Greek Life Presents 'These Hands Don't Haze' 
by Kate Sine

Everyone wants to be accepted. They want to make friends; they want to be part of a family unit outside their home. So, people join clubs, sports teams and Greek life. But even though there is acceptance found in these communities, there is also danger. This danger is called hazing. Where members of these groups lash out dares and threaten to shut pledges doors into the groups if they do not accept the feats, hazing is unacceptable. Bruises, black eyes, lawsuits and numerous other things branch from hazing. Instead of being welcomed into a group with open arms, these groups welcome new members with no mercy.

Nicole Amos, a sophomore at Frostburg State University is starting off her first year strong as Greek Council Standards chairman. She was given the task to plan the program, 'These Hands Don't Haze,' an annual event that spreads awareness of hazing within one sole week of September and is sponsored by the Greek Council as well. The program, held in the Lane University Center,  begins September 21st and concludes on the 25th. This event will teach others how to be aware of hazing, in order to avoid being harmed by it.


Frostburg Block Party had a great turnout! Food and fun in Frostburg, it can't get any better than that!!! 




CES presents Capstone Concert 
Jayme Stone's
Lomax Project
Saturday, September 19 at 7:30 PM
Frostburg Palace Theatre, 31 E. Main Street

"They've put a fresh contemporary sound on musical treasures found in Lomax's deep and rich archives." - NPR

Enjoy the musical beauty of the Allegheny Highlands heritage when CES presents the Capstone Concert for the 10th Annual Appalachian Festival.

The Lomax Project is the latest adventure from Juno Award-winning musician, Jayme Stone. As a banjoist and composer, Stone makes music inspired by sounds from around the world. His award-winning albums defy and honor the banjo's long role in the world's music.

Focusing on songs collected by legendary folklorist Alan Lomax (1915-2002), the Lomax Project reimagines traditional music from up and down the North American continent, including Bahamian sea chanties, African-American a cappella singing from the Georgia Sea Islands, ancient Appalachian ballads, fiddle tunes, and work songs collected from well-known musicians and everyday folk like sea captains, cowhands, fishermen, prisoners and homemakers.

" I heard an exquisite voice... It was like watching the sun rise in the west, something you would never have expected but still feel fortunate to have witnessed."
J. Robert Zeigler
- The Village Voice
"Stay the Night" Mashup

Inspired by the talents of Eric Hutchinson, Mikki has embarked on her dream to write catchy songs that merge her vivacious personality with her soulful voice. She has since opened for Eric Hutchinson as well as Ari Hest, AJ Smith, and Musaic. On her own, she's played to crowds at some of New York City's most illustrious venues including Mercury Lounge, Rockwood Music Hall, The Studio at Webster Hall, The City Winery, The Living Room, Bowery Electric, The Bitter End, Arlene's Grocery and Union Hall. She is also on the Neon Entertainment college roster and has toured campuses throughout the U.S. 
Mikki's new album  "On The Moon" is now available on iTunes and Spotify. Produced by two-time Grammy Award winner Dave Clauss and released by Purebred Records; the album is the culmination of nearly five years of writing and two years of recording, telling stories of falling in and out of love, sometimes failing, but always following her dreams.  >> Read more
