One of the few perks of being a senior is that the Senior Committee puts on a big ‘ol party for us when we have 200 and 100 days left until graduation. Maybe also at 50 and 25, we’ll see. To counter the depression caused by the prospect of impending doom / real life, seniors take full advantage of three free drinks and the pleasure that comes along with being exclusive.
The 200 days party which happened approximately 100 days ago was quite an event. The party featured live music from The Milk Chocolate Project, made up of Mohan Fitzgerald ’14, Innocent Tswamuno ’15, Tito Son ’14.5, and Max Eingorn ’14. They’ll be back tonight featuring Caroline Joyner ’15. After the music with instruments, there will be a DJ from Top Hat Entertainment. We’ll see how they compare to the tunes from Mariam Khan ’16 who DJed at the 200 days party.
David Cannistra, General Manager of Retail Food Operations, had this to say:
Having done almost a dozen of these events, it seemed to be the most well attended and people seemed to enjoy the night. We had no major problems with alcohol with any students and it just seemed like it was a good crowd for this one.
