My Final Fantasia

On Saturday evening Hope College’s Student Activity Committee hosted Winter Fantasia, a dance that usually occurs at the Amway Grand Hotel in Grand Rapids. However, due to the terrible road conditions this year it was hosted on campus at the Haworth Inn & Conference Center.

Even though the location was not as great as the hotel in Grand Rapids, the dance was still a lot of fun. They had great food and a photo booth for people to take pictures. A large group of students still showed up to the dance. Our house ate dinner together at the City Vu restaurant in downtown Holland. The food was great and we had an awesome conversation at dinner and shared some of our goals for the semester. It was fun all getting ready for dinner and the dance together. I always struggle with doing my own makeup but thankfully I live in a house of girls who can do hair and makeup. I’m a little worried about getting ready by myself after college because any time I have something that I need to look nice for my housemates always pick out my outfit and do my hair and makeup. Hopefully I will learn…

Once we arrived at the Haworth we danced for hours, and I was sore the next day from all of the dancing. It was just a fun night with a great group of people. Last year was my first year attending the dance, but I wish I would have gone all four years. I definitely recommend going to Winter Fantasia with a group of friends. Even if you don’t like dancing there were still plenty of people sitting at tables talking and eating. Plus, the food is always great :]
