Here is the list of information from campus announcements about the Shamrock Festival and the visit by Thomas on campus:
You are cordially invited to the 2017 Shamrock Festival! Celebrate St. Patrick's Day this year by immersing yourself in the Irish and Irish American cultures right here at Chattanooga State. Please invite friends at school and in the community to attend these wonderful events! We look forward to seeing you there!
• If you've not seen the fantastic Irish film Brooklyn, or if you're excited to see it again, attend the International Film Series showing on March 14th at 4:30PM in C-30.
• Grab a copy of Matthew Thomas's award winning novel We Are Not Ourselves and meet the author on campus on March 15th at 6:30PM in HSC 1085! This novel has been described as epic! *You do not need to have read the novel to attend his events.

• On St. Patrick's Day, March 17th, come to the Amphitheater at 11AM for a fun take on the Irish Ceilidh. It's like an Irish house party. There will be music, jokes, readings, and activities, as well as t-shirts for some of the lucky participants.
