Alyssa Abrenica Wins 1st CNS Got Talent
NIHAL CHOWDURY On March 28th, Natural Sciences Council hosted the first annual CNS Got Talent event—a talent show with the goal of increasing camaraderie between students of the College of Natural Sciences. Contestants showed off unique skills and talents, revealing that there’s more to CNS students than incessant studying.
The winner of this year’s CNS Got Talent was Alyssa Abrenica, who received a check for $200. She was also voted as the most creative performance and received an additional gift basket.
Five judges were present to assess the performances: Dean Linda Hicke, Associate Dean David Vanden Bout, biostatistics lecturer Sally Amen, chemistry lecturer Kate Biberdorf, and associate professor of cell biology Arturo De Lozanne.
The first half of the event showcased nine acts. A brief intermission followed where the judges picked their favorite performances while the audience watched a performance by Fuse A Capella. After the intermission, five finalists from the first round competed in a Quizbowl, answering questions testing knowledge from the various majors in the College of Natural Sciences.
