Dance party? In the library?
Finals week is one of the most dreaded weeks of the semester. Papers need to be turned in (and, well, started), hours are spent studying, AND you have to slowly say goodbye to all of your friends because, of course, you’re the only one that has a final on the last day of exam week. Figures.
So what does Saint Rose do to try to lighten the mood for students? The College hosts a free “study break breakfast” one evening during finals week. This is an opportunity for students to come together, relax for a little while, and enjoy some food when meal plans are wiped out and dorm snacks in low supply. The College also hosts a “stress free zone” with a wide variety of activities for students to relax- massages, therapy dogs, BUBBLES, and more.
This year Saint Rose added a new activity into the mix for finals week- a one-song dance party in the Neil Hellman Library. The College’s Student Association supplied five songs for the Saint Rose Facebook page so that people could vote for the song they wanted to dance to:
As you can see, “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen was the winning song. On Monday of finals week, students took a break from studying in the library to dance to the song. In case you missed it, here is the video:
I personally would love to see this turn into a yearly tradition and see the crowd grow, it was so much fun!
THANK YOU to SA, the library staff, and all the students who came to dance.
