UNLV campus, Las Vegas NV.
