Hendrix College is dedicated to providing its students with numerous co-curricular opportunities to stimulate and enrich their cultural and intellectual interests. Public lectures on a wide range of topics presenting differing points of view are designed to keep students informed on matters of regional, national, and international importance. Other programs include musical performances by visiting artists, gallery talks in connection with art exhibits, dramatic productions, a series of foreign films, and scholarly conferences on current topics. These are complemented by Hendrix student recitals, concerts, art exhibits, and plays. Such events are sponsored by College agencies including the Hendrix College Fine Arts Endowment Program, the Hendrix-Murphy Foundation Programs in Literature and Language, and the Marshall T. Steel Center for the Study of Religion and Philosophy.
