Rana Tucker, graduate student of Ashland, performs a song during “Open Mic” April 23 that she wrote as a requirement for a class.

Anyone can take part in the event, by reciting poems or prose, or by performing a piece of music. This is also an opportunity for creative peoples to receive instant feedback from the audience on their work.

Jovan Mays, senior of Aurora, Colo., has hosted Sigma Tau Delta’s event since its inception. However, Mays is graduating this year and plans to return to Denver. After an audition, Mays was selected as a member of Mercury Cafe National Slam Poetry Team out of Denver.

However, Mays believes that the tradition of the monthly “Open Mic” won’t die out.
Mays said he is sure that some of his friends, who support his ideas, as well as the whole community, will be eager to contribute to the event.

According to Mays, “Open Mic” is essential to the community.
