Engagefest rocks the Quad

Recording Industry student Gabriel Matos (aka Night Swims) performs at Engagefest Tuesday, Sept. 24.

For the fifth year in a row, the Department of Recording Industry put on its celebrated MT Engagefest in coordination with the universitywide event MT Engage Week.

Engagefest gives students the chance to showcase their talents on a campus stage. Student musicians, songwriters, singers and hip-hop artists performed all day on the Bragg steps. 

“This is definitely one of the best events put on by the university. It brings all the talents together and all of the unique attributes of the different organizations. It’s the only time of the year that all the organizations get together,”  said AG Estes, a student in the music business program and AMP creative director.

Amy Macy, the faculty adviser for AMP Entertainment, helps organize the annual event with her students and other student organizations, including NSAI, CMA EDU, Omega Delta Psi and Urban Entertainment. 

“It has become a tradition for the Department of Recording Industry with the College of Media and Entertainment to put on our MT Engagefest,” Macy said.  “[Our] musically talented performers of MTSU are featured on the Quad from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.”

Sound for the performers is provided and managed by Frank Baird’s 4330 Sound Reinforcement class. The college, in conjunction with Honor’s College American Democracy Project, also celebrated National Voter Registration Day with a booth to register students to vote.

MT Engage encourages students to not only think in a more integrative way about their academics but to reflect on their experiences inside and outside of the classroom from the time they set foot on campus. The mission is to create opportunities for students “to become physically and psychologically involved in productive learning activities.”
