Here come the Boat Dance

Xavier students attend SAC sponsored, masquerade themed boat dance

On Sept. 28, over 400 Xavier students flocked to the banks
of the Ohio River for a night of sightseeing, dancing and dinner during the Student Activities Council's annual Boat Dance. Buses left from Xavier at 6 p.m. and dropped students off
by the Ohio River, where they boarded a BB Riverboat steamboat. Attendees were served dinner and encouraged to dance as the steamboat chugged along the Ohio River, passing by downtown Cincinnati twice before returning to the dock.
Xavier's Boat Dance occupied two floors of the three-tiered
boat, with disc jockeys on each floor. Students were also able to take pictures in a photo booth and walk around the deck for sightseeing along the river. Sophomore Colleen Reynolds, chair of the Campus Traditions Committee of SAC, was pleased with the turnout. "I could not be happier with the way Boat Dance went this year," she said in an email. "We were fortunate enough to have perfect weather, and I was happy to see students representing all classes." Senior Kevin Tighe, one of two event chairs for Boat Dance, was similarly satisfied. "It was fun, well behaved and ran smoothly," he said. Tighe added that increased interest from previous years prompted SAC to build the size of the event. SAC accommodated twice the amount of students this fall, selling over 415 tickets compared to the 250 sold last spring. "Because the event has always been such a success, [this year] we wanted to expand it for more to enjoy," Tighe said. Sophomore Kaitlin Whelan, the second event chair for Boat Dance, shared Tighe's feelings. "I really feel that we brought a great event to more students," Whelan said.
