Dear Students and Families: Congratulations—we crossed the threshold of the midway point of the fall semester earlier this week! I hope you’ll take time this weekend to recharge your batteries, connect with friends and burn off some stress. The activities…
Sept. 4 dance party to feature Syracuse’s No. 1 dance-club video DJ
Students who are looking for a fresh, new and fun night out over this year’s Labor Day weekend should attend “On the Floor at the Jersey Shore:” SU’s totally hot, yet incredibly cool, Sunday-night dance party at the beach. DVDJ Biggie, Syracuse’s No. 1 dance club video DJ of the LAVA at Turning Stone Casino, will pack the house with his crazy club/hip hop/Top 40 video remixes that are used worldwide. Check out the Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=165375966871574&ref=ts.
Sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs, Orange After Dark, University Union and Student Association, “On the Floor” is scheduled to take place on Sunday, Sept. 4, from 11:30 p.m.-2 a.m., in the Goldstein Auditorium at the Schine Student Center. Tickets are $2 and are available for purchase at the Schine Box Office. Students can purchase up to four tickets each. Student IDs and tickets will be required for entry at the event. Bathing suit attire is not permitted.
DVDJ Biggie’s beats and video remixes are sure to get students to step, tear and sweat on the floor. During the dance party, “text-in” promotions led by DVDJ Biggie will result in five lucky students who will win a free night out to the LAVA at Turning Stone with VIP treatment. Transportation to and from the club will be provided. Each contest winner is also able to bring five friends to the club for a night to remember.
Prior to the dance party, University Union will be holding a screening for students from 8-10 p.m. on the Kenneth A. Shaw Quad. In the case of inclement weather, the rain location will be Gifford Auditorium.
