Revisit prom at R.O. dining

Students will get the chance to experience high school memories Thursday at Stevenson Hall. The reservation only dining at Stevenson Grill, Etc. will be having a prom night-themed meal.

Jamie Huckstead, assistant director of dining at Stevenson Hall, said the customers attending are encouraged to dress up as if it is their prom night. The serving staff at Stevenson will also dress up in formal wear.

Huckstead said Stevenson does not really have decorations to put up, but will have a photographer to take photos of customers who are interested, just as if it was their prom night. She said dining services will also put the photos on their Facebook page.

Huckstead also said while formal wear is encouraged, actual prom clothes are not necessarily expected.

“I think it would be great if someone really went all out and decked themselves out in full prom wear, but I doubt that will happen,” Huckstead said.

Just as normal reservation only dining, Huckstead said students should register online by 3 p.m. Thursday.

Huckstead said she expects a full house for the event, which would be 260 reservations. However, she said after 4:30 p.m. Thursday they will take walk-ins if possible.

She said this is the second year Stevenson Hall has done a prom night-themed dinner. Last year, 25 percent of customers dressed up for the dinner.

Huckstead also said reservation only dining will have more theme nights in the future, including a ’70s theme on April 7.
