A night fit for an angel

Formal season officially concluded on Friday night when Pi Beta Phi was the last sorority to host their “Masquerade”. Many of the women donned elegant dresses while the men looked dapper in their matching ties. A few of the angels hid mysteriously behind masks to celebrate the theme, while a couple of the dates wore cowboy hats. Nonetheless, it was a night remembered by most.

Instead of a horse-drawn carriage, two school buses transported each attendee to Soangetaha Country Club in nearby Galesburg. Once there, guests were delighted to find bathrooms with full-sized lounges, the perfect hangout place to catch your breath between songs. But what really made the guests happy was the delicious food.

Senior Jayna Kozlowski, a GDI, was a part of the evening, thanks to her roommate and friend, Junior, Pi Phi, Rachel Boyles. Kozlowski and Boyles both said, “The food was really good!” Jayna elaborated, “It was way better than the cafe food.” Senior María Magallón, a vegan, was ecstatic that the country club prepared such a dish for her food preference.

As the night continued, the dance floor became filled with members young and old, circling up to show their best moves. A photo station was set up in the corner for anyone to capture the moment, but more so the outfits of the evening. Libations were sold from a very kind bartender, and the night went off without a hitch.

It would not have been possible without the Vice President of Event Planning, freshman Hannah Decker. Her attention to detail, with masks and beads on each table, did not go unnoticed. And neither did the DJ! But if you had to ask any Pi Phi what the best part of the night was, almost in unison, you can expect to hear “Margaritaville.” Taco Bell was devoured afterward, and pictures filled Instagram the next day, true signs of a really good time.
