On Friday April 22nd, the fury was real in the Battle of the Band hosted by Molloy Performing Arts Club, Gaelic Society and the Ultimate Frisbee Club. Five bands fought it out to come out on top and receive the $25 Guitar Center gift card for each member of the winning band.
The doors opened and the fans poured into Hays Theatre. Little by little as the night progressed, fans moved to the very front of the stage to cheer on their favorites.
Skyward Effect opened up the night with covers giving the audience Blink – 182 vibes. Two Chances Too Late, Greg Frank The Tank, The Radiance and Dear Anonymous kept the crowd dancing and on their feet. 32 Pints, the winners of the night, had an authentic sound, one of their own, separating them from the other bands and making them stand out to the audience.
The night ended with each band shouting out the others and expressing how grateful they were to be a part of the event. Overall, the night was a tremendous success bringing new fans to these homegrown bands and giving their fans a night to remember.
The sun is out and the weather is getting warmer. Some would say it is spring season. The Career Center at Molloy College likes to call it resume season. Students are preparing for graduation and looking for a summer job which means they need their resume done.

The recent weeks have been a little hectic for the Career Center. “I need my resume done because there is an open-house for nurses at Stony Brook” said Michelle Constance, a nursing student. “I need to find a job for the summer at hospitals and there was a good opportunity opening” she continued.
Students lined up in the Career Service waiting for their turn to work with Mary Brosnan, the Career Services Director. Mary is the only one that was available to help students so students waited for hours. “I came to the Career Center an hour early but wasn’t able to see Mary until half hour after my appointment time” said Kevin Cutter, a student fixing up his resume for his upcoming internship.
Mary did not leave until the last student was officially done. She taught students how to set their resume and they were able to independently correct their own resume while Mary worked with another client. The staff at the Career Center like Mary never gives up on their students and continues to help students further succeed in their career.

The models, Molloy College students, walked individually on the runway for the first two categories of the night but walked in pairs for the final, gala attire. Molloy College gear as well as some superhero onesies were modeled during the Sleepwear attire. While during career wear, students got to express what they want to be after college. Some students want to be doctors and one, Matt Cooley, shared he would like to be a server coming out onto the runway with some snacks for the hosts. The gala round shared with the audience some beautiful gowns on the ladies and handsome tuxes and one military uniform on the men. Kevin Welge, a model at the fashion show had this to say about his experience, “Walking out onto the runway of the fashion show was an amazing experience. People were cheering for me and it made me think that doing the fashion show was one of my favorite things I’ve done in the last few months.”
As well as the fashion show, Student Government held a 50/50 Raffle and other raffles handing out Panera, Dunkin Donuts and Gas gift cards to those who had their number called. The night ended with a final catwalk by all models and a roaring cheer from the audience.

On Thursday February 18th, Molloy College hosted its first ever Lip Sync Battle in the Hayes Theatre. The Senior and Freshman classes organized the event to give students a chance to bring out their inner rockstar for a night. Students went one on one to compete for a $100 Visa Gift Card.
