The Office of Residence Life hosted the Family Weekend Talent Show. This year the tradition of the talent show had a new twist with students and their family members performing in the talent show. Talents ranged from vocal performances, a magician, instrumental performances, and a comedy act. Students competed with family and friends for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places prizes.
