Students Suggest Bands For SPA To Bring To Penn State
Penn State’s Student Programming Association (SPA) has no easy task in trying to bring big-name acts to perform on campus while both staying within its budget and pleasing as many people as possible. SPA receives more than $1 million from the student activity fee each year to put on all of its concerts, speakers, and everything else. In other words, one Taylor Swift concert would exceed its entire budget for the year. Nonetheless, each student ends up paying about $25 to SPA each academic year so it’s important to get your money’s worth.
Even in a good year, students are going to have some suggestions of their own; a wishlist if you will. Knowing this, we asked the Twittersphere last week what bands, artists, or speakers you’d like to see SPA bring to Penn State, and we got everything from The Strokes to My Chemical Romance to Rich Homie Quan. While many of these acts are well out of SPA’s budget, it doesn’t hurt to dream and use these to get a feel for the genres we would like to see. Check out the Storify of the responses we got below, and if you’re reading, SPA, the ball’s in your court now. You can also fill out SPA’s survey to help it better serve your needs, or you can apply to join its lecture committee.
