Social clubs Theta Psi and Delta Omega hosted Full Moon Festival, an annual benefit concert, in Allen Arena on Saturday. This year’s concert combated drug and alcohol abuse by promoting “pure, clean fun.” The lineup featured fellow students, some who perform professionally. Senior Joel Clinger offered to shave his head as an incentive for students to raise money by purchasing tickets or refreshments. True to his word, Clinger buzzed his locks on stage after the concert exceeded the goal and raised over $5,000 for Ed Pack Global.   Photos by Anna Rogers   « ‹ 1 of 2 ›...

Second Stage Student Theatre ‘Really Really’ photo gallery

Opening March 23, student-founded theatre collective Second Stage Student Theatre will premiere the play “Really Really” at the Darkhorse Theatre. The play by Paul Downs Colaizzo shows the complications among a college-age friend group when one of them accuses another of assaulting her at a party. Though controversial in nature, the play speaks on relevant topics, which is why director and junior Natalie Risk kept the harsh material in the show. She and the founders of 2SST hope their portrayal of these events sparks conversation about assault prevention on campuses. After each showing, there will be a talkback with professionals from the Nashville area who deal with these situations. “Really Really” runs March 23-25 at 7:30 p.m. To preorder tickets, visit the event page.     « ‹ 1 of 5 › »   Photos by Anna...
