DAYTON, TN – Students sang the night away at Bryan College’s Karaoke Night last Wednesday at 8 p.m. on August 31, 2022. Plates of pizza rolls and several metal tubs with cans of ginger beer were served as snacks.

Students put their name and the name of the song they wished to sing on a piece of paper to enter. Most of the staff wore pink cowboy hats. Disco balls projected patterns onto the ceiling of the cafeteria. Potato chips and an occasional glow stick covered the tables. 

Some of the biggest hits were “Hallelujah”, “Hey There Delilah” and “Sweet Caroline”. The crowd was loud enough during the latter to drown out the music.

Ashlee Smith, a sophomore psychology major and student engagement intern, sang “Romeo and Juliet” by Taylor Swift. Smith helped set up the event, as well as decide on the theme. “We just put some tablecloths down, threw up some decorations, and we made the pizza rolls, we put the drinks out, and it just all came together,” Smith said.

Kyla Phillips, a sophomore physical therapy major, said that she thought that the event would be a good start to the semester. “I know the first week is stressful, new students coming in, starting over, so we wanted something to lighten the mood,” Phillips said.

Maddy Fournier, a freshman creative writing major and Sally in Bryan College’s upcoming production of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown”, sang “We Don’t Talk about Bruno” with three other students. “Everyone here’s so hyped, so even if you go up there and you don’t do so good, they just make you feel good about yourself, and everyone’s having so much fun,” Fournier said.
