Most upperclassmen are accustomed to seeing the neon signs and glow sticks that accompany National Art Honor Society’s SWITCH Dance, but this year, NAHS is trying something new: a “Hagcoming” theme.
“It’s where a bunch of bands will come and play,” junior Sam Saper said. “We’ll have fun activities around, like a photo booth. I don’t want to give away all the surprises yet.”
Saper said the event will have a concert atmosphere, which she said NAHS planned to attract more students.
“Hopefully, we can get more people to come,” she said. “We needed a better activity for NAHS to have because we were putting our name on SWITCH, but it wasn’t very [well attended]. This can be something everyone will enjoy. Before it was just freshmen being curious, but hopefully all grades will come.”
The dance will be at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 15, with $5 admission. Because it’s held around the Halloween holiday, attendees are encouraged to wear costumes.
“I think fall’s a good time because we wanted to incorporate some activities that we can do,” Saper said. “Also, we feel like fall’s a happy, good time to dance.”
Though the event was originally named Hagcoming, Saper said administration was wary of the name. She said it was named Hagcoming to interest students.
“It’s something different,” she said. “It’s funny and kind of intriguing.”
