Last Saturday, Oct. 28, at 9:00 p.m. in the Haehn Campus Center, the Joint Events Council (JEC) hosted the 2017 Fall Concert. The concert began with the opening group HRMNY, and an hour later, Said The Sky took the stage. He flooded the floor with colored beams of light, vibrated attendees’ eardrums with a thumping bass, and provided a level of energy to keep the atmosphere strong. Over 600 students went but JEC is unsure the data was fully collected by the scanners. This number is lower than recent years, perhaps due to the new genre of music.
