GSU Fall '08: One Non-Stop Dance Party

First there was the announcement of Girl Talk's show in Metcalf Hall...what next? Weekly DJ sets in the back court? With a full cash bar?

Well, yes. That's exactly what's currently being worked out by a group of BU students, who were encouraged by Dean Elmore to throw parties in the GSU every Thursday next semester. Titled "Jammin' Thursdays", these parties are free with a BU ID, and a BU student may bring one guest along. (There's a $5 cover charge and the guest needs to bring an ID.) Test runs have been taking place during orientations, and according to students, they've been a hit.

"We were so excited and amped [when Dean Elmore proposed this to us]," said Vanessa Arenas, one of the students who is working closely with BU Student Life to plan Jammin' Thursdays. "Jammin' Thursdays has an urban feel to it and will be Feat. DJ CASE who spins the best of hip hop, r&b, top 40, latin and more. We are currently working out the details to get a 21+ cash bar."

The first party will be a Welcome Back Pajama Party on September 4, from 10pm-2am.
