Last week, the annual MORP dance brought color and excitement around campus. The week leading up to the dance was filled with a colorful spirit week to hype the students up for the dance that took place on Fri. March 2. From Dress Like Yous Hydro to Neon, students showed their spirit around campus. The first 500 students to pre-purchase their ticket got the choice of four neon MORP shirts.

Last years ‘Color Craze’ dance came with some problems and brought more stipulations to the floor this year in the approval process. However, STUGO still had big ideas for the MORP dance and did not let previous problems interfere.

“We’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback so I think it was an ideal success. There were a lot of people there too,” Senior student body spirit coordinator Jackie Gilbert said, “and presale tickets were high.”

As people entered the dance, they were given a neon wristband for the night. Among arriving, there were a series of foodtruck which included a soda truck, a popsicle truck and a chicken truck. This provided students with a nice place to mingle with friends or take a break from the dance. The Softball team was also selling waters.

The attendance for this year’s dance was much higher than last year’s dance and overall had a good turn out.

“We felt that, despite technical difficulties with the DJ’s equipment, students had a great time at the dance,” Student Body Vice-President Cody Soelberg said. “The turn out was fantastic and it was even better than last year’s MORP attendance, which we were thrilled about.”

The theme was definitely apparent in the students attire. People wore bright colored shirt as well as glow sticks to add to the theme of the night. The dance took place in the student parking lot. Half of the parking lot was, however, allotted to students to park. At one end of the designated area for the dance was the foam machine. At the other end was the stage and speakers with Satyr entertainment. With a variety of songs, students were able to dance with their friends and make the most out of the night. Bright lights illuminated across the crowd to really bring the ‘glow’ to the theme.

“Your experience is what you make it,” Gilbert said, “and attitude is everything”

As the year comes to a close, Prom is coming up in the spring. Upperclassman are invited to attend ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ on Saturday April 28. The dance will be 8-11PM taking place at the Mesa Convention Center. Ticket price have yet to be announced and will go on sell after spring break.
