A group of Boston College students dancing in the BC Shake It Off video.
Boston College received high praise for their most recent music video which featured a combined total of more than 1,000 BC students and faculty dancing to the hit song “Shake It Off.” Grammy-winning artist Taylor Swift congratulated the Jesuit school via Twitter for the video, which was used by the school’s C21 Center to encourage BC students and faculty members to “shake off” their worries, fears, and insecurities.
The video was produced by BC students John Walsh ’15 and John Campbell ’17.
