AUBURN, Ala. - (EETV) WEGL, UPC and the Circle hosted their semesterly open mic night at Well Red Bookstore and coffee house on Monday, Sep. 25.
Auburn students were invited to join the organizations in celebrating music, poetry and stand-up comedy performed by their peers. Any student could sign up to showcase their talents.
More than 75 Auburn students attended the event.
We spoke to Avery Welch, an Auburn student and Well Red employee, about the significance of the open mic night to her as an artist.
"It's just a fun way to see everyone in the community and see what they have up their sleeves, with either poetry or songwriting," Welch said.
The University Program Council puts on many events throughout the semester to promote student involvement. UPC member Isabel Hensley shared what these events mean to the organization and the Auburn community.
"I know countless friendships that have been formed at these events, and they also educate and inspire students," added Hensley.
The Circle is Auburn's on-campus literary and arts magazine. The publication features prose, photography, art, graphic design and more.
WEGL Radio is the student-run radio station on Auburn's campus, founded in 1965. Supported entirely by students, the station is run out of the Melton Student Center.
