Deluca hypnotizes Rice Auditorium

The Student Activities Council hosted hypnotist Tom Deluca Sept. 9 in Rice Auditorium.

Students watched as their fellow classmates were hypnotized by Deluca, who selected students from the audience to perform embarrassing stunts, such as dance, talk in various languages and give CPR to “fruit friends.”

In one crowd favorite, Deluca made a student believe a sponge was 600 pounds and whenever a trigger word was used, the student could not lift the sponge.

Although many of the stunts were embarrassing for those participating, it was an enjoyable night for the whole crowd.
