Members of the Illinois State University (ISU) Chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) traveled back in time Friday, Sept. 26. The theme of the night was glory days, and members were encouraged to dress up as high school stereotypes. Costumes included jocks, cheerleaders, goths, nerds and a variety of more creative ones. Over the course of the night, members traveled to three apartments decorated as a classroom, pep rally and prom.
The first apartment was the classroom, complete with a chalkboard and school supply cutouts on the wall. The “Mean Girls” inspired “Burn Book” excerpts completed the theme. Everyone then moved to the second apartment, which was decorated like a pep rally. Prom court nominations were announced and voting for prom king and queen began. The last apartment was prom and included a photo booth. At this apartment, the votes were counted, and prom king and queen were announced. Seniors Nick Hebert and Analia Voss were crowned king and queen of glory days. The evening provided a social, less formal opportunity for members to spend time together and get to know each other while reminiscing about their glory days.
