Student performers, including (from left to right) Prazul Wokhlu ’24-’25, Ethan W. Ocasio ’25, and Matthew Chen ’26, showcase the diversity of talent across campus.
Nicky Youre performs both covers and originals as fans enthusiastically cheer and sing along. Youre is best known for his 2021 hit song “Sunroof,” which went viral on the social media app TikTok.
An energetic crowd met Youre, with students clamoring to give him their shirts, hats, and phones.
