KW: What is the basic info on Spring Formal?
JT: Spring Formal is Saturday, April 18, 8:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. at Ironhorse Country Club.
KW: What led you to choose Ironhorse Country Club as the venue?
JT: The location was chosen because it is reasonably priced but also because it is very pretty, with lots of space to sit, eat and dance.
KW: How was the theme chosen?
JT: We chose this based on the feel of the club and what we thought would be interesting. It was voted on by [the entire] student activities team.
KW: Are you encouraging students to dress up with the theme?
JT: Not really, we want it to be a formal event, not something that you would wear a tux for but more formal than khakis and a button down; maybe throw in a tie or a nice suit.
KW: I saw your golf cart! How effective has that been in spreading the word about Spring Formal?
JT: We are really excited about that. We are really trying to find creative ways to get the word out; this is one of them! People give us crazy looks but at least they remember us!

KW: Will there be any other promotions for Spring Formal that we can look forward to?
JT: Yes … but I can’t reveal them.
KW: Why did Student Activities choose the price of $25 per ticket?
JT: We wanted it to be reasonable for students, but at the same time help us offset some of the costs of the event.
KW: Will tickets be discounted at all?
JT: The tickets are discounted now. The price increases after March 27 (we have a big push for that after spring break). The prices will be one for $30 and two for $ 50. So get ’em now!
KW: Here’s an important one: what type of food will be served?
JT: It is buffet style (food stations) dinner with pasta, Tex-Mex, appetizers, salad and a huge chocolate fountain with fruit and such for dessert.
KW: Is there a dress code? How strict will it be?
JT: There is a dress code: no strapless or backless dresses, [because] we are required to follow PBA guidelines. If anyone has questions, they can contact us in Student Activities.
KW: Is there anything else that students should know about?
JT: Get tickets before the prices go up after March 27! Let us know if you have questions.
