Tuesday, Sept. 22, the radio station held a rooftop party on top of Hillwood Commons, from 12:30 to 2 p.m. WCWP began hosting this event last year, to showcase the campus radio station and its students.
Both Media Arts Department faculty and students helped to put together this party, which was the first event of the semester. “It was a great way to meetBroadcasting majors as well as other students,” said Destiny Diggs, sophomore Broadcasting major. Diggs also added that there was live entertainment.
The entertainment was provided by Nick Tangorra, a Public Relations freshman and his band, The Nick Tangorra Band. In addition to Tangorra’s band, the party had a DJ and food provided by Aramark. Last year, so many students came to the party that they ran out of food and had to order more this year.
Dan Cox, WCWP’s Director of Broadcasting, was primarily responsible for organizing the event. “This year’s event was a little different, because it was also the New Student Meeting for the Communications and Film Department, in order to have them all meet new and existing students,” Cox said.
“Combining the meeting with a social event was great”. The radio station plans to have a second rooftop party in October. “We do these for the entire campus community. We don’t care what your major is, we just want everyone to come together and have a good time at these events!” Cox said.
