Multicultural Student Coalition holds first talent show

Last Friday, Wilkes Univesity’s Multicultural Student Coalition (MSC) held its annual talent show. Students from all over campus came out to enjoy their fellow peers’ talents.

The talent show showcased the large amount of talent in the student body here at Wilkes University. Students from all different majors came out to perform and showcase their special talents like singing and dancing.

MSC provided refreshments during breaks between the performances by the Wilkes Student community.

When asked how students can get involved Conroy Yearde, the president of Multicultural Student Coalition and Senior Business management major, said, “Students can get involved by being aware of what is going on. Being proactive in actually going out to events. Finding out what is available to them on campus there is a lot of great resources and opportunities available to them here.”

The Multicultural Student Coalition is a student government mega council. The purpose of the MSC is to educate the campus about the different cultures here at Wilkes while creating an inclusive environment for students.MSC offers a number of new experiences for students and the club welcomes everyone from every different background. Student Cecelia Fiorentino, a junior nursing major, performed Billie Eilish’s “idontwannabeyouanymore” for the audience. Fiorentino, ended up winning the talent show with her performance.

“I’ve tried to do the talent show since I was a freshman, and this year I could do it,” said Fioentino

Next year students are welcome to come and participate in the event. The talent show is open to everyone on campus. Even if you do not want to perform you can still attend and support your peers.

First year English and Education double major, Rashonda Montgomery commented,

“I want to perform next year. And I think more people should perform. It would be so much fun.”
