Original Announcement

We are excited to share some big news!

We are planning a major festival and concert event in September to celebrate the return to on-campus classes and operations for Fall semester. The day-to-night party will start at Westville and move to Hammond for a concert featuring two nationally recognized artists. Welcome to Roaring Loud.

It gets even better: you choose the artists. We are having our own March Madness in April with two brackets to select the artists we invite. We even made a Spotify list so you can check them out!

The showdown starts today. We need to hear from you who will be invited to perform at Roaring Loud.
