Friday + the highlight- The Drag Show

I am a little late on talking about Spring Fling so I apologize. But I just wanted to take the time to say that the events were a success. Soooooo, YEY !!

Friday afternoon I had to give a tour so I was unable to enjoy the festivities as much as I wish I could. After my tour I rushed over to the South Lawn green to at least catch the end of the Candy Land BBQ. Its never fun to catch the end of something good; everyone is leaving, you’re just getting there- you’re pumped, everyone is sun drunk. No fun. I still managed to find some friends munching away at burgers and enjoying the good tunes played by members of the DJ Club.

Directly after playing in the sun for a bit I made my way to the Scholarship Dinner. All senior recipients of scholarships given by Skidmore Alumni attend a really fancy dinner event. At the reception and dinner, donors are expected to meet scholarship recipients.  In short, its good food, good talk (especially if you have really chatty donors at your table), and heaps of reminders that we should also be generous once we leave Skidmore (Already gave!!).  The two donors at my table were a lovely couple who’s daughter graduated from Skidmore. The wife is also a Skidmore graduate and the husband is currently a professor in the Education Department. It was such a pleasure hearing stories about what is was like to go to school in the 70s- I LOVE LOVE “back in the day” stories ! They are the best ! Especially from a couple who stated they were and still are hippies. I don’t think we could have had anyone better at our table. I could not help but hug and thank them for their time before I made my way to the student center for the DRAG SHOOOWWWWWW !

Busy day, huh ?

The Drag Show is an annual event organized by the Skidmore Pride Alliance. Every year the club tries their best to get a professional drag company to host the drag show. This year they booked Pandora Boxx of Ru Paul’s Drag Race. Don’t know the show? Oooof Its good. Anyway she was knee slapping, “oh dear gosh” hilarious- The best host pride has booked in all four years that I have been here. And the performers themselves were great. I also have never seen such a great turn out for the event. Pride did a fantastic job. The show was such a perfect way for me to get pumped about the rest of my Friday night; THANKS S.P.A !

SPECTRUM: MASQUERADE

Dear Skidmore Pride Alliance,

Spectrum was fantastic. Thank You for such a great time !!

Love, Alta

 

As you can already tell from my “letter” to SPA, Spectrum was such a big hit !

As I was walking up to the venue I could see that Falstaffs* was packed to capacity. Once inside I could see that so many people dressed up and or wore masks. Fabric draped all the walls, flowers hung from columns, and balloons hovered over the crowd. All of which glowed under the black lights. Thanks to DJ Ramses (student, Danl Goodman’ 13) playing the best tracks, everybody busted some sick moves. I, for one, could not stop dancing. Oh, what a night !

Just another fantastic weekend at Skidmore.

 

My housemates and I made our own masks #CTM.

Some more crafty biddies.

Here are some more pictures from last night’s fun !

 

*Before the campus went dry and the drinking age rose to 21+, Falstaffs was an on campus bar. The space is now used for events including dinner, performances, and parties.
