Every year, the Bruin Bash stands out as one of the largest events organized by the Salt Lake Community College Student Association.
While the Bruin Bash typically celebrates the end of the school year, this year the SLCCSA will host the event during fall semester. The 2016 Bruin Bash will begin at 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 16 in the Student Center at Taylorsville Redwood Campus.
This edition of the Bash will have laser tag, a rock wall, henna tattoos, airbrush tattoos and a variety of entertainment options to last throughout the night. Complimentary popcorn and cotton candy will be served, and food trucks will be on site with special deals for SLCC students.
Bash expected to break records
Bruin Bashes have averaged about 1,500 visitors per event. But the SLCCSA wants to bring that number up, and is trying new ways to publicize the festival.
The organization has been promoting the bash on their new SLCCStudentLife Snapchat account. The new outreach, combined with bigger and better events, has student government officers anticipating a turnout this fall that will break previous attendance records.
Students stoked for hot local artists
The highlight of the night will likely be the artists and entertainers. Ogden alt-pop band Foreign Figures will take the stage in the Alder Amphitheater and local hip-hop artist Jamesthemormon will bring the event to a close.
Many students are thrilled that Jamesthemormon will bring his clean, uplifting message to the Taylorsville Redwood Campus.
“I’ve wanted to see him live for months,” says SLCC student Makayla Schmidt. “He has really good music that everyone can listen to.”
This stellar line-up will be preceded by The Cardboard Club; an alternative rock band based out of Salt Lake City. Band members include SLCC students Christian Banner, Tailor Terril and Ricky Casanova.
The 2016 Bruin Bash will have something for everyone, so bring a friend and celebrate the fall semester for a change.
