Mirthweek is one of the biggest events at UMSL. A week long program at the end of the Spring Semester topromote campus cheer as well as reward UMSL's students for their hard work all year long. Several events take place during the week such as The Last Lecture, The Student Leadership Awards, The Mirthweek Carnival, and the Mirthweek Headliner. Check out some of our previous headliners below!

Guess who's coming to UMSL as our 2021 Mirthweek comedian?! Spend a night with Brian Baumgartner, 'Kevin' from the Office. The University Program Board will be hosting a virtual trivia night all themed around the hit series The Office. You'll have the chance to win cool prizes (like an Apple watch), ask Brian all of your burning behind the scenes questions, and of course, play some fun trivia. RSVP to save your seat (spots limited)!
