The Eco-Reps kicked off Drew it in the Dark with an Open Mic Night on Thursday, March 21 at 7 p.m. in The Space. Drew it in the Dark is a two-week long competition where all the residence halls compete in order to see who can use the least amount of energy. “Drew it in the Dark has to do with the entire campus and having different groups come together to have this event,” said Eco-Rep Kyra Jean Cipolla (’19). “It helps raise awareness about sustainable energy and renewable energy.”
The event was sponsored by not only the Eco-Reps but also co-ed a cappella group All of the Above and RHA. Students performed covers, original songs and even stand-up comedy. Throughout the night the audience enjoyed the refreshments an trivia provided by the Eco-Reps. “The event is pretty cool, I felt very comfortable singing and I’m happy to support the Eco-Reps,” commented Sarah Lewis (’21) who performed “Ghost” by Ellie Henderson with Katie Revelas (’20). Other performers included Max Lozynskyj (’19), Amanda Aller (’19) and Jillian Canal (’19) singing and playing guitar. Nina Esposito Faraone (’22) also shared her beautiful voice while playing the piano.
