Mock Rock 2016!

Wow – it seems like just yesterday the students stepped foot on campus, and as of today, we are about 2/3 the way through the program!!! We’re having a blast together!

Last night, the students engaged in an incredible evening activity on the Xanadu Stage (aka the lounge)! Students competed against their peers in a lip sync battle. Each team was allowed to utilize props, and add their own special dance routine to the songs performed. Students lip-synced to Party in the USA by Miley Cyrus, No by Meghan Trainor, All about that bass by Meghan Trainor, Work from home by Fifth Harmony, Jealous by Nick Jonas, Shake it off by Taylor Swift, Single Ladies by Beyoncé & Sorry by Justin Bieber.

The students enjoyed watching each group’s performance and snacking on popcorn! We had a few Summerfuel staff members serve as judges for the performances and ranked them in the following categories: Creativity, Energy, Dancing, Song Accuracy, Performance Popularity, Organization, & Uniqueness! The award for “Best Overall Performance” was given to the students who lip-synced the song, Jealous by Nick Jonas!

Welcome to Sunny California!

It’s already been a full couple of days!! 48 students arrived to the beautiful Stanford University campus last night, participated in a whole group icebreaker activity on the mall, met with their RA (Resident Advisor) group, and successfully navigated the residence hall! This morning students met for breakfast in Florence Moore (Flo Mo!), attended their first class, participated in a campus-wide scavenger hunt, completed orientation, and hung out on our basketball court for an ice cream social!

We are very happy to have all of these AMAZING students with us for 3 weeks!
