Six Augsburg College students were given the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get an inside look at the music business when they worked backstage during the Bon Jovi “Because We Can” tour held in April at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. The students were selected for the band’s Community Service College Campaign based on their community engagement and leadership. Participants included [pictured L to R] Alom Martinez Aleman ’13, Andrea Batt ’13, Alexandra Jamieson ’14, James “Bear” Mahowald ’13, Thu Nguyen ’15, and Morgan Waldorf ’15. The group got hands-on experience in public relations, media, management, and ticketing; and took advantage of the opportunity to network with media and music professionals.
