The UST Sampler is an entirely student-run production from start to finish. It is a CD sampler of original music written by artists at the University of St. Thomas. The music is recorded, produced, mastered, and organized onto a CD featuring original album artwork. In the spring semester, a Sampler Release Party is thrown so that some of the artists featured on the CD may perform live and various merchandise is given away including the CDs, t-shirts, posters, stickers, and much more! Come for the food, but stay for the incredible music and talent of your peers!
