Glitz and glam filled the night as members of the Illinois State University Chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America enjoyed a “Great Gatsby” themed social Friday, Nov. 7. The 1920s-themed social included a roaring night of dancing and socializing, while members did not hold back when dressing for the occasion in feathers, sequins, and bowties.
Members entered the world of “Gatsby” with elements including streamers, sparkles, and music from the film. Members recognized the development committee for its hard work with decorations and party favors that were just as flashy and dazzling as the 1920s.
Attendees had a great time and enjoyed the themed social. According to Andrea Casali, sophomore and Humane Society of Central Illinois account executive, “It was fun to get all ‘gatsbied out’ and socialize with other members outside of weekly Chapter meetings. The development team did such a great job with the theme! Seeing everyone in feathers and sequins was the highlight of my weekend.”
This fall social was a fun way for members to network with each other and left many encouraged to attend future socials. The theme was a fun opportunity for members to dress up and get a little taste of the “Gatsby” lifestyle.
