Roaring ’20s, a roaring success

One of the most highly anticipated events of the year, this year’s Spring Formal did not disappoint.

IMG_5936“Spring Formal was awesome!” said junior Tracy Lee. “The price I paid for the tickets was worth it because the venue was super ritzy and beautiful. I was very impressed and had a good time dancing the night away.”IMG_6046

Most students agreed with Lee. Union Station, a popular venue for weddings and special events, added a touch of class to the event.

SPUD socials coordinator Megan O’Brien said that 716 tickets to the dance were sold.IMG_6053

“The event fulfilled my expectations—which were very high, mind you,” she said. “I enjoyed hosting SPUD’s Spring Formal 2013 at Union Station—the beautiful venue came to life at night with music, lighting, and dancing.”

The renowned Wolfgang Puck catered the event, serving delicious hors d’oeuvres and drinks. The first 100 students (who were of age, of course) got a free drink.Picture 1

“The food was delicious,” said O’Brien, “Thank goodness waiters brought the food, like mini chicken and waffles drizzled with jalapeño honey, around to people in the ballroom.”IMG_6017

Students eagerly stood in line for the Student Government-sponsored photo booth, which O’Brien said was a huge success.

“Unfortunately [that] means that the lines were atrocious,” she joked, “Yet worth it.”

DJ Glenn Roush made sure that the dance floor was never empty. Junior Jessica Chavira wished there had been a IMG_6054bigger variety in the music played, but still enjoyed her time on the dance floor.

“The music was the typical top ‘40s stuff,” she said, “But it still provided entertainment for the occasional bump and grind.”IMG_5962

Now that Spring Formal has passed, it’s time to exchange those dapper suits and fancy dresses for textbooks and essays. But don’t be too sad—there’s always next year.IMG_6050
