Students gathered in the cafeteria for wings and karaoke as part of the National Student Day and St. Patty's Wing Wednesday events.

The cafeteria was buzzing with students as they came to celebrate National Student Day along with the St. Patty’s Wing Wednesday.

On Wednesday, March 13, students met in the cafeteria to eat chicken wings (traditional and boneless), taste new sauces, and get on stage to sing karaoke.

Kaytlyn Kaires was the first to sing on stage.

“I can sing and I wanted to show people that they can do it,” Kaires said. “They don’t have to be scared.”

Tim Feaganes was disappointed, not of the event, but the time it happened.

“I wish I could sing, but I’m sick so I shouldn’t,” Feaganes said.

Feaganes then tried to sing “Take Me Home Country Roads,” laughing as his voice went in and out.

The event was co-hosted by the MCCC Bookstore and the Kosch Café.

Amy Salliotte, the Administrative Assistant to the Director of Auxiliary Services, was happy with the event despite its odd timing.

“It’s usually in October but with the Back to School BBQ, we decided the winter semester would be better.”

However, it wasn’t easy organizing such an event.

“We’re down in some vendors because it was in a smaller area, and weather closings and delays made planning difficult,” Salliotte said.

Salliotte also said it is hard to figure out a time that works for both the middle college students and the traditional student.

Some students didn’t know the event was happening.

“I did not know at all,” said Cody Kosanovich.

However, Kosanovich was happy it coincided with Wing Wednesday.

“Wings are kinda the best thing they do here,” he said. “I have never had a bad wing here.”

Student government brought DJ Manny to help with karaoke.

Flyers were posted around campus for the St. Patty's Day Wing Wednesday partnered with the National Student Day event.

The event was co-hosted by the MCCC Bookstore and the Kosch Café.

Vendors such as Pepsi and Rockstar were in attendance as well.

“It was a good event,” said Beckie Baker, a sales representative with Pepsi. “We come every year and I think it was busier this year.”

Pepsi’s booth gave out free chips, Pepsis, Mountain Dew, and sampled out the new Mountain Dew Game Fuel, which the cafeteria recently ordered.

Rockstar also sampled out new flavors.

The Rockstar sales representative said students seemed to love the cotton candy flavor drink more so than their other flavors.

Assistant Professor of Speech and Tae Kwon Do, Mark Bergmooser, values the importance of student events.

“I think student events are important at a community college,” Bergmooser said. “It can bring students and that’s a good thing.”

Some students didn’t know the event was happening, despite the posters and signs put up around campus.

“I did not know at all,” said Cody Kosanovich.

However, Kosanovich was happy it coincided with Wing Wednesday.

“Wings are kinda the best thing they do here,” he said. “I have never had a bad wing here.”

Oscar Reyes had a similar opinion on the wings.

“The wings are fire,” Reyes said as he bit into one of his traditional wings.

Reyes did say however that he would not be singing karaoke.

Kosanovich, among others, went on stage.

He sang “Arms Wide Open” by Creed.

“It felt pretty good singing in front of people,” he said afterward.

Will Blackwell and Brandon Szparapowski sang “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” by Queen.

Blackwell said it was a fun song to sing.

Students, Alexander Maue and his friend Lucas Verkic, sang “In the End” by Linkin Park.

“Personally, I really wanted to have fun, honor Chester (Bennington), and try a vocal duo,” Maue said.

Maue said he is usually shy about singing but wanted to get more comfortable about it.

Verkic, however, had a different reason for singing.

“He made me,” as he looked at Maue. “He promised to buy my wings too.”
