Students drum away stress


One of the last College Hours of the semester brought many students together to release their stress for finals by dancing and playing to the beat of the drums.

The Associated Student Body Government (ASBG) brought Jeni Swerdlow, the owner of DRUMMM Rhythmic Events in Oakland, to unite the students on campus by conducting a drum circle.

Many students participated in the drum circle while those who didn’t stayed and watched as Swerdlow encouraged the students to continue beating their drums.

Knowing how to play the drums wasn’t necessary to join.

“The thing we liked about Jeni is that she brought in that anybody can drum,” said Bronche Taylor, vice president of student affairs. “We can all drum together and release stress from doing it.”
