Written By Sarah Gibson, Co-Opinions Editor

October 30, 2019

Through my college experience so far, nothing has been quite an experience like Rock-a-Thon. It’s unionizing, feeling complete exhaustion alongside fellow DJ’s, dedicated to one singular cause. So why does it have a theme this year? I have a lot of problems with Rock-a-Thon’s “theme” this...
