It’s sort of a 90’s theme around here lately (in case you didn’t know Mis turned 90 last week!) and the dance is 90’s themed so be prepared for some full on throwbacks! Homecoming weekend is already here though! As always there’s a bunch of events planned for the weekend that you should definitely plan on attending! Here is all of them day by day!
Thursday October, 2
SOAR is doing a paddling series at Frances Slocum from 4:30-6:00 pm. There’s also a 90’s theme dance taking place at 9 in the dining hall. Can you say totally tubular?! (that might be a saying of a different era now that I think about it!) Anyways, you should definitely plan on attending and wearing some cool outfits like we did back in the day and of course jamming out to some Britney and Smash Mouth! In case you’re drawing a blank on what to wear here’s some ideas:
For the girls: think Sabrina the Teenage Witch meets Hit Me Baby One More Time!
You can definitely rock this more grunge-like look or the school girl look, but don’t forget the scrunchie!
For the guys: think Fresh Prince meets Slater (Saved By the Bell!)
Just think colorful and mismatched!
You will definitely also need a playlist to get you in the 90s mindset (Pandora also has 90’s stations that I listen to all the time)! Here’s a list of some songs to prepare you for the flashback:
