It was a Cole World. We were all just living in it.

The Thrillin’ Theta Xi chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., brought J. Cole to campus Friday as part of their “Friday Night Lights: Culture for Service Benefit Concert.” Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Elle Varner and Bas, a member of Cole’s Dreamville record label, opened the show.

The benefit concert raised more than $70,000 in funds for Phi Beta Sigma’s philanthropies, including, but not limited to: March of Dimes, American Cancer Society, Natural Relief Funds, and local organizations.
