For a senior, there are two nights that everyone looks forward to. One is when they are finally allowed to toss their graduation caps in the air. The other is, of course, prom.
This year, the Class of 2013 celebrated prom on Friday, May 17th. Before that day arrived, the students made it their jobs to select their attire and solidify plans between friends.
The weeks leading up the shindig was stressful for everyone taking part in. As Senior Morgan Marant explained it, “That night has to be perfect and I’m going to make it as perfect as possible.”
Before the 8PM start time, Individual groups met up to take pre-prom photographs at one another’s homes, the Art Museum, and other picturesque locations around the city. They then traveled to the Hyatt at the Bellevue Hotel for prom, held in a private ballroom on the nineteenth floor.
The formal dance ended at midnight, but many students continued the fun by heading to the nearest diner, sleeping over for movie marathons and camping under the stars.
When asked what was her favorite part of, Senior Bernicia Guercio, like many other, gave the same answer. “Everything, everything about it was fun.”
