Western CT State Univ. - Campus Slammer West of the River

Campus Slammer travelled west of the CT River last night to slam some stories on the Western CT State University Campus.  WCSU is the final college to host a local Campus Slammer in the 2011 season. 

We are less than a week away from the CAMPUS SLAMMER FINALS at Conn College April 28, 2011 7:30 p.m. in the Ernst Room of Blaustein Hall  finalists please confirm attendance  at

Now the results from WCSU Campus Slammer

There were 5 brave souls who tried a slam story before the musical open mic event kicked off.  Our first contestant had a very nice rhyming poem about life.  Second up was a well written love story.  Our only male competitor told us the humorous story of how he got his name and how his father was punished for it.  Then we heard about a mysterious phone number on a dining hall napkin.  The evening finished with 3 quick family stories. 

Ricky,  Jazmyn,  Diana, Sara, Jenna
The crowd, most of whom were there for the open mic, seemed to really enjoy the change up of a spoken word opening.  Our winner is unable to attend the finals so our 3rd place finisher will represent.  Congratulations to all the contestants.  Our winners are Jenna and Sara.  We'll see Sara and Ricky at the finals.                                                                   

Campus Slammer is a program of the Connecticut Storytelling Center
