CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) -- Tina Fey will return to her alma mater, the University of Virginia, to kick off a speaker series highlighting the positive impact of arts on society.
The university announced Wednesday that the "30 Rock" and "Saturday Night Live" star will give the opening address on Sept. 14.
Fey studied playwriting and acting and graduated from the College of Arts & Sciences in 1992 with a bachelor's degree in drama.
U.Va. President Teresa Sullivan says Fey's visit will generate enthusiasm and momentum for the arts at the university and in the local community.
