Students gathered in the USU Games Room, on Wednesday, Sept. 19, to enjoy open mic performers at the Expressions Poetry Slam event. The launch event for Expressions, hosted by CSUN alum Sean Hill, also included auditions for the CSUN poetry slam team. Typically, at Expressions, students can perform spoken word poetry, comedy or even music, but a requirement of performance is for all material to be original. The venue was relatively packed, and the audience was participatory in applauding the performers; offering snaps for both polished material and moments of memory lapse.
Free refreshments, including coffee and pastries, were provided for attendees.
