Loved it! Got to meet all three after the show and they were extremely nice. Such a cool event for the university to offer! Comics were very funny in my opinion. Having a headliner that was nearly the same age as a lot of the students was a good call. Great event!

Thank you for allowing students to go to the show for free. I thought Aidy Bryant was funny. Pete Davidson was extremely offensive. His set-long desire for students to give him drugs was inexcusable and a terrible example for all those who were present.

They weren't funny bc there were no jokes that were little jokes that were offensive. People like being offended. And this showcase was mediocre. Pick better comedians next time.

T.I. was terrible. The audio system was terrible.

The player's were great; the spirit was great. The only thing that I didn't like much was the fact that so many people would pass through the aisle where I was sitting in. It was quite distracting. I will never sit there again.

The Winter Commencement ceremony was exceptional! The officials in charge had everything very well-timed and organized. It made the experience an enjoyable one. I will always remember the helpfulness and kindness shown to me on my special day!!

I thought the game was entertaining. Too bad we did not pull out the overtime victory.
