Tons of students unite at the Amex Café to support their performing friends at this week's open mic.
One warm Thursday evening, students gathered in the Amex Cafe to take part in open mic night. Everyone was laid back and in great moods, content to end their day watching their friends sing and perform. Student Lilly Schreiter said to me, "I think it's really cool that people bring their own instruments and no one takes it too seriously," while Maddy Brookes chimed in, "It's a good opportunity for students to get to know each other, make fools of themselves, and get drunk in a positive environment." Throughout the night, the performers were welcomed with encouraging cheers and more people came out of their shells as the night went on. It really was a great experience to see students put themselves out there and genuinely have fun performing for their peers. If you haven't been to an AUP open mic night yet, make sure you go to the next one!
