The Dance Party! @ Odegaard event welcomed new first year students to the Odegaard Undergraduate Library at the University of Washington (UW) in an innovative, fun and engaging way. For the event, Odegaard Library was transformed into a late night dance club complete with a DJ, dance floor, professional lighting and free food on the Saturday night before classes began.
Library staff partnered with the UW’s First Year Programs to plan, advertise and execute the event. With over 2,000 students attending in just three hours, the dance party was a hit and the library was, as the students said, "lit"!
You can view the video produced by the DJ on YouTube here. (Skip to 3:15 to see the dance party in action.)
