Sadies overhaul adds gender blender

Not only do approaching finals occupy the minds of students, but also the loom of Sadie Hawkins, May 3. Although the guys typically experience the anxiety and nausea while asking a girl to formals, the responsibility shifts for one day a year.

“It’s nice not having to figure out who you’re going to ask,” Joshua Palmer, ’08, said. “It gets kind of hard to be original when asking a girl and it gets expensive. It’s good to have a girl do that for a day.”

Couples will meet at Cedar Lanes, 8 P.M. Student leadership announced this year?s theme as ?dynamic duos.? Prizes will be awarded to best-dressed couples.

In an effort to encourage attendance, leadership opened Sadies to groups rather in addition to couples. However, they do not want to discourage girls from asking guys. Groups size, although not set, is approximately 4-8.

?We allowed groups to come this year because we wanted to open up Sadies to more people,” Mitchell Callisch, ?09, said. “However, that doesn?t mean that the girls should not ask the guys.?

Although groups are allowed, they must meet the requirements to come. The group must dress alike and at least one girl and one boy must be present to qualify for a “gender blender.”

“I don’t like the group idea,” Palmer said, “because going in a group does not seem as special. I think going with a date encourages the underclassmen to get out of their comfort zone.”

Pictures will be taken from 8-9 P.M. while bowling will be from 9-11 P.M. As a bowling alternative, there will be game stations set up and snacks will be provided.

Tickets will be on sale every day at lunch for $30 in front of building six.

“I think it’s fine that groups are allowed for Sadies,” Michele Graham, ’11, said. “A lot of people feel awkward with a date, so the group might make it more comfortable for them. I don’t think the format really matters as long as everyone has fun.”
