Senior ’90s Dance

From Talia Baurer ’15:

ATTN CLASS OF 2015: You are cordially invited to Beckham Hall on Thursday, November 13th to attend a Seniors ’90s Bash! Let’s celebrate the decade that gave us the Internet as we know it, our favorite TV shows to rewatch on Netflix, and us! There will be fancy snacks and various ’90s activities and paraphernalia – basically, we’re going to enjoy being seniors in college by returning to the weird decade in which we were once tiny innocent children. Dress fancy, dress ’90s, or dress BOTH – we know you secretly love the ridiculous prom outfits from every ’90s teen movie. And get excited about infinite #TBT posts.

Date: November 13
Time: 9:30 PM – 1 AM
