The Common Moment 2010 program featured music and movement from around the world. Students embodied the traditions of these cultures through movement, which was accompanied by the traditional sounds of the harvest or festivals celebrating food. The Common Moment featured ensembles representing Ghana and Japan. New students were assigned to a cultural group and spent time rehearsing before performing their dance with their respective musical groups. After the performances, the new students crossed the rope created from their wish ties and formed a human graph representing the results from their FYM survey taken before arriving on campus.
