Greenville College Music

Posted Thursday, December 8th, 2011

Greenville College is very well known for all of the campus bands we house. If you’re looking to get involved with this crowd, there are 3 places i recommend for you.

  • The Blackroom
  • Whitlock Music Center
  • The DC

We have a large number of bands on campus, too. These musical talents are so incredibly diverse. We have our choral music which huge. We also have lab bands who take a class for credit and in return get critiqued by professors, free practice space and  time, and they are guaranteed an end of the year showcase slot.

Below you will find the link to the Music Departments page. There is so much information ranging from classes, to blogs, to majors and minors. Check it out if your at all interested in getting connected with the Greenville College Music scene!

Flee or Final

Posted Thursday, December 8th, 2011

This time of year is always the most grueling portion of the entire year. It’s the end of the first semester, finals are coming, group projects are announced, Christmas is so close we can smell it, and  we just never feel like we have enough gas to keep going. It’s hard to find time for yourself to recharge and chug through the next 2 weeks. Here on campus there are actually a great number of ways to get a little juice back in your battery.

  • Drive the back roads of Greenville and just drive. It’s really refreshing.
  • Watch a Christmas movie in the upper union with your closest friends.
  • Have a baking party with friends. Nothing screams happiness more than fresh baked cookies.
  • Write. Writing out all your anxious worries and frustrations can help you so much when feeling all the end semester pressures.
  • Go to a show in the Blackroom. There’s is always a fun Christmas show going on towards the end of the year.
  • Climb something you shouldn’t, but TAKE EXTRA CAUTION.
  • Girls, we love having spa days, so give yourself one! Not only will you look incredible, but you will FEEL better too!
  • Go for a quick run or walk. It’s a great thing to get some fresh air in your lungs.

Keep chugging everyone!! We are almost there, then we can all go home and spend time sleeping in our OWN BEDS!!

Fond Greenville College Memories – Part One

Posted Tuesday, December 6th, 2011 Tagged:

It’s nearly December of my Senior year of college, which has made me hearken back to memories of old. The first one I’m going to post is a fairly recent memory of the first concert my friends and I were able to put on last year with some great musicians Andy Shauf, Lauris Vidal and a former Greenville College student Zach Strout.

To make a long story short, our budget for this concert fell through at the last minute and I had to email these guys and let them know that the funding wouldn’t be there and we would have to cancel the show. They told me that they had planned on coming regardless of whether they were paid and they were going to put on a killer show. This just inspired us even more and we came up with the idea of doing a bake sale with coffee where all of the funds would go towards Andy and Lauris. Doing this we raised over $100 for them. It was really cool to see a crowd of 70+ people come to the Blackroom to see two artists they have never heard of before and see them walk out smiling ear to ear. Here is a video from Zach, Andy and Lauris performing a song from that night.
