Kari Lynch Band to Headline Bulldog Beats and Eats at Ferris State University

Kari Lynch BandCountry music's Kari Lynch Band will perform a free lawn concert and the Rock Café will be serving picnic favorites during Bulldog Beats and Eats on Tuesday, Sept. 3 at Ferris State University. The event is 6 to 8 p.m. at the South Quad.

The campus and Big Rapids communities are invited to bring blankets or chairs for the free concert event, presented by the Center for Leadership, Activities and Career Services, and the Rock Café. Attendees can enjoy their meal on the lawn during the concert; cost of dinner is $9.25 for off-campus residents.

"It's new, it's something different, and it's a way for everyone to get outdoors and experience some live music," said Amber Kneibel, assistant director of the Center for Leadership, Activities and Career Services. "It's a really relaxed setting and a cool hangout spot for students to come with their friends, get some food and just chill out for the evening."

Bulldog Beats and Eats is one of several events planned during Bulldog Beginnings, a program designed by a committee of representatives from several Ferris organizations to welcome new and returning students to campus.
