Student Life at Montclair (SLAM)—the SGA Programming Board—will host its annual Spring Bash on Friday, April 8, with its theme being Pure Imagination. Referred to as “a night full of food, dancing, pictures, friends and fun,” Spring Bash is a formal celebration held towards the end of the semester before the final examination period.
This year’s theme, which comes from a song featured in the 1971 film “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory,” has garnered a mostly positive reaction on campus, due in part to the film’s popularity amongst the student body.
For Gabriely de Almeida, a senior International Business major, the theme brings a feeling of nostalgia. “I love the theme for the Spring Bash. I love the idea of a dance based on one of my favorite movies,” said de Almeida.
Adriana Messyasz, a senior biology major, had a different reaction, but expressed a similar enthusiasm for the theme. “I honestly am focusing on other stuff, and I’m not interested in [Spring Bash], but [the theme] seems pretty cool. If there is lots of chocolate and candy, that’s a plus.”
Although the date, time and theme of the event were emailed out on Wednesday, its location has yet to be revealed and the venue is only to be disclosed upon arrival at the site. For this reason, transportation will be provided to and from the venue.
Spring Bash tickets go on sale via HawkSync Thursday, March 3 and will be selling for $40 to students and $60 to non-students.
