Scientists can dance. Come out and support our science faculty and students who are competing in OSU’s annual Dancing with the FacultyAhern
fundraiser . Doors open at 6:30 pm Friday, February 20, and the dancing gets started at 7 pm in the Memorial Union Lounge, which is the area with the couches just upstairs from the front entrance. Watch some of your favorite science faculty take to the floor, performing impressive dance routines.

Representing the College of Science are three professors from the Department of Biochemistry & Biophysics: Kevin Ahern, Andy Karplus and Phil McFadden.

Although this fundraising event is free, audience members are encouraged to “vote” for the winners at 50 cents/vote with an unlimited number of votes). All proceeds going to the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, which raises much-needed funds and awareness from more than 4 million people in over 20 countries to save lives from cancer.

Dancing with the Faculty is jointly hosted between several student groups and organizations in the Colleges of Engineering and Science,. Of course the highlight is the spectacular dancing talents of students and faculty across both college as well as special performance performances from the OSU Elite Dance Team and PowerChord, OSU’s premier co-ed acappella group.
