Fifth Hour Events

Though the course is a 5 credit course, you meet 4 hours a week. The 5th hour is spent outside of class seeing required films, sometimes a required lecture or performance, and at least three times a semester taking in and reporting on your choice of events on the university’s cultural arts calendar. The 5th hour reflects our desire to help you get involved in the cultural life of Valparaiso University.

Fifth Hour Activities are posted and updated regularly on the 5th hour blog.

The VUCA calendar also lists many events that students may choose to attend.

The Valpo Core Program also has a Facebook page, where we help students stay informed about upcoming events. Find us and "like" us, at:
