The Office of Student Involvement (OSI) at Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) hosted Caribbean Night featuring reggae music at the Last Chapter Pub on Oct. 28. Student Involvement and the managers of the pub helped coordinate this event.
The event began at 8 p.m. and featured the reggae funk band Boom Lava. The band provided live music for the students who attended the event. Free smoothies, along with snacks and beverages, were also handed out to students in the pub.
The managers of the pub organized this event with the hopes that it would create an alternative place to go for students who wanted to relax and talk with other students while listening to reggae music.
“We were hoping to provide a safe environment for students to come hang out and listen to some live music,” said Grace Shapiro, one of the pub managers that was present at the event. This is the first year the Last Chapter Pub hosted this event. They plan on organizing another Caribbean night next year with a Caribbean food bar.
Freshman Anna Laugelle attended this event. “It seemed like an interesting event and I wanted to find out more about what it was. I was interested in hearing the musicians,” said Laugelle.
Laugelle enjoyed hearing the live music while hanging out with other students at the pub, and reported that she would definitely return for Caribbean night next year.
