This month was certainly a blast in
the Music and Dance LLC. On February 10th the Black and Gold Committee
hosted its first annual Peck Prom. The Peck Prom was open for all students in
the Peck School of the Arts. The theme for the prom was 80’s, 90’s and early
2000s music.People were highly
encouraged to dress up in themed costumes. Many of the residents from the LLC
dressed up with big teased hair, bright colored clothes and makeup in order to
create the perfect costume. The prom was hosted in the Kenilworth building so
we all took the shuttle over.At the
prom there was also a button making center, a fun photo booth, food, and a make
your own trophy. Even though the DJ didn’t get the memo of the 80s/90s/2000s
theme, a lot of people requested the good classics. We all danced and jammed
out to Smash Mouth’s All Star. This song is become the theme song for the LLC.
Residents always share funny memes about the song.
Another thing that happened this
month was that the sophomores had a big paper due for their music history class
this past Friday. A lot of the residents formed paper writing groups and tried to
motivate each other to get it done on time. A big group of us went to the
library on Tuesday to try to get some research done and to find some good sources.
Since the paper was wrapped up on Friday, every one was feeling a lot of stress
lifted off their shoulders. Later that Friday evening a group of residents went
to the UWM orchestra concert to see their follow residents/friends perform.
All in all, it was a productive
month, socially and academically.
