One of the greatest weeks of the semester!

Hey Guys,

I don’t know how many of you are aware of this, but there is a great opportunity every semester on campus. That opportunity is the SXU retreat Awakenings. Luckily I was able to get to go on this retreat and I had a blast! Although I am not able to reveal details

regarding the retreat, I can tell you it’s an amazing opportunity that in my opinion you should not pass up!

I had a really good time and made a lot of new friends from Saint Xavier that I never knew before, it was a great way to build yourself up and meet some new people!

I would recommend going to anyone at SXU, you won’t regret it!

As you all know, I work for the Saint Xavier radio station WXAV 88.3 fm, I get a lot of really cool opportunities because we are in fact a radio station. Although I have been able to interview some of our men’s basketball players, I have never actually been given the opportunity to interview someone that is famous or well know. That all changed yesterday!

Yesterday, I was given the opportunity along with my friend Maloree to get to go to a concert in Joliet for the band Lacuna Coil. Lacuna Coil is a hard rock/metal band from Italy

who have a lot of recognition overseas. I have never been able to interview a band before, so this was quite the experience. Maloree and I were able to go on the tour bus and meet with Andrea Ferro one of the lead singers and interview him. I was not exactly nervous at first but I was pretty excited to get the opportunity that many people do not get in their lifetimes. As soon as we were on the bus, all of the little bit of nervousness went completely away with the warm greetings he gave us!

Be sure to tune into Closing Time, the radio show of Mal and I Thursday to hear the interview. It will be played sometime between 8-10 pm.
