Mercyhurst students were invited recently to experience a foam party at The Cell Block on State Street on Thursday, May 2.
It was beach themed and planned by juniors Lauren Hansle and Airion Watkins-Clark. Students were urged to wear bikinis and shorts and have fun in the foamy mess.
“My friend approached me with an idea to let the underclassmen enjoy a dance party. It turned into a foam party since the only day we could host it was on a Thursday and wanted to add a special twist,” Watkins-Clark said.
When MSG announced earlier this year that The White Panda would be headlining Springfest I was beyond ecstatic.
I had heard from several of my Penn State friends that The White Panda put on a high-energy, mind-blowing show, and that I was in for a real treat.
I am happy to say that my friends were so right! Both Super Mash Bros and The White Panda killed it.
People from around the globe are greatly impressed by the new format of the Mercyhurst University radio station, WMCE 88.5FM and 1530AM.

Each year tuition increases at Mercyhurst University, much as it does at most colleges. Next year, the increase is lower than last.
Last year, students faced an increase in tuition of 4.67 percent which was equivalent to a $1,746 increase.
Next year, incoming and returning student will pay an increase of 3.98 percent which is equivalent to $1,559, resulting in payment of $187 less than the previous year.
The cause for the lower increase is due to the slow economic recovery.

The Lakers finished the regular season with a respectable record of 15-9, which earned them a three-way tie for first-place position in the PSAC Western Division along with Gannon’s Golden Knights and the California (Pa.) Vulcans.
Representatives from Mercyhurst’s campus in Ireland visited Mercyhurst Main on an April 29-30 summit to report back on the campus’ status.
University President Tom Gamble, Ph.D., cited three main subjects brought up during their visit. First, were the educational opportunities Mercyhurst students have to study abroad.
Jeff Roessner, Ph.D., Dean of Arts and Humanities, concurs, seeing the cultural and travel opportunities as well as the educational opportunities that the Ireland campus has to offer students.
“Not only do students get to immerse themselves in the Irish culture of a local community, including its food, music, and history,” said Roessner, “but they also have the advantage of easy travel around the country and to continental Europe.”
The second area of interest at the summit was the emerging Intelligence Studies program at Mercyhurst.
“Ireland serves as an entrance way into the European intelligence market,” Gamble said, underlining the importance of the intelligence department.
Part of the summit covered expanding the intelligence studies department and also increasing collaboration in other departments at other colleges as well.
For example, there was some discussion about potential opportunities for the archaeology departments at Mercyhurst to collaborate on projects.
In my last two articles, I gave suggestions on bands that will help you create a perfect summer playlist.
The only problem was that both bands had more of a laid-back sound and were perfect for casual listening around the pool or a bonfire. We all know though that there is way more to summer than lounging around.
This next band, Sleigh Bells, is for those wild moments of pure spontaneity that come out in everyone when you mix warm weather with the lack of schoolwork.
