Music line up wows students

Northern Arts and Entertainment (NAE) has brought and is slated to bring some stellar music acts to NMU this semester.

NAE President Marcela Godoy has made it clear the 25-member organization has actively surveyed NMU students on campus about what music genres they would like to hear.

Chart-topping entertainers such as Gloriana performed at NMU to a crowd of almost 1,000 attendees, and American Idol winner Phillip Phillips will be coming Sunday, April 14 at 7 p.m. to perform in the Vandament Arena — a venue which can hold roughly 1,500 people — to a sold-out crowd.

In the past, The North Wind staff has been critical of NAE’s performance.

This tenfold improvement is an example any university-funded organization can follow in order to better represent students.

By surveying students, getting the word out and effectively promoting events, NAE has made thousands of NMU students’ lives a little more enjoyable and brought entertainment that has gained the approval of a large number of ticket-holding students.

In addition to serving students, members of NAE are gaining valuable experience that will last a lifetime.

One does not often get to meet and interact with such celebrated acts as Gloriana and Phillip Phillips.

While the semester winds to an end and students plan their class schedules for the Fall 2013 semester, Wildcats should consider joining one of these groups which works so hard to further enrich the student experience.

Your college years go by quickly, and organizations such as NAE offer once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.

Don’t miss out on a chance to bring superior entertainment to NMU’s campus.

Don’t wait until the latter years of your time at Northern attend a concert or, for those up for the challenge, to plan and promote one.

And don’t forget to show your gratitude to NAE for putting together a lineup that has received the student stamp of approval.

They deserve a standing ovation.
