Happy FriYAY, Oles!

Here’s hoping you’re as excited/pumped/LITERALLY SCREAMING INSIDE as I am for #STOCHELLA later today. Whether it’s seeing Ra Ra Riot in concert or hearing DJ Randy Clay throw down some sweet tracks, I haven’t been this stoked about something since possibly ever.

As you may have noticed, the weather looks like it wants to rain on our parade (more like #StormCHELLA, amirite), so we’ve moved a few things around. No need to panic people, because all your fave STOCHELLA activities are still happening! Check out the event schedule and locations for today’s shenanigans:

The fun starts at 4:00PM so the hype starts RIGHT NOW.

Join me in jamming to Bad Advice Club and Alexandra Hemmer in the Lion’s Pause- the weather’s not cooperating, so they’re just going to be bringing the heat on the Mane Stage.
Get #artsy with BORSC and their massive mural while the artists are rocking the Mane Stage.
Snag this year’s coveted VN T-shirt and write notes of affirmation to go on Cage Cups for fellow Oles with Volunteer Network in the Pause
Head to Crossroads to have your fortune told by world famous fortune tellers. I’ve been told Pause pizza is in my future and who am I to argue with the experts???
Right next door REAL artists will be doing REAL caricatures and it’ll all be very REAL and legitimate I promise.
Is it cornhole or beanbag toss? Hit up some PAC Yard Games and let’s settle the debate once and for all.
There‘s no way to feel meloncholy after challenging your friends to a watermelon eating contest. Join SAC for intense fruit eating, limbo, and GUESS THAT SQUISH (intriguing, I know) in Crossroads.
You’re just gonna have to show up to figure out what Tim Talks is #keepthemysteryalive.
Take down your friends in a massive inflatable obstacle course on Buntrock Plaza (or in the Sun Ballroom if it’s still raining at 4)
ALL DAY. Everywhere. HAMMOCKS. Snap a pic today and post it to any social media platform with the hashtag ‪#‎STOCHELLA‬ to win your very own branded hammock for chilling on the quad when it’s not literally flooding. #blessed

From 4:30 to 7 (don’t be the person who tries to get in at 7:27. You know who you are.), Before DJ Clay starts serving some sick beats, he’ll be serving dinner picnic-style in Stav with disposables, so grab some food and getcho self down to the Pause to #stoCHILLa. I hear there will be tables galore to eat at.

At 6pm it’s raining it’s pouring but no one should be snoring through Ra Ra Riot’s killer set, coming soon to a Mane Stage near you. Bring your food, bring your friends and bring your excitement because IT’S STILL ON and BETTER THAN EVER. Afterwards, grab S’MORE FUN out on the Buntrock Plaza and warm up around the fire.

Check in for ADC’s Electric Run starts at 9pm and the infamous DJ RANDY CLAY will begin conducting a truly lifechanging auditory experience to kick off the event at 9:30 (he briefly mentioned playing country and no one knows if he’s joking or not, so show up to find out. Man’s a loose cannon). Same-day registration, check-in, and #swag pick up (did someone say free hats oh wait YES WE DID) will all be in the Boe/Buntrock Connection.

Finally, the most talked about event since the release of Beyonce’s LEMONADE, the Highlighter Dance starts at 10pm tonight in the Pause. Neon attire is highly recommended, and if you get there early enough, grab one of SAC’s exclusive Tank Tops.

LET #STORMCHELLA2K16 BEGIN,
