The University Center Programs Council has new events in store for ASU this semester, including several concerts. 

 “All of the events are great because we have great students who plan and program them,” Sam Mendoza, coordinator of Student Programs and Activities, said. 

UCPC has planned for musicians of different genres to perform during this season’s Ram Jams and other campus events. 

“We took some time to listen to students and their comments and concerns about what they are looking for in regards to concerts,” Mendoza said.
The organization took note of what students prefer to listen to at school functions and chose different musicians based on the feedback. The idea is to bring a larger crowd out to the school functions in hopes of increasing school spirit. 

“We are trying to do things differently, such as the Welcome Back Bash we held to start off the semester,” Mendoza said. “It was a big event being the first day of school and there wasn’t any Texas country, which is what is usually here. Students wanted something different, so we brought something different and students responded really well to it.”

For the first Ram Jam on Sept. 24, violinist from Midland, Texas, Rhett Price will be performing. Price has performed for ASU students before with an acoustic guitar player, but he plans on performing with a DJ for this upcoming concert.

“We had Rhett Price perform about two years ago and we had a good crowd response,” Mendoza said. “A cool thing about him is he actually used to play for Bart Crow back in the day.”
