Toga Party Caps off Welcome Week Celebrations – The Lance
This Friday finale was a hail to the Romans! Students took their change to party in Roman style with handmade togas and danced the night away. The Lance covered the event and wrote an article:
‘It’s Friday night,’ said 17-year old Aramis Stavridis, simply explaining why he attended the event. He was waiting in line along with his friends, each of them playing well to the night’s theme. He notes it only took him 10 minutes to put the outfit together.
‘Just took a bedsheet, folded it around, threw it on and pinned it,’ he said.
A long standing tradition within the university itself, the Toga Party was under full swing the evening of Sept. 9, where the vast majority of students attended in full costume, while others wore just enough white to blend in with the crowd. The party is the last one to be held in the UWSA Tent before it becomes dismantled and gears become shifted to readings, assignments and mid-terms.
Always an event to mark the conclusion of Welcome Week, no exception was made as a way to show appreciation towards university culture.
