I Was a FAN of Winter Fantasia!

Hello readers! Hopefully you’ve all had a great Thursday and are ready for the weekend to come!

As I look back on last weekend and all the fun had at Winter Fantasia, I can’t help but want to go back! If you know anything about me, I may be a quiet person, but when it comes to dancing, there’s nothing quiet about me. I LOVE dancing!

For those of you that don’t know what Winter Fantasia is, let me explain. Winter Fantasia is a dance, much like high school Homecoming, except a lot more fun. Girls get dressed up and do their hair, and guys…well, I’m not sure what guys do, but they look pretty dapper as well. Usually it’s held at the Amway Grand in downtown Grand Rapids which provides a pretty amazing venue, plus some great food!

Here are my friends and I at Winter Fantasia this year! There was a photo station where everyone could take fun pictures together - it was awesome!

Last year was a different story though. It was my freshman year and my friends and I were so excited for Winter Fantasia. We had heard it was going to be great from the upperclassmen and we were so excited to go and have a blast. However, just a day or two before the big day came, there was a HUGE snow storm. This storm was so bad, in fact, that transportation couldn’t be provided to the Amway Grand! My friends and I were so sad. However, SAC (Student Activities Committee) moved the whole event to the Haworth Inn, right next to Cook Hall, and it turned out to be a great night regardless.

Even though both experiences were a little different, it was still a great experience with my friends dancing the night away!

Hopefully most of you got to experience Winter Fantasia, but if not, there’s always next year! Until next time, readers!
