Fairfield Hosts First Annual Lip Sync Battle, March 28
Fairfield University will host its first annual Lip Sync Battle on Tuesday, March 28 at 9 p.m. in Alumni Hall. The Lip Sync Battle, featuring faculty competing against students, will be emceed by Dean Donald Gibson. This event is sponsored by the Dolan School of Business (DSB) Second Annual Week of Service.
In creating the event, the DSB wanted to bring students and faculty together outside of the classroom to have fun while participating in a service event. “The Week of Service started its first year last year. There were different events every day for students and faculty. We wanted to come up with a new event that would get the students and faculty more involved. Thus, the Lip Sync Battle was born,” stated Anthony Pope ’18.
Nominations can be submitted for any student or faculty member. Nominations are $1 and you can cast unlimited nominations. The $5 admission fee at the door can be paid with StagCards. The four students and the four faculty members who raise the most money will compete. Students, faculty and staff can submit their nominations at the following locations and times:
