That's right. No drinking. No twerking. No fun.
But this isn't the first time a Historically Black College/University has tried to put an end to the rump-shaking dance moves. Late in August, Hampton University announced that the institution had banned twerking on its campus. And Spelman College is no stranger to pumping the brakes on music and artists who may incite twerking. Rapper Nelly canceled a fundraiser at Spelman after his infamous "Tip Drill" video was not well received by students in 2004.
Morehouse College has been working to ban sexually suggestive and degrading music from its campus as well. At a recent town hall meeting, the school's president, John Wilson, said: "All misogynistic music should be banned from public spaces on campus because it misrepresents Morehouse's institutional values and sends the wrong message to potential donors."
Students created an uproar on Twitter and questioned if the festivities would even be worth attending. But just as expected, there was plenty of drinking and a lot of twerking. Some students even took it upon themselves to host an onstage twerking contest.
After the celebration, Twitter and Instagram were flooded with pictures from the festivities. Some of the photos may cause administration to wonder if they should have implemented stricter restrictions on drinking. But until then, turn down for what?

Forgot to mention that Iggy did a stellar show @ the Agora in the spring…
Their fees were onerous, to say the least. $16 per ticket for "convenience," and it's…
