Consciousness Tour to kick off Spring Concert

Matt Harkins, Circulation Director

The April 20 spring concert is to bring more to the stage than music, friends and fun.

As part of a Campus Consciousness Tour, a daylong event is to be held before the concert to encourage environmental and social action.

Volunteers are to talk to students about how they can get their campuses to be more economically sustainable, according to a Campus Consciousness Tour press release.

The day of the concert is to be filled with community service on campus with the concert concluding the event.

“We are now only beginning to get the list of events that will be going on throughout the day,” said Student Life Director Sherri Rae.

Possible activities that would go on during the day would be an acoustic performance by Pete Kilpatrick, an educational trivia challenge and classes on Campus Consciousness Tour issues and free Ben and Jerry’s ice cream, according to the website.

The Tour has reached over 100 million students in over 100 colleges and universities. Also, 300 million pounds of carbon dioxide have been prevented, according to the tour press release.

Past tour performers have been Passion Pit, Wiz Khalifa, Drake and Mac Miller.

The doors for the J. Cole concert featuring Big K.R.I.T are to open at 7 p.m. April 20 at the Sports Center.
