Indiana volleyball takes over classroom to get students excited about games

In an effort to get students to attend their upcoming matches, members of the Indiana volleyball team took a different approach than posting traditional flyers around campus.

Outside hitter Jessica Leish pretended to be in a class taught by a professor who has one major rule in the classroom: If your phone goes off in class, you must pick a song to dance to in front of the entire class.

So when Leish walked up to the front of the classroom, what did she do? She invited the school’s pep band and cheerleaders to help her out. Check it out:

The band proceeded to entertain the class with some tunes while the cheerleaders tossed out T-shirts. And finally, Leisch reminded students to come out to their Big Ten opener on Friday. Indiana begins conference play with a pair of games against Maryland and Rutgers.
