The Montview Student Union has surely been groundbreaking at Liberty University. Students enjoy the multipurpose facility for a variety of events, including Open Mic nights. Typically, every other week the floor is opened for students to come share their talent in front of peers. Liberty University students enjoyed the show while sipping on a specialty drink from Argo Tea, located in the center of Montview Student Union.
The past Open Mic was a full house; students lined the balconies and filled the couches. The stage is always open to any students who are willing to share their talent. The day before Jonathan Cain, a member of the multi-platinum band, Journey, spoke in convocation and two students performed the duet of “Don’t Stop Believing.” During Open Mic Night, one of the performers stated that Liberty feels like home while singing, “Home” by Chris Daugherty. Students were able to enjoy a variety of music from classics to beat boxing and spoken word.
Liberty University’s Student Activities team does a great job of organizing events that take place throughout the semester. Many students feel a sense of belongingness as they engage in new activities and make new friends at events hosted by Student Activities. Events such as Open Mic truly do provide a feeling of home for students as they share their talent and create new memories alongside their peers.
It was a full house at the past Open Mic!
