Last weekend, our 300 piece marching band performed and danced THRILLER (http://blogs.citypages.com/ctg/2008/09/u_of_m_marching.php).

I once pee'd in the middle of campus while drunk. I think that makes my campus pretty cool.

among the many reasons why the University of California (Berkeley for those of you not sports oriented) is far superior -

along the same lines of your band idea... (we admittedly have a lot of other things to go on too but i'll just stick to this)

Video Game Show (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8QNI3W8UB-s)
Re-done due to popular Demand - Right Side Up (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E2UaVcZPsYU&feature=related)

oh yeah... and the student section definitely lets out a cheer when the triforce forms. :)

EDIT: Things will look upside down because they aimed this show at the students and its being filmed from the alumni side but... still shows its awesomeness :)
EDIT2: Btw I keep forgetting to mention this... 300 people thriller was pretty awesome too

Last year, my Uni in Exeter was one of the coolest. The one cool thing is that it was the Uni where JK Rowling studied, and my tutor was her old teacher.

The uni Im in now (Avignon, France) is kinda crappy, apart from being an old building, and a uni since the 1500s or something... And it used to be a mental hospital before being a uni....

That had better not be directed at me.

We did a video game show a few years ago, where the members formed a huge Mario and made him running and jumping over a goomba. Edit: are you actually a student at Berkley?

That reminds me... it also makes my Uni awesome that Tay Zonday goes there, even if he's so last year. ;)

Nice - giant Mario over a goomba is pretty cool too. I Was a student at Berkeley. Graduated in 2007. Now I'm in Irvine for graduate school (but I still go back for football games and various other reasons) and they don't do cool things like this haha.
Then again, when your mascot is the anteater I wouldn't expect much from the school hahahaha.

hahah wow. that's pretty bad. we love our mascot, despite how ridiculous he is. we're the Gophers, and the guy who designed our mascot had never seen a Gopher before... so he's modeled after a chipmunk. He looks better now than he did at first, but he still is pretty chipmunky. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/2/20/GoldyGopher.png/150px-GoldyGopher.png

I wish I hadn't quit marching band... we didn't get to do the thriller dance while I was a member. Fuck my life.

haha yeah we played you guys a few years back in berkeley - I remember the golden gophers :).

In fact, there's a strong chance I'll head out there next year for Cal's game against you! But for now I focus on this season...

In France too, when you have a grant! I only pay medical services for my whole uni year (4.57 euros) And as I don't have a job and such, I get a grant : about 400 euros each month, and I don't need to pay it back, it's like being payed to go to school, instead of paying uni fees! how awesome is that? Of course, the money is to help pay rent and buy food by I still usually have loads of money for extra things and end the year with some money left...

And of course all other education before Uni is free.

He's right. I'm a sophomore at Irvine, it's pretty boring. Then again, it's located in the middle of Orange County... so don't expect too much. All we get is some dork in an Anteater costume to dance around during "Spirit Week." Well, him and Ann Coulter. Ick.
