On the evening of April 30, more than 200 Furman University students descended on Falls Park in downtown Greenville to perform in a fun and entertaining Furman Flash Mob. The participants, most of whom were wearing their finest purple, included Furman president Rod Smolla and the Paladin mascot.
The group danced to Cee-Lo Green's "Forget You," and the event was coordinated by Furman seniors Dan Weidenbenner and Julianna Battenfield. Furman videographer Becky Lane filmed the event.

This was going on in Falls Park in Greenville on Saturday as my niece, Sarah, was having pictures taken before prom... they didn't know anything like that was going to be going on when they went there, but really enjoyed seeing it. Pretty cool! My (now 22 year old) daughter, Whitney, used to be a cheerleader for the Furman Youth Association, and my Dad went to Furman University in the 50's and received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration there. Great job, Furman... FU! ;)
Here are a few pics my sister took from where she was, of the flash mob...
