The current junior class is responsible for organizing the event. Its president, Ramon Rios, said that he and his fellow officers wanted to make this year’s Junior Senior as affordable and classy as possible. “When deciding the theme, Gatsby came to our heads and the look of suits and dresses and an overall fun time came to mind. We then decided that we will make our event with a 1920’s feeling with the bars, dance room, photo areas and more,” Rios said.
Students will also have the opportunity to book a room for up to six people at the DoubleTree. Costs range from $139.95 to $159.95 and will be booked on a first-come, first-served basis.
