It is common knowledge that high school and Prom go hand-in-hand, and the 2017 Bob Jones Prom is right around the corner, taking place on April first (the choice of date must not be a coincidence), at the Westin Hotel at Bridge Street Town Centre from 8:30 pm to 11: 30.

One might even say that Prom is a tradition of sorts, one for all students to look forward to. Students are brought up on ideas of romantic slow-dances, quiet dinners together either prior to or post-dance, and generally a nice, heart-warming moment right out of a romantic film. For others, however, the idea of Prom is less than appealing. From paying for a suit or dress, the dinner, and merely being in a large, crowded room among strangers, Prom may be stressful, and rightfully so.

“Like most school dance events, I just don’t particularly care. Maybe if I did hold some interest or talent for dancing then I’d attend, but I don’t. Same for Homecoming, so it does nothing for me,” Noah Horne, a graduate of Bob Jones High School, commented. “Though I will say, from my current perspective, that Prom is an event closely tied with ego, and I find ego to be an incredibly toxic thing these days, so I’m also opposed to it on that level.”

On a similar level, Daniel Swinney, a junior, stated, “I don’t dance, and I don’t think it’s a good theme. Social gatherings like that (especially at high school) are bound to be very uncomfortable. Also, Prom is expensive, even at the lowest, tickets are like $25 and I’m using my money for other things.”

Of course, those who wish to attend aren’t in the wrong, and, in fact, are encouraged to go and support the school, as well as spend this time with their friends and significant other. For those going on Saturday, it’s sure to be a remarkable experience.
