Headliner Concerts Committee (HCC)

The Headliner Concerts Committee,  which is composed primarily of students, makes the decision on what big-name artist to bring to campus each year. The Student Activities Fee supports a limited number of free student tickets, which are made available through a reservation and pickup process.  Over the last three years the committee brought Grammy winning artists John Mayer, Foo Fighters, Kid Cudi, rappers T.I. and Snoop Dog, among others, to Barnhill Arena.
