DSU Talent Rocks the Underground

As a part of our homecoming week festivities, DSU Live hosted “DSU’s Got Talent” in the Trojan Center Underground.  We were thrilled to have a huge turnout, with every seat filled! We were also lucky to have three ingenious (and quite hilarious) judges: Professor Michael Gaylor, Angela Behrends, and Susan Conover. The acts were impressive and diverse, including musical acts, comedy, and magic.

An anonymous posting from a student summed up the experience: “The DSU Talent show was amazing! Everyone there was nice, and well talented! For the first time I felt a feeling of bonding together and school spirit! From the very talented musicians, to the dorky hilarious comedians, over the bad ass rappers to stage breaking magicians, everyone was amazing! For the first time I can remember the school showed a sense of community. Everyone who missed this show better figure out what it was about! This year the events were joined in by so many people, it was a once in a life time event. The dance last month and many of the previous attractions were so well visited with such enthusiasm, this year is going to be a great one.”


The scores were tallied from the judges, and the winner was Andrew Gross, followed by John Niesen and Billy Hofer. We can’t wait for our next big event when we welcome Avian Sunrise back to the Underground in October! (All photos taken by Tiffany Sommer)

Students do Promo at the Activities Fair

Dakota State had the annual activities fair this week, where clubs and organizations set up their booths and entice students to join them and attend upcoming events. DSU Live and KDSU Radio were two of the groups out chatting with students and drumming up excitement.  Discussions are in the works for bringing in some great musical talent, so we are all looking forward to what the school year has in store.

On a separate note, congratulations are in store for Audio Production program graduate Tyler Steele. He is now Multimedia Specialist for Information Technology Services here at DSU!
