Saint Xavier University President Christine M. Wiseman, J.D.'s halftime speech to the homecoming crowd at Bruce R. Deaton Memorial Field was “interrupted” Saturday night when a flash mob of approximately 200 people broke out on the playing field. In the spirit of "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" Wiseman joined the melee until the moment passed just as quickly as it began. To cap off the evening, the SXU Cougar Football team beat Taylor University by a score of 46-21, rounding out a successful homecoming day on the Chicago campus.
The flash mob was organized by SXU’s Office of Alumni and Parent Relations.
