Molloy College Hosts Battle Of the Bands

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.

Faculty and students brought their families to Molloy College to participate in an Easter Egg Hunt, expanding our Molloy community. Molloy College Student Government, #MolloyLife Media and the Men’s Rugby Team all came out with their bunny ears on to help out at an event to spread the Easter joy.

“I volunteered at the Bunny Brunch and it was an amazing day. I got to help out at the coloring station and watching those children smile after completing their drawing was awesome to see. I can not wait to do it all again next year,” said Angela Finnamore, a Molloy Life Media photographer about her experience.

An afternoon of love, hugs, crafts and plenty of laughs. To see more pictures of Molloy College campus events, check out the Molloy Life Flickr.

This week Molloy College Student Government hosted its 11th annual Fashion Show in the Madison Theater. The models were dressed to impress in three different categories: sleepwear, career wear and gala attire.

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.
