PC’s Student Union Board hosted its first event of the new semester with a Coffee House Night on Friday in Springs Campus Center. Around 200 students turned out to watch their fellow students and friends sing, play instruments, or recite poetry at the open mic before listening to guitarist, keyboardist, and singer Dylan Arms perform.
168 students and athletes turned out for the anticipated event and packed the blackjack, poker, roulette, and craps tables, which were manned by our own faculty and staff. President Dr. John V. Griffith, Dr. Campbell of the History department, and Interim Dean of Students Linda Jameison, wearing classic Vegas green visors, were only a few of the faculty who served as dealers at the tables.
