The Cheshyre Cheese Club will kick off its semester with open mic coffee night 6-9 p.m. March 24 in the cafeteria of Loftin Student Center.

Tone Guerrero, club president and music business major, said the club invites students, faculty and the public to participate in the event.

Everything from “spoken word, song, comedy, dance, rants, and magic is welcome.”

The club usually hosts three open-mic coffee nights every semester to allow people to showcase what they love.

Jane Focht-Hansen, club adviser and English professor, encourages all talents to attend.

“Everything we create is something we honor,” she said.

For students who want to perform, but do not know what to do, Focht-Hansen said the club will provide material for impromptu performances.

Focht-Hansen noted as the oldest club on campus, the Cheshyre Cheese Club was founded to “promote humanity, humanities and humane treatment.”

Whether students simply like to sit back and enjoy the entertainment or wish to participate, there will be something for everyone. The club will provide free coffee, cookies and popcorn.

One more open mic coffee night, a special pre-Battle of Flowers event, is 6:30-9:30 p.m. April 21.

The Cheshyre Cheese Club regularly meets Tuesdays at 1:30 p.m. at the writing center in Room 203 of Gonzales Hall.
