And if you’re already starting to make plans for 2017, you might want to work in a new open course being taught by the Tolkien Professor, Dr. Corey Olsen. The course is called Exploring the Lord of the Rings, and it will take students through the books chapter-by-chapter using the game as a reference point. There will even be field trips! The first class starts on January 3rd and may be attended by anyone.

This three-day event returns this year with 23 scheduled hours of music and stories featuring 20 player bands. The fun starts next Friday, December 16th and runs through Sunday, December 18th.
