SnoDaze might seem even snowier this year, as Student Council embraces a winter-themed dance, according to senior Student Council member Eric Hendricks.

Hendricks said he thought the theme would be fun to embrace the winter.

“It will be a nice twist to something that we all see day to day, putting it in a different light, or dance lights,” Hendricks said.

According to senior Student Council president Jessica Schmidt, the dance will take place at the Medina Ballroom.

“It’s a very simple, traditional space but a large area to accommodate a lot of students, which is great,” Schmidt said.

Schmidt said other than the venue, the typical events leading up to SnoDaze will be similar to past years.

“There isn’t a whole lot that will be new,” Schmidt said. “ We (Student Council) are trying to keep it traditional this year,” Schmidt said.

According to adviser Sarah Lindenberg, SnoDaze typically does very well in attendance.

“SnoDaze is typically our most successful all-school dance besides Prom,” Lindenberg said.Screen Shot 2016-02-16 at 1.03.29 PM

Although junior Eric Manuel attended SnoDaze in previous years, he said this year not even the theme entices him.

“The last few years (the dance) was very underwhelming and the music selection they hadwas difficult to dance to,” Manuel said. “ I am not going to spend $25 to play card games with my friends.”

Sophomore Rebeca Garcia has never attended SnoDaze but said she plans on going for the new experience.

“I will go to see what it’s like, have a new experience and socialize with friends,” Garcia said.

Hendricks said Student Council takes ideas from students, but keeps some aspects of the evening the same.

“We will be getting song suggestions from the student body for the dance,” Hendricks said.

Tickets will be sold in the lunch room during all four lunches beginning with early-bird prices for $20 Feb. 10 and 11. Regular ticket sales begin Feb. 16 and continue through Feb. 19 at $25 a ticket.

The dance will take place at 8 p.m. Feb. 20. Buses load from the activity doors.
