Frog Stock will bring music to campus Wednesday night


    For students looking to celebrate the end of the semester and relax before finals week begins, Frog Stock will provide live music and free food to all students in the campus commons tomorrow from 4 to 8 p.m.

    Frog Stock is an end of the semester event that the resident hall assistants from the Campus Commons organize. 

    Evan J Saperstein, the hall director for Samuelson, Carter and Milton Daniel Halls, said this year he expects the largest attendance yet.

    “Frog stock has happened for about 5 years, but has only recently began to draw 400-500 people for the past two years,” Saperstein said. “This year we are looking to exceed the 500 mark in attendance.”

    Saperstein said the event’s purpose is to honor students’ hard work during the semester.

    “It is the last day of school and we want to celebrate the students’ accomplishment of making it through another year with this event,” Saperstein said.

    Saperstein said he hopes the students can enjoy the event with nice weather, however, Frog Stock will be moved to an available space inside if needed. 

    At the event students can enjoy burgers, hot dogs, steel city pops and tacos. 

    Student musicians will be performing at the event. 

    Artists include this past year’s student body president Cody Westphal, “Kelsey Taylor and the Boyfriends,” “Trevor Dunn,” “Collector,” “Connor O’Modhrain and Dani Smith,” “Andrew O’Brien” and “Sage Hopkins and Chris Barlow.” 

    Junior biology major and guitar player for “Kelsey Taylor and the Boyfriends,” Scott Mathis, said he is very excited for the performance.

    “Students should come to Frog Stock because it is a great way to support local musicians and fellow TCU students,” Mathis said. 

    Mathis said he loved playing in the event last year and is looking forward to being a part of Frog Stock again.

    “Performing last year at Frog Stock was a blast,” Mathis said. “There is nothing I enjoy more than getting to share what I love with my friends.”

    Saperstein said the event will be a way for students to have fun and enjoy a relaxed environment before finals. 

    “The event has had huge success the last two years and we seem to have a positive following,” Saperstein said. “We know it is a stressful time for and we hope to provide a stress free event with free food, games, and live music.”
