There will be dancing on campus?

Where one failed another attempts to succeed.

Lee University's International Student Fellowship plans on hosting "Salsa in the Park" this Tuesday, March 24 at 7 p.m. in Alumni Park.

"There will be food and mucho dancing!!!!" reads the description of the event.

All this less than two weeks after a similar university club event, the "Swing-a-thon" was cancelled, because dancing on campus violates student handbook rules:

"Social dancing (sexually suggestive or otherwise) is prohibited and will result in the assignment of accountability hours. Dances of any kind, which are sponsored by University sanctioned organizations, are disallowed."

The event currently has 41 guests confirmed on Facebook, including dean of students Alan McClung and professor Sara Ortega.
