The 18th annual event, which is open to the public, will be held on Sunday, April 1 at 7 p.m. in Warriner Hall's Plachta Auditorium. Tickets will be $4 at the door and proceeds go to Big Brothers Big Sisters in the Heart of Michigan (a United Way program).
The event is sponsored by the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, which was able to raise $1,400 for the American Red Cross last year.
"Jock Rock continues to be a favorite event each year for CMU athletes," said track and field/cross country student-athlete Raeanne Lohner, who serves as SAAC President and Jock Rock committee member. "Through the acts, it's typical that we discover an entirely different and talented side to our fellow student-athletes, which isn't always showcased within the realm of competitive sports. To that end, it's a great community builder – extending from athletes, coaches, students, and the Mount Pleasant community. In a larger context, it's rewarding to know we are making a difference for the charities we choose."
The participating teams will be gymnastics, soccer, wrestling, women's basketball, women's track and field/cross country, football, men's track and field/cross country, field hockey, volleyball and men's basketball.
Last year, the competition was won by the women's track and field/cross country program.
