Daily Student Perspective – Day 9: Junior Mark Knight
Our last day in Florida was a smashing success! After a late morning bus ride to Bonita Springs, we were greeted upon our arrival with a delicious lunch of pizza and fruit. Once lunch was over, we set the stage and sound checked for our two shows. The first show came and went in a flash with our audience once again enthralled with the performance. Afterwards we were treated to a delicious dinner prior to our second performance of the day. The second show was even more successful than the first and sold out completely. We completed our thirteenth and final spring break performance with the same valor and energy that we began the trip. Then we loaded up the buses and headed for home. We’ve immensely enjoyed our time in Florida but are eager to get back to West Lafayette to finish up the spring semester.
