On October 14th, a group of my friends and I attended the International Prom! It was kind of on a whim that we decided to go, so we put on some moderately fancy clothes and got to dancing. I met a bunch of people from a multitude of countries, all of whom were having a great time. I think that this event was pretty neat because, since prom is such an idealized tradition in America and everyone who attended high school here surely attended prom or a similar dance at some point, it really gives people who come here as college students the chance to share a similar experience. It was cool to see the variety of dance styles (boy oh boy was there a variety) and dress, and to just see everyone having a good time.
