Thoughts From the Anti-Prom Committee (April 30, 2013)

Sam Holland

Prom is by far the most dramatic and expensive experience of high school. It’s a financial nightmare. You can tell the school is sweating bullets about it when they try to hire Nickleback for no more than two bucks and a sandwich. It’s close to $15,000 for the school to finance prom. They have  to secure a location, find a performer and hire a photographer to take the pictures that will last a couple years  then get lost in the trash. Obviously prom is a very important.
Last year the location was quite exquisite, in a humid tent outside the science museum in Richmond. How more romantic could prom get than Tuxedo Camping in a tent? Their locations usually don’t disappoint. This year prom is in a much different location. Not outside, but inside the science museum. Maybe next year they can have prom inside a Chucky Cheese… or maybe outside, in the parking lot of Chucky Cheese.
One of the most challenging things about prom is finding entertainment. They’re already spending $15,000, it’s going to be hard to hire someone. Even The Wiggles require money. The most popular thing to do is to hire a DJ, like Oak Knoll Middle School does for their “dances.”
Dancing is one of those few things in life that requires a certain type of person. Now, when I say dancing I’m talking about real dancing, not reproduction. (Notice: The Hawk Eye does not condone/support grinding at prom. It’s a school function, you’re not out clubbin’.)
This year’s prom will be a great prom that will attract many students. That is if you like hot tents, financial debt, and The Wiggles. But, then again, who doesn’t like those things.

  1. Prom is always overhyped to be this huge thing. The experience is what matters the most and you remember being there with your friends and having a good time. Great post
