After flocking to stores to buy their last minute corsages and dresses, students arrived at around 8 p.m. on Jan. 27 draped in formal attire to the Peninsula Italian Social Club for a night of dancing, conversation and a little bit of sweat.
“Before we as a cabinet even begin working on the event the venue has already been picked by administration,” senior class president Eliza Van Hamel Platerink said. “But the whole cabinet collectively chooses a theme which this year was Space Jam: an under the stars-esque theme that we ran with.”
Platerink and the rest of the senior cabinet worked with a designer and a decorator that implements the ideas they put on paper. Along with that, they hired a photographer to take pictures of people and their dates.
“As a cabinet we like to have a lot of fun,” Platerink said, “and we like to throw ideas back and forth and make the best out of the opportunity to make a formal event with a fun aspect as well.”
