The Artist-Lecture Series was established at Midwestern State University in 1964 to enhance the cultural and intellectual atmosphere of the campus and the Wichita Falls community. The Series brings to campus outstanding lecturers and artists who have achieved national and international acclaim in their respective areas. Recent years’ events have included Pentatonix, Dr. Drew Pinsky, Cpt. Sig Hansen, Ben Stein, Bob Dole, Vanessa Carlton, Jeff Corwin, Elizabeth Smart, Dr. Michio Kaku, the Harlem Gospel Choir, and many more.

Any current MSU students who would like to become a member of the Artist-Lecture Series Committee are encouraged to complete an online application. Members are responsible for the selection of speakers and performers and the planning and implementation of the Artist-Lecture Series events. The committee enjoys private dining activities with most of the speakers and performers during their visits to MSU.
