What is Variety Entertainment?

Variety Entertainment (VE) is the committee that brings bigger variety events.  Comedians, illusionists, and interactive entertainment are a few of the events that are planned by this committee. Past events include Laser Tag Pursuit, Magician Daniel Martin and Comedian Arvin Mitchell!


Kathryn Martin, Chair

Kathryn AKA K-Mart is a 19 year old sophomore from Shawnee, Kansas. Majoring in Elementary Education and minoring in Leadership, Kathryn chose Emporia State because she's "always wanted to be a teacher and Emporia is the perfect school for it." She also says she "loves the size." She says a "fellow UAC member convinced her to join. From there, I fell in love with my Chair and Vice-Chair." She urges others to join UAC saying "It is a great group to join. There is so much impact on the student body, a great group of people involved and so many different ways to be involved in it." She also wants you to know that she's terrified of horses and geese.



Jessica Shadoin, Vice Chair


Jessica is a sophomore Pre-Physical Therapy major from Haven, Kansas. She originally chose Emporia because she "Was originally going into education--and still might. Not only that, but I really liked the size and the distance from home." Jess has been a part of Union Activities Council since she started school and served on the Live Music committee. She encourages people who are interested in joining to "Go for it! It's a great way to meet a ton of awesome people. It gives you an opportunity to break out of your shell and get out of your comfort zone--it did for me." She also answers to the nickname RoboCop and claims to be one of the most competitive people you'll ever meet.
