Before the high-speed winds tore through campus on Thursday and the Clinton Global Initiative University arrived for the weekend, students enjoyed the tail-end of the first half of the spring semester, with Spring Break being next week. Between country and indie concerts and job fairs, there were plenty of opportunities for students to experience life on campus and in Nashville to the fullest. 

Music City

The Basement East welcomed a new cowgirl to town this week when Jessie Murph donned a cowboy hat for her “Drowning” tour. Chappell Roan made a splash at the same venue when she opened with drag queens. Carrie Underwood’s “Denim and Rhinestones” also stole the hearts of all the “Good Girl’s in Nashville. 

Spring sports

The lacrosse team lost at home to Louisville to close out its first home series of the season. Their strong offensive push for the win in the fourth quarter couldn’t quite overtake the Cardinals. The VandyBoys won another midweek matchup, taking down Austin Peay. The team notched 11 runs for the win against the Governors. Men’s tennis beat Arkansas at home on Thursday, winning the doubles point and five out of six singles matches.
