What are you listening to?

“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything” – Plato.

Music is constantly changing. From record players and cassette tapes to instantaneous songs with a click of a button, music has a mark on our society, especially at Ransom Everglades. A question I have always had throughout my time at RE is: What are my peers listening to? On the search to discover the most popular artists my peers loved, I decided to ask this question to different people around campus. The answers prove the diversity of music taste in our community! They might even surprise you!
