Officers review dance

Liz Harter | Tuesday, February 7, 2006

The semester was clearly underway at the Saint Mary’s Board of Governance meeting Monday as officers reflected on the success of the recent all-school formal and shared information about upcoming events.

Saturday’s all-school formal, held at the Palais Royale in downtown South Bend, was the most successful in recent memory, Residence Hall Association President Jackie Wright said.

“For those of you who did not know, this was the first time in Saint Mary’s history that RHA sold out [of tickets for the event],” she said.

The capacity of the facility was 850 people, but RHA chose to limit ticket sales at 830 to alleviate crowding.

“Everything went really well. No one got arrested,” Wright said. “If you want to judge by that, then it was a great dance.”

Mission Commissioner Jenny Robbins thanked Board members for attending the second “Theology on Fire” lecture, which took place last Wednesday in the Saint Mary’s Cyber Cafe. Robbins described the event, which focused on marriage, as “wildly successful” and said there was “standing room only.”

President Kellye Mitros said she is looking forward to the Keenan Revue, which will take place in Saint Mary’s O’Laughlin Auditorium this weekend.

Saint Mary’s Student Government officers have the opportunity to review the program for inappropriate content before opening night.

“This Wednesday is the Keenan Revue review day,” Mitros said. “[Vice President Susan McIlduff] and myself will be attending the last practice … Thursday night starts the performance, and it goes through Saturday.”
