Battle of the Bands is an event put on by Campus Organizations, Resources and Entertainment (CORE) every semester. This semester would be the fourth semester that CORE has put on a battle of the bands. The winner of the battle was to be scheduled to play at WT’s homecoming game.
According to RoseAnn Platt, an administrative secretary in the CORE office, Battle of the Bands was officially cancelled on Friday, Sept. 21.
“We only had two bands signed up, which was kind of a bummer because it wouldn’t make it quite the competition you would want it to be,” Nicole Moore, CORE student consultant, said
When the members of CORE who were in charge of Battle of the Bands realized they only had two bands competing in the activity, they had to make a decision. They tried to get others interested in signing up for the event, but had no luck.
“Two bands is not much of a battle and we just wanted it to be a good event all around,” said Keegan Folker, CORE student activities consultant. “We want it to be fun for the people participating and for the people who are coming out.”
Battle of the Bands was scheduled to take place on Friday, Sept. 28, but now that it’s been cancelled, Folker said there might not be any CORE event taking place that day.
“We do have a back-up plan for who is going to play at homecoming,” Folker said.
CORE may have had to cancel the battle, but there are several more events that CORE will be putting on this semester including fall carnival, which will take place on Halloween.
Moore said students who are looking for something to get involved in on campus should visit the CORE office.
“Our main objective is to help students start organizations and get involved in organizations, which we have 126 on campus,” said Moore.
For students who have been told it would be a good idea to get involved, CORE is where they can get all the information needed to make a decision on what area on campus is best for them to be a part of.
