The HALE Storm

Man, sometimes I still wish I was in college, except for the fact that they are taking finals this week. I can't believe that it has been four years since I've graduated. Where did the time go??

Apparently Wednesday night, over 3,000 students from my alma mater, Kansas State University, created a flash mob/rave at Hale Library.

"As the rain poured down in Manhattan Wednesday night, K-State students didn't seem to notice. Thousands, dressed in neon colors, carrying their glow sticks, or wearing costumes, gathered on the south ramp of Hale Library and as the clock struck 11 p.m. they rushed indoors and started raving.
The rave was organized as a way to take a break from the hours spent studying for finals. A break in the library that lasted fifteen minutes before the group piled outdoors to continue the party at the K-State Union." (Click here for the article.)

I had never heard of this before! My friend explained to me that it is when people organize large groups of people to show up at a specific place at a specific time via social networking a.k.a. Facebook. I guess it's all the rage! Check out a couple video's below. It made me wish I was there participating. Why didn't we think of this my senior year??

I wonder if my sister-in-law was there.... Sally??? She is graduating this weekend! WhooHoo!! I'll be seeing you soon sweet thang!

This video is from inside the library as people are jumping around.

This one's kind of long but they turn off the lights at the end and play rave music, too funny! You can also see all the students rushing in.

I miss the good ol' college days!!


  1. I heard about that! So awesome. Yes I wish we would have thought of that too when we were there AND I also can't believe we have been gone for so many years. Oh how I miss Manhattan! Such awesome videos. :)

  2. That is fun! Gosh, watching that makes me feel old - has it really been 4 years already??

  3. Oh my goodness that is CRAZY! I totally would have participated though!


I'd love to hear from you!
