The event will start at 7:30 p.m. The company Aroma Espresso Bar will be serving free gourmet coffee during the two hours of the event.
“There is always an approximate of five to 10 performers for this type of event,“ said Sharonda Scott, an RA from the Apartment Area and main organizer of the event. Anyone who wants to perform still can; go to the Eaton front desk for more information.
“The coffeehouse event has been done several times in previous semesters, so it is kind of a tradition for Eaton,” said Rishika De, a senior Biology student and RA in the Apartment Area.
“I have been in some building events before and besides have fun, one meet new people and make some new friends,” said Federico Mattiocco, a freshman Business Management student living at Eaton.
One of the performers will be sophomore Kailey Billings, a talented singer and songwriter who frequently play at the UC patio and also made an appearance at the Sony Ericsson Tennis Open last year.
