Administrator honored with lifetime recognition award
Friday, April 26, 2013 | 2:20pm
A UW-Stout administrator has been honored by the Northern Plains Region of the National Association for Campus Activities.
Mary McManus, University Centers assistant director, received the Bud Goldstein Lifetime Member Award during the closing banquet of the NACA conference in St. Paul.
She was recognized for “over two decades of work in the field of campus activities and for her significant contributions to the regional association,” according to the NACA Northern Plains Region. “I am so very honored to be considered for this award,” McManus said, citing Goldstein, an entertainment agent who served the association for many years.
“It was 20 years ago this month that I took on my first volunteer role with NACA. Great colleagues, companions, business partners and friends are the primary outcome of the personal and professional investment in this organization. Even better, the opportunity to work with and in some cases mentor college students, graduate students and new professionals into this field is the generative icing on the cake of my NACA investment,” McManus added.
McManus has a long history of contributions to NACA, taking on numerous volunteer roles over the years and working on important issues. She served as conference coordinator 1994-96 and regional coordinator 1996-99. She also served on the national level as part of the regional coordinators’ council, aided with the sexual harassment policy review process and was part of the National Board of Directors interview team.
On the regional level McManus worked on outreach to two-year schools, engaged staff to consider leadership roles and worked to further recognize associate members in business and industry as full partners in the organization.

In honor of the Woodstock theme it will feature Live Band Karaoke and Stout's own Groove Committee. There will also be FREE FOOD and inflatables for your entertainment.

We have a FREE outdoor showing, weather permitting, of the movie No Strings Attached this Friday.

Donde esta la musica?
Thursday, February 10, 2011 | 4:59pm
Now you know how to say "where is the music" in spanish! So with that in mind it's time to officially announce that the permanent home for our Thursday night shows is...drum roll please...the Sunken Lounge in the Commons! Because of its ideal location on campus and awesome sunken-ness, we have chosen this place to host our musical guests. Also, since we are clarifying locations, our meetings will offically be held in the Technical Communications Building room 106. The time is the same Mondays at 6 pm just the spot is different. We are looking forward to seeing more faces in new places this semester!
Welcome Back Stout Students!
Tuesday, January 25, 2011 | 6:54pm
Blue Devil Productions is busy piecing together a stellar line up of movies, comedians, and musicians for this up coming spring semester. Without the MSC everyone is re-adjusting to the campus. Luckily, this will not put a damper on future awesome events. Our weekly Monday night meetings will now be held in the Tech Comm Building room 106. Our Thursday night shows will most likely find a new home in the Price Commons Sunken Lounge and our first comedian will perform in Micheels Hall room 184. To start things off with a bang we are hosting comedian Rob Little and showing the action movie The Next Three Days next week. Come check out our new locations and entertaining performances in the following weeks!

Students, faculty, staff, may I have the esteemed privilege to present to you the new face of Blue Devil Productions. This summer we have been very busy, rethinking, reanalyzing, reorganizing the way BDP operates and appears on campus. So with the eighth year anniversary of the official formation of Blue Devil Productions, we have redesigned our logo, our website, and the way we operate to better reflect the attitude and direction of UW-Stout's event planning committee, Blue Devil Productions.
