#ProFresh seemed to be the hashtag on everyone’s twitter feed Thursday for a night of live tweets, Ferris Fest, and food. The event was co-hosted by the Student Leadership and Activities, as well as Entertainment Unlimited
Students got the chance to live tweet with Jason LaVasseur and ask him questions about his professional, as well as personal life. Melissa Hanson, President of Entertainment Unlimited (EU), also answered questions about her involvement on campus.
“I have learned so much from being a part of EU, and I got to share some of that with the Twitter world,” said Melissa. “It was so exciting, and we had such a good turnout.”
“I think our favorite part of the night was partnering with E.U. to announce the 2012 headliners for Ferris Fest,” said Avery Larson, who is a member of PRSSA who works in the Student Leadership and Activities office. “We had so much traffic that night because students were way ecstatic to find out.” It was announced that Motion City Soundtrack would be the headliner at this years Ferris Fest. The show opener will be Yelawolf.
Those who attended had a blast, and the event was overall a success. The vibe in the room was great, and everyone went crazy with excitement once the headliners were announced. It was so great to learn about the industry from people who live and breathe it everyday.
