Communications Freeze?

Today  the Holman Library hosted an unusual  group project for a GRCC Communications class, an experiment called a "Freeze mob". At 2:30 this afternoon, triggered by a certain sound, the students who had gathered  in the library froze in random positions without moving for 90 seconds: 

Students Julia, Karen, Marcus, Matt, and Katie were organizers and participants, with the event being recorded for in class evaluation. 

While a number of students were surprised and confused, some walked by the immobile students without seeming to notice anything amiss!  A novel assignment for Kathleen Loucks Communication class, the "Freeze Mob"  was a surprising break in the busy routine of study and research that takes place daily in your Holman Library.
