s the Plain White T’s broke into the first few chords of their pop anthem, “Delilah,” a smile broke across the face of Joe Mania ’18.
After all the hours of planning and collaboration, Mania and the Student Programming Board had delivered a rousing Fall Fest on a steamy Saturday afternoon at Quinnipiac’s South Lot.
Nearly 1,000 students danced, sang and filled their phones with photos and videos from a flashback soundtrack by the Plain White T’s and an animated performance by the green-haired front man known as The Ready Set.
For Mania, who grew up in New Jersey, Fall Fest was the latest of his seized opportunities at Quinnipiac.
“I’ve tried to spread my wings everywhere I can to get the best out of my four years here,” said Mania, the Main Stage chair for SPB, a 3+1 BS/MBA student, a tour guide with admissions and a brother in Alpha Sigma Phi.
