Unlike KYLE, the latest Welcome Week Concert headliner, Fetty Wap, isn’t an emerging artist, but one who has been at the top of the industry since his explosion in popularity following his hit 2015 single “Trap Queen.”...

This also means that a dozen uncontrollable circumstances must fall into place perfectly: The weather, the artist performing well, attendance — things that the Student Programming Board (SPB) has almost no control over. At both concerts I have been to, the board has done an...
