Terps Shake Off Their Stress #shakeitoffUMD

It’s finals season and the stress on campus is palpable. Some of our energetic and fearless group fitness instructors stood outside McKeldin Library earlier this week and asked passing students to do a good luck dance for Testudo to relieve their stress.

Our friends over at University Libraries spliced all the clips and set it to none other than Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off,” of course. It’s impossible to watch without smiling.

It’s a good reminder for us all to take frequent breaks from studying to regain perspective and have a little fun. Get up and move often — just a little physical activity (a solo dance party in your room totally counts) will make it easier to focus, retain information, and think creatively while you study.

Here are some of our favorite tweets about the video. Share your thoughts with #shakeitoffUMD!
