On the night of Nov. 16 at 9:30 p.m., Michael C. Anthony, a hypnotist, performed in front of a crowd full of Fisher students in Basil 135. He hypnotized 20 or more students throughout the hour and a half event.
Jordan Woods, the nightlife coordinator in the Student Activities Board, said “my organization for the event was very intense. It started last semester and continued into the summer. It was a lot of work but it payed off in the end.”
Some of Anthony’s acts were making students believe that they were at a beach, that a belt was a snake, that he disappeared and the students could not see him and tricking them into thinking that he was in a water bottle.
“The show was hilarious and everyone involved had a great time watching and participating. I would definitely go to this event again.”
– Freshman Erika Miano
There were tickets be given out for raffles that students could enter in. Some of the prizes were winter “essentials” like a fuzzy blanket, fuzzy socks, hot chocolate mix and more.
“I love getting people away from their homework and have some laughs and de-stress,” said Woods. My main goal as the Nightlife Coordinator is to make sure everyone is having fun.”
Erika Miano, a freshman who attended the event, said “I came to the event because it sounded really fun and I wanted to see people get hypnotized.”
Woods said, “I would definitely bring another hypnotist because they are one of a kind shows and everyone ends up having a good time.”
Miano continued, “the atmosphere was super inviting and open. The show was hilarious and everyone involved had a great time watching and participating. I would definitely go to this event again.”
