NSU’s Prather Coliseum was the scene of an intense competition as 13 NSU student organizations battled for bragging rights in the “Hollywood Studios Lip Sync Battle”. The groups performed their routines before a packed to the rafters student section. The standing room only crowd cheered the performers, all of whom were in some pretty inventive costumes, as they danced and “sang” a variety of pieces ranging from musical theater to hip-hop.
NSU’s Wesley Campus Ministry kept the crowd supplied with homemade treats as they raised funds for the Magooli Academy in Uganda. The academy educates children orphaned by war and the AIDS epidemic. The Wesley Campus Ministry meets Tuesdays at 6:30 pm at First United Methodist Church. The group is active throughout campus and has taken several recent mission trips. They are a worthwhile addition to anyone’s college experience. All are welcome.
The night’s festivities are part of NSU’s annual Homecoming Celebrations. There will be a Homecoming Parade and Pep Rally Friday at 5:30. The Demons will face off against Central Arkansas at Turpin Stadium on Saturday at 6:00. Be sure to come early to join in the tailgating fun and other activities. Fork ’em Demons!
