The Honors College is hosting a campus-wide 90s dance Nov. 3 from 8:30-11 p.m. in Bennett gym. There will be a DJ playing an assortment of 90’s music, decorations, a photo booth and refreshments. For those who miss the 90s, now is a chance to relive the glory days.
In previous years, Honors has hosted a masquerade at the Paramount Theatre downtown. This year, event coordinating was left up to the students who decided to mix things up. This is the first time events have been planned by the students and not by a hired worker.
“It’s a first for them, and it is a first for me,” said Claire Johnson, junior Ad/PR major from Abilene.
Johnson is the event coordinator for Honors, and sees her job as an opportunity to create events students will appreciate and attend.
Since the events are now planned by the students, Johnson said it “adds to the affect that this is being done by students, for students.”
The DJ for this event will be ACU student Alec Van Beustring. In the past he has played 80s music and even classic rock, but this is his first time playing 90s music..
Beustring, junior business management major from Houston,Â said the music will include all the tunes students loved listening to while growing up.
This 90s dance is called “Flat Tops and Scrunchies” and will be open to all students, not just Honors. Students are encouraged to dress in 90s attire.
The 90s dance will be a throwback to childhood for all of the 90s kids, and it is a chance to make new memories from old ones.
This is an opportunity for the Honors College to make themselves known and show their fun side to students.
