Silent Dance Party

(website)

A relatively new Carleton tradition, the Silent Dance Party occurs at 11 p.m. on one of the two reading days preceding final exams. Armed with an hour-long playlist of dance music chosen by the party organizer, party-goers gather on the first floor of the library, don their headphones and press Play on their MP3 players at the exact same time. The dance party then moves from the library to a variety of locations around campus.

    The Silent Dance Party in the Library is a great way to de-stress before finals. There is nothing funnier than busting a move on a table in 4th Libe (the uber-quiet floor) while someone is speed-reading Plato's Republic a few feet away.

    The library (the Libe) is a great place to study, use a computer lab, or stretch out on one of the comfy couches. Oh, and you can also check out one of 500,000 books, 1,458 print journals, 13,045 electronic journals, or 400,000 U.S. government publications. Plus, our librarians are super heroes.
