The first-ever Colgate Senior Ball was held this year on February 1st and, without a doubt, the event was a smashing success.
Over 400 students joined in the revelry, dressed to the nines, and ready to mingle and dance. In addition to a beautiful string trio that played as people arrived, the jazz band, No Standards, tore it up, with a wonderful guest appearance from the talented singer, Caitlin Grossjung '13. The event successfully showcased the amazing talents of Colgate students through the live performances, astute social skills, and strong ability to reach the bar just in time to keep their glasses full. In addition to the bars, the Colgate Inn kept two Belgian Chocolate Fondues flowing and passed around a plethora of delicious hors d'oeuvres which people enjoyed around centerpieces of raw asparagus and live goldfish in mason jars (designed by Marvin Vilma '14). With many new Facebook profile pictures sure to be uploaded soon, we can all look back on the event with pride in Colgate's ability to step up with class and hope that this is the start of a strong tradition that will continue for years to come.
Konosioni wishes to thank member Wiggs Civitillo '13 for spearheading this event and making it such a resounding success!
