Approximately 800 people are expected to attend the first Senior Gala at the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art on April 16 to celebrate the 2016 senior class at Cornell, according to Bobby Dougherty ’16, co-chair of Senior Days. “Every year, students look forward to their last semester and all the fun events to commemorate senior year,” Dougherty said. The Cornellian Senior Gala is supposed to be a wonderful way to celebrate four great years on campus in the classy setting of the Johnson Museum.”
The black-tie event will feature three cash bars, catered food, live jazz performances, three DJs, and two dance floors, according to the event’s Facebook page. Seniors and their guests will walk down the “Red Carpet” when they arrive, greeted by a jazz quartet, Dougherty explained. “As people walk throughout the museum, there will be catered spreads and bars, and they can also enjoy many beautiful art pieces ranging from a laser light exhibit to ink painting from Southeast Asia,” she said.
