Please note, the location of the picnic has been moved to the Manchester Field while the Valley Field undergoes repairs for the upcoming summer camps and conferences. Transportation from the main campus will be provided to lessen the parking impact.
If you are interested in participating in any of the games or you would like to volunteer at the picnic, be sure to contact Adriana Garcia for details and contest rules!

Moves Like Gangnam Flash Mob
The Student Affairs Flash Mob - "Moves Like Gangnam" - has arrived! We will be performing the Flash Mob at this year's Community Picnic on Wednesday, May 29. If you are interested in participating in the Flash Mob, you must be at the live rehearsal on Tuesday, May 28 in the Sports Center Dance Room at 11:30am, and be available to perform at the Community Picnic (May 29) some time between 1:30-2:15pm.
So, if you're ready to get your Flash Mob on, click on the following link for a video tutorial. To download the audio file, click here. You can practice at your own convenience, just please make sure you have all the dance moves down before Tuesday's rehearsal. Please encourage your office mates and any guests you'll be bringing to the Community Picnic to participate! For an added bonus, feel free to make your OWN VIDEO of you (your office, your guests) practicing the dance. Upload the video to Youtube – set it to private if you wish – or email the video files directly to Kenny Eng.
If you've read this or watched the dance tutorial and you're still not sure what a Flash Mob is, or aren't sure what this could potentially be, check out this video from Chico State. Of course, our Flash Mob is unique and will only be complete with your energy and support!
Finally, remember to keep the news about the Student Affairs Flash Mob under wraps. This is meant to be a fun, spirited SURPRISE at the Community Picnic.
If you have any questions, please contact Liberty. Best of luck!
