Student Affairs Surprise Flash Mob

Have you ever found yourself wanting to break out into song and dance in the middle of the work day? Are you exceptionally talented at clapping and stomping your feet at the same time? Are you looking for one more opportunity to actively live a healthy life? If you answered YES to any of these questions, then you should probably participate in the Division of Student Affairs Flash Mob!!! We will be wowing the crowd at the upcoming Community Picnic on Wednesday, May 29 with an easy, fun, and memorable Flash Mob. Remember, this is a Student Affairs SURPRISE at the Community Picnic, so please try to contain your excitement to keep the Flash Mob within the division.

More details will be announced next week, but know that people of all abilities are welcome to participate! The choreography will be taught via video that you can watch and practice in your spare time. Encourage your office mates and even any guests you'll be bringing to the picnic to join! We will have a live rehearsal on the Tuesday prior to the picnic (TBA), but again, the moves will be super easy!

If you are someone who is confident you can learn the choreography quickly and stand in the front row, then please consider being a Flash Mob Section Leader. Contact Liberty at to volunteer for Section Leader.

Again, all who are interested in participating, look out for more info next week (announced via SA listserv).
