The Wilmington tradition of karaoke night came to the campus on Wednesday, October 25, 2017. Students enjoyed a brilliant night of sing-a-long, making the memories they will look back on fondly.
APB hosted the event in The Underground, setting up lighting displays to create a wholesome and party-like atmosphere.
One of the students who attended the event, Shelby Dodds, a junior, commented that her favorite part was “being yourself in a way that others might not see you. You can be free in the music, whether it is your favorite song or a song you barely know.”
Many participants went outside of their comfort zone, while others embraced the spotlight. All kinds of songs and genres were sung, from modern-day rap music to the High School Musical soundtrack.
Jessica Fair, a junior, enjoys the simple activities like karaoke night, saying, “I love being able to hang out with my friends and let loose. I enjoy having a presence on campus and letting other people know I can have fun.”

When asked about what other activities can be instituted in order to enhance the campus atmosphere, both Dodds and Fair agree that a talent show would do just that.
“I would love to see a talent show so we could see students from all backgrounds show the campus their special talent, whether it be singing, dancing, magic, or even a really cool math problem. I just love watching people show off their passions!” remarked Dodds.
APB will continue to host many exciting events throughout the semester and year, so keep a look out for them, and be ready to make some memories!
