UW-La Crosse alumnus and hypnotist Chris Jones returns to campus to help kick off the new school year.

Jones, a 2008 graduate in sociology, performs at 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 1, in The Bluffs, Student Union, 521 East Ave. N. Admission is free.

Jones first became interested in hypnotism when he was a sophomore on campus. He was called on stage to be hypnotized during a campus event and ended up pretending he was a baby kangaroo in another volunteer’s pouch.

Now, Jones is the most-booked hypnotist on college campuses across the country and was the 2015 “Hypnotist of the Year.” He’s known for hypnotizing germophobe Howie Mandel to shake hands on the season opener of the 2015 season of  “America’s Got Talent.”  

His visit is part of the UWL Campus Activities Board performances and is co-sponsored by New Student Orientation. For more information on his performance visit www.uwlax.edu/cab or call 608.785.8873.
