Weather-wise, February is ending with a whimper in western Pennsylvania. Entertainment-wise, the 29-day month is ending with a bang at Penn State New Kensington, or to be more precise, the banging of a drum.

New Kensington is sponsoring three events—a dinner theatre; a graduate degree information session; and a musical performance—that will accommodate the diverse interests of campus students, Penn State alumni, and community residents. Two events are on campus, and one is off campus. Two are free, and one is charging admission. All are open to the public.

The event triple opens on campus with an interactive murder mystery dinner theatre, “Mobsters, Molls and Marinara,” at 5 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 26, in Café 780. Tickets are free for students with ID, $10 for faculty and staff, and $20 for the general public. Price includes dinner and theatre. To reserve your seat, contact Lauren Blum, student life coordinator, at 724- 334-6063 or ldb14@psu.edu via email.

The next day, an off-campus venue is home for the third information session on the Penn State Master of Business Administration program. The session is scheduled for 6 p.m. on  Monday, February 27, at the Regional Learning Alliance in Cranberry, Pa. Penn State New Kensington will partner with Penn State Erie, The Behrend College to offer the MBA degree in the fall. To register for the session, visit https://secure.bd.psu.edu/MBAForms/MBAInformationSession.aspx online.

Leap day not only brings an end to the longest February since 2008, it also concludes the campus’ celebration of Black History Month. A performance by Jabali Afrika is set for noon on Wednesday, Feb. 29,  in the Forum Theatre. The four musicians' afro-rock sound blends authentic African music with modern styles. For more information, contact Lauren Blum, student events coordinator, at ldb14@psu.edu or 724-334-6063.
