Spring Ball theme revealed
Following a vote of senior and junior-year students, Assumption College’s annual Spring Ball will be themed “The Great Gatsby.” This year’s event, which is open to juniors and seniors, will take place on April 13 in the Ballroom of the Tsotsis Family Academic Center.
Since the votes for this year’s theme were tailored, the Campus Activities Board (CAB)—the College’s student-run organization that plans different activities and events on and around campus—has been hard at work in the planning process. This year’s Spring Ball will be a little different than in recent years. While the theme is different, so is the location. The Ball will be located in the Tsotsis Ballroom on Campus rather than at the DCU Center downtown, and there will only be about 300 tickets available rather than the unlimited number that has been available previously.
“It is going to be different than how it was in the past since it is in the Tsotsis Ballroom,” said CAB executive Kayli Berardinelli, adding that the “smaller venue” accounts for the limited ticket number. “The Campus Activities Board is hopeful that the turn out will grow more than it has in the past, due to the amount of tickets being less, it’ll be a hot item for sure.”
Berardinelli said that “The Great Gatsby” theme has CAB eager to have the creativity start to flow. She said that CAB’s Spring Ball sub-committee holds meetings every other week to brainstorm ideas. The team has been gathering ideas for “The Great Gatsby” theme both online through Pinterest, and by watching the movie to gather ideas. “CAB is ready to jump at the opportunity to make this ball a great time for all,” she said.
With planning underway and the event less than two months away, Assumption juniors and seniors are eagerly awaiting the fun-filled night. It is currently unknown when tickets for the Spring Ball will go on sale. Tickets are 35 dollars for one and 60 dollars for two.
