More Music, Please

Ferris students share opinions on what events they want on campus

by Published: Oct 9, 2013

The school year has begun with as many events as any before, buoyed by the Hispanic Student Organizations events and an early Homecoming. From come­di­ans to rela­tion­ship experts, Ferris and var­i­ous stu­dent orga­ni­za­tions have sought both to edu­cate and enter­tain. When plan­ning these events, it’s impor­tant to know what stu­dents will go see. The Torch cut out the mid­dle man and asked the stu­dents just what events they’d like to see on their cam­pus — and they want music.

Jessica Ray, Freshman, Nursing

“I would love to see some­one like Kid Cudi or Wiz Khalifa in con­cert here at Ferris. I think they are such inspi­ra­tional artists, and it’d be one big party on campus.”

Venkata Kudumula, Junior, Automotive Engineering

“I would love to see more come­di­ans come to Ferris. I saw the one come­dian that came to Brophy-McNerney [Prashanth Venkataramanujam]. I think it would be cool if he came back.”

Elijah Flint, Freshman, Political Science

“I would like to see a music fes­ti­val come to Ferris. Any con­cert in which the stu­dents could pick who they would like to come visit would be ideal. I just think music is the gate­way to the soul.”

Brianne Gardener, Sophomore, Psychology

“We’ve had all types of speak­ers come here, it’s hard to decide. I think we should just have more con­certs; more artists that the stu­dents actu­ally lis­ten to.”

Ambry McCord, Junior, Psychology

“I love to watch dance. I would like to see some type of dance con­cert or musi­cal. It wouldn’t have to be any­one famous, just really talented.”

Ashlee Alexander, Sophomore, Pre-med

“Ferris usu­ally has some type of con­cert at the end of the year, but it’s not as great you think it would be. They usu­ally have rock bands, but I think we should have artists of other gen­res come.”
