The event you have been waiting all year for is finally here! This Friday, February 3, 2017 is the annual Commons Ball from 9p.m. until 12a.m. It will be an event you do not want to miss and here are the top 5 reasons why:
5. The decor
Not only will there be ice sculptures, but there will also be snapchat filters and perfect instagram photo opportunities against photo backdrops. The decorations in the Commons Center are going to be something you do not want to miss. Do not be that person who wakes up on Saturday morning and sees all of the posts on social media of everyone having fun and wish you had gone!
4. The dancing
Put on your dress or your suit and tie and come hit the Commons dance floor! The presidents will be out there busting moves, so be sure to join them in dancing to the latest hits.
3. Commons Western Room
The Commons Center will be transformed into something you have never seen before, and you will most likely not even be able to recognize it. One feature will be the Commons Western Room, which will include a mechanical bull and kareoke.
2. The food
I am sure you have heard from upperclassmen about the Commons Ball food, and if you have not, be sure to ask. The catering is amazing and will include duck prosciutto wrapped cantaloupe, beef carpaccio with baby arugula, parmigiano reggiano and pomegranate seeds, strawberry avocado pearl cous cous salad with lime vinaigrette, chocolate mouse in tuxedo cup topped with chocolate bowties, and more. That definitely sounds better than any other schools’ meal plan!
1. Justin Timberlake may be there
For weeks, the Commons House Public Relation Chairs have been tagging Justin Timberlake in Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter posts in hopes of getting him to come perform at the big event. So, if he does come you will want to be sure to be there too. To increase the chances be sure to tag him and use the hashtag #getJTtoVandy!
