Syracuse, NY– One of the events the senior class always looks forward to: 100 Nights, hosted by the Le Moyne Student Planning Board, or LSPB, which notes 100 nights until graduation. The celebration took place at the Syracuse Marriott on Friday, February 10th from 8-12pm offering drinks, snacks, music, and celebrating with friends.

The event requires a lot of planning. Emily Wescott, member of LSBP shared the indepth work involved in making the night as special as it could be. For starters, planning began way back in September to ensure that the Marriott could accommodate the event. The beautiful lighting at the venue was also a result of the dedication provided by LSPB and class representatives. 

The star of the show, though, was the photo booth, which allowed seniors to commemorate their time here at Le Moyne with those who helped them through the highs and lows. LSPB Executive Board members also helped seniors remember the special night with Polaroid photos. 

LSPB worked hard to ensure transportation would be provided, specifically so seniors didn’t have to find a way to get to and from the venue themselves– and so they could simply enjoy their night. Shuttles began picking students up at 7 p.m. from James Commons, with continuous pick up and drop off throughout the duration of the dance.

The Executive Board members of LSPB created centerpieces, purchased and arranged balloons, as well as advertised the event to the senior class. Making an event as extravagant as 100 Nights couldn’t have been done without thorough planning and behind the scenes work.

The Class of 2023 was lucky to experience the celebration because of the pandemic. Last year, the Class of 2022 was the first class in two years to have the opportunity to celebrate with its class at 100 Nights due to Covid protocol. 

Senior Communications major, Aly Blair, shared, “It was so nice being able to meet fellow classmates who I haven’t seen since my first year on the Heights.” The event allowed students to mingle for, possibly, the first time in a long time–with Covid restrictions inhibiting much of the normal social scene on campus.

Seniors have worked hard to get to this point. Having a night to celebrate with friends is a great way to ring in the last days here on The Heights. Seniors–make the most of your final few months here, it will be over before you know it. Hang out with friends, celebrate the little things, and take care of each other.
