Friday on the Quad


By Nathaniel Rioux

As most students already know, Fridays in September are Friday On the Quad, an event were students and members of the community come out to enjoy an outdoor picnic and live music. This Friday marked the 3rd time this fall season Roanoke College has had this event and with it brought the band Jack, a folk music trio from around the area. The band played a mixture of classic folk songs, country and even their rendition of Born This Way from Lady Gaga. Many students and even facility members seemed to enjoy the free concert.

The weather could not have been any better for this show suggested many students as they watched the band play against the backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

There were many members of the faculty present that day, including many of the professor’s kids, who were having just as much fun as the professors that evening.
