Students of all majors showed off their hidden talents to the Marywood community at the first MU Coffeehouse Series of the school year.

The Student Activities Crew (SAC) held its first of the MU Coffeehouse Series on Wednesday, Sept. 14 in the Fireplace Lounge of Nazareth Student Center from 8:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.

The Marywood community had the opportunity to take a break from their studies to socialize, play board games and even perform on stage.

SAC Intern Nathan Duvall said the goal of hosting an open mic night is to hold an event where students can feel comfortable to participate.

“This is a way, where in a non-judgmental area, students can come and show off their talents, and that’s why I want more people to come out to these,” Duvall said.

Headliners Source4Prez and Jared Xavier, both local rappers, kicked off the night with their latest music.

“Just looking at the young people in college just vibing out to our music was amazing. We had a really good time,” said Xavier.

Source4Prez wanted to promote songs from his recent record with the audience.

“Everybody definitely showed a lot of love,” said Source4Prez.

As the night continued, more students performed on stage.

Giuseppe Galiato, a freshman financial planning major, said, “it’s a nice atmosphere here, I might sing.”

Victoria Hunsinger, sophomore psychology major, sang pop hits on stage while Amanda Allikmaa, sophomore speech pathology major, played along with the ukulele.

“I was not expecting a huge happy clap from the audience,” said Hunsinger. “I heard everyone clapping and I was blown away.”
