Silent Dance Party


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.
