Founded in 2002, A Cub Bella is the premier female a cappella vocal group at Missouri State University.  A Cub Bella president Jessica Durham and the group’s publicity director Shelby Graham joined us in-studio to talk about their fall concert “Bellas Reloaded,” which takes place Saturday December 2nd at 7:00pm in MSU’s Plaster Student Union Theater.

With the joy of the holidays also comes stress. It hits you from all sides: gift-giving, financial burdens, crowded malls, packed calendars.

 

It all adds up.

To do this, the library is gaining an “interdisciplinary” space — home to the newest technologies, like drones and tetherless virtual reality devices.
