In Love With Winter Fantasia

Upon first meeting me, you probably wouldn’t think that I love to dance. Don’t be fooled by my quiet nature and calm attitude, I like to bring it to the dance floor.

Which made Winter Fantasia the Night of nights for me. Do you need more reasons to love it? I have them: awesome food, great friends, beautiful venue, and of course the dancing. Here are some photos from my night so that you can get a better look!

First, here’s what it looked like. Beautiful, right? It felt like a prom, but better because it was with Hope 🙂 We walked in and right away I was super impressed. According to one of my cluster-mates, it’s one of the nicest hotels in the area, so it’s super cool that we got to go there. A few of us went exploring and rode the elevator up to the top and saw all of Grand Rapids!

Next are my two photos dedicated to the food at Fantasia: you were delicious, thank you. There were small appetizers, like cheese and crackers, and spinach dip with pitas and chips. There were also plenty of desserts. They had cupcakes, mini cut cakes (like in the photo), chocolates, giant cookies, small cookies, and chocolate covered strawberries.

And finally, a few of the people I got to spend the night with! Dancing with them all was the best! I have this theory that if you dance once a day, you’ll be in a better mood. It has something to do with letting go and just being yourself, I think. That’s why things like Fantasia are the best!

Winter Fantasia is just one of the many events that our Student Activities Committee puts on! Personally, I think that they do a great job at all of them, but this was my favorite so far. I probably say that about every event. Oh well.

Thanks for reading!
