Tufts Alum Returns to Campus to Headline
Tufts University and alum comedian Evan Wecksell announce free music
event for all students on Friday, September 2 at Oxfam Café.
MEDFORD, Massachusetts (PRWEB) August 22, 2005 – With roughly 1300
new students moving in to the Tufts campus and thousands more
returning, orientation week can be one of the most overwhelming
college experiences. However, Tufts University’s Oxfam Café and Tufts
graduate, comedian and singer-songwriter Evan Wecksell are injecting
some much-needed melody and hilarity into the week.
Friday, September 2 at Oxfam Café, Wecksell headlines a free Midnight
Café orientation show to give new and returning students a much needed
break from carrying boxes of clothes and books to their dorm rooms.
“It is beyond exciting to be performing back at Tufts,” says Wecksell
who graduated in 2001 with a major in child development and
psychology. “I wouldn’t even be playing guitar today if not for CD 51.
I had to take up a new hobby and then apply class theory to my
progress. I’m still progressing.”
The show will not only entertain students with Wecksell’s act, but
also introduce them to a socially conscious live music venue. All the
profits from Oxfam Café go to Oxfam America, an organization which
funds self-development and disaster-relief projects worldwide. The
café is also connected with the Oxfam Collective, which organizes
campus-wide activities on hunger-related issues, such as the FAST for
a World Harvest and the Hunger Banquet.
“We are very happy to have Evan playing our Midnight Café orientation
show,” raves Frances Dixon, Midnight Café Manager. “The show will be a
great time in a socially conscious environment and provide the new
students an alternative to drinking.”
Oxfam Café’s orientation show takes place on Friday, September 2 at
10:00 PM. Oxfam Café is located on Tufts University campus behind
Miller Hall. The show is free and open to the public.
