Enjoying Good Food and Music

What could make “Fried Chicken Tuesday” better?  The answer is simple — just add entertainment.

The Student Programming Board at Mississippi University for Women was introduced to the idea of combining great food and music during lunch while attending an Association for the Promotion of Campus Activities spring conference. “Tunes at Noon” was created with the students in mind to give them a little more relaxation as they consumed their lunches.

“Everyone gets really involved in the performances, and people even sing along with Scott Porter at Tunes at Noon. Our main focus is the students and their enjoyment of each and every event that we bring to campus,” said Katlyn Bryant, director of the Student Programming Board.

Music has been linked to having some sort of emotional connection to its listeners, and the emotions flowing towards the new lunch time activities have been a great success. MUW students have been very responsive to this new change of atmosphere during their evening lunch.  “Tunes at Noon” have given the student a time to kick back, relax and enjoy good company and food right in the middle of their studies. With a variety of music performances, “Tunes at Noon” has something that will captivate each and every student.

“The Student Programming Board really wants a lot of people to come out and enjoy our events this year because we have some different performances coming to our campus that everyone will enjoy,” Bryant said.
