Boat dance moved

Annual event to take place in fall semester

On September 13, 2012

The annual boat dance hosted by Student Activities Council will be occurring earlier in the year than it has been in previous years. The dance, traditionally held in the spring semester, will be held during the fall semester.
The date was changed over the summer. With both Xavier Fest and a spring concert being held in the spring semester and no fall concert, it was decided by the event chairs, senior Kevin Tighe and sophomore Kaitlin Whelan and the campus traditions chair, sophomore Colleen Reynolds, to move up the date of the dance.
"We usually have a Fall Ball, but we wanted to make things different for this year," Reynolds said.
This year's theme for the dance is Masquerade.
"We went with the Masquerade theme because it can be both fun as well as formal," Tighe said.
The boat dance will take place on a larger boat this year with two levels open to students as opposed to the smaller boat that has been used in previous years. The chairs said that with the bigger boat and hosting the dance in the fall that they hoped for a bigger turnout than in previous years.
There will also be two DJs at the dance, one on each floor.
Tickets for the boat dance will be sold from 6 to 7 p.m. on Sept. 19 outside of Gallagher. The tickets will be $10 each with a limit of two tickets per All Card and 400 tickets will be available. Non-Xavier students are welcome to the dance as long as they attend with a Xavier student.
The boat dance itself will take place on Sept. 28 with buses leaving campus at 6 p.m. Weather is not a factor.
Dinner will be offered at the dance as usual and masks will also be handed out.
"We're really excited for the dance," Whelan said. "It gives students something different to do on a Friday night."
