Spring is here and prom season is officially upon us! With the last week of school for our Class of 2022, what a way to end off the week with prom on Saturday, May 7, at the Hilton in downtown Chicago.

Many seniors are excited for the event, buying lavish tuxedos to look their best for the special occasion.

Senior Danny Veal said, “I’m hyped up for prom, I got, by far, the flyest fit for the dance and it’s gonna be a night to remember for sure.” Veal is one of several seniors who have been excited for the dance for weeks and can’t wait for the fun night together with their friends.

The Hilton is one of the nicest hotels in the Chicago downtown area. With the dance taking place in one of their beautiful ballrooms, the venue is set to be a night packed with memories to last a lifetime.

With over 140 couples going to the big event, the stakes are set to dance the night away. Senior Mike Helson said, “I have been practicing my dance moves for weeks now.

From about 7:30 to midnight, the party is on. We seniors are closing out the school year in a big way. I, for one, can’t wait for Prom and can’t wait to see my fellow Crusaders there.
