Every year on campus there is a fall formal and a winter gala. This year however, the dates have just been switched so that there will be a fall gala and a winter formal. The fall gala, sponsored by student activities and the Campus Activities and Programming Board, will be held this Saturday, Nov. 3, in the Grace Hall Atrium from 9:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. and admission is free.
The dance will be semiformal which means skirts or casual dresses for the ladies and dress pants and a shirt and tie for the guys. All students must bring college ID and anyone who is 21 or older must bring a driver’s license or valid ID to be able to drink. If anyone wants to bring a guest, make sure that they bring ID and are signed in by a Cabrini student. There will be a keg provided for those who are 21 and older beginning at 10:30 p.m. and food and non-alcoholic beverages will be there for everyone else.
Katie Arnold, co-chair of CAP Board, said that there was a committee organized that voted on the theme for the dance. The theme that got the most approving response was Mardi Gras. The atrium will be decorated by the CAP Board and festive beads will be provided for attendees.
CAP Board Advisor Tricia Arnold and Mary Beth Horvath, Coordinator of Student Activities, helped to coordinate the event. The gala should be a good time and everyone is encouraged to come out and dance the night away. Remember, nothing extravagant is necessary this time. Everyone can save the prom dresses and suits for the SGA sponsored winter formal a little later on. For right now, just ditch the jeans and sweatpants and come out to the atrium for some Mardi Gras fun.
