In what appears to be turning into a rite of spring on local college campuses, a flash mob took over a plaza at Boston College today for a spirited dance.
About 150 seniors participated in the dance, which they conducted to the strains of "Dynamite" by Taio Cruz, said Rachael Matvichuk, one of the organizers.
She said the flash mob, the students' senior prank, was witnessed by hundreds of students.
The flash mob performance follows a similar dance performed over the weekend by MIT students at that university's open house.
