February 19. Day 50. Dancing in the streets
But as a bit of a dress rehearsal today I found myself in the middle of a flash mob of the Grace College freshmen having a bit of a bonding experience in the Queen Street Mall.
After the street dance, the students were divided into groups and sent out with a "shopping list" of things to find in the city.
As I went about my business I kept running into groups earnestly studying maps and lists before rushing off in search of the next treasure. It was as much orienteering as orientation for students new to the city and university and residential college life.
They seemed to be getting right into it. With the fun over, let's hope next week they throw themselves into their studies with the same level of enthusiasm.
