NYU Silver Students Enjoy a Night at the Silver Ball
February 13, 2014
NYU Silver School of Social Work graduate and undergraduate students, dressed to the nines and with dates in tow, stepped out in style for Saturday’s Seventh Annual Silver Ball. The event, which took place at the Rosenthal Pavilion in the NYU Kimmel Center for University Life, offered spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline and a white-blanketed Washington Square Park, a perfect complement to the night’s theme of “Let it Snow.”
Guests enjoyed a photo booth, extensive hors d’oeuvres, and an open bar while a D.J. spun an eclectic playlist of current and classic hits. The line for the photo booth, which included props and accessories, stayed long throughout the night but became an event in and of itself as students modeled oversized sunglasses and pinwheel hats, snapping selfies and dancing in place.
“It’s been such a joy to see everyone posting their pictures from last night’s Silver Ball, and to have been among all the smiling faces and dancing feet last night,” wrote Graduate Student Association President Jennifer Glass on Sunday morning. The GSA organized the ball, deciding on its theme, choosing entertainment and refreshments, and decorating Rosenthal Pavillion with white wintry floral arrangements and white feather boas.
“My heart is refreshed and buoyed, knowing we are all in this together with a spirit that knows no boundaries,” Glass said. “It was worth every minute of hard work, as everything is.” GSA secretary Margaret Woods echoed the sentiment: “[It was] an evening to remember, filled with good friends, tunes and fun. Social workers are fierce!”
