On Thursday, April 20, the Stockton Entertainment Team invited students to attend a masquerade ball in the Campus Center Event Room to end the semester. About 70 Stockton students gathered together for an evening of fun.

The ball consisted of dancing, a wide variety of food, music, and a Photo Booth setup. There were a variety of masks ranging from the standard ones given out by SET, including unique animal-inspired ones.

“We wanted to put on a large formal event for students, especially with finals [approaching],” said SET representative Brant Knopp. SET wanted to provide students with the opportunity to unwind before a long week of final exams.

The ball lasted three hours and there was no specific agenda; just a simple excuse to enjoy the time there and meet new people. The event was open to all members of the Stockton community. The room was decorated with balloons and green ribbons.

For more information, the Stockton Website has a calendar that indicates other upcoming events.
