The more than 300 students who participated provided an interesting retrospective on the '80s. They dressed as the Smurfs, Mr. T., HeMan, Luigi of Super Mario Brothers, and the Rocketeer, among others. One ingenious group of male students attended in the dress of 80-year-old men and sat near the rink and played Chess during the evening.
Students report that the event has much to enjoy. Morgan Wilkinson, a freshman from Florida, said, "Seeing the outfits was my favorite part of the event. I think it's great when peers can get together and act stupid and not care what others think." Brandi Wood, a senior from Gallatin, Tennessee, said, "I saw my favorite '80s trend--the pony tail, off-the-shoulder shirt, and scrunchies. They were everywhere!"
This event was sponsored by the Student Government Association, Jonathan Moore, president.
