First open mic night of the semester

The Programming Board at Florida Gulf Coast University will host the first Open Mic Night of the semester in the Cohen Center Ballroom 7 to 11 p.m. Sept. 29.
All faculty and students are encouraged to be a part of this campus activity — not just singers and musicians.
“I want open mic night to be an open forum for students to express themselves in any way they see fit,” said Emily Goldstein, director of live entertainment for the Programing Board. “They can even tap dance if they want.”
Nick Hagelin, a singer, songwriter and dancer, will host the evening as well as give a special performance.
“I’ve seen him myself and he is an amazing performer,” Goldstein said. “He gives off a feel-good vibe like Michael Jackson or Justin Timberlake.”
The Programming Board’s office is located upstairs in the Cohen Center inside the Office of Student Involvement.
Sign-ups for Open Mic Night performers are open until 5 p.m. Sept. 22. You can send your information to Goldstein at [email protected]
