Tickets are still available for the 26th annual President’s Ball. For the dance, 1,966 were still available as of press time Wednesday night, and 309 have been sold for the dinner.

Ali Zimmer, Student Senate executive vice president, said this year’s event will feature a jazz band, orchestra quartet, photo booths and a candy station. Drinks will be available for attendees of age.

“Student Senate invites all to attend what is sure to be a great event for first year students and upperclassmen alike,” Zimmer said.

The theme of this year’s President’s Ball, hosted by Grand Valley State University President Thomas J. Haas and Student Senate, is “Wandering in Wonderland.” The winner of the Laker5 competition will also be announced at the dance.

Tickets for dinner and the dance cost $30, and tickets for only the dance are $10. Shuttles will be available to transport students between the Kirkhof Center and DeVos Place. Cocktails will begin at 5:30 p.m., and dinner will follow at 6:30 p.m. with doors closing at 7:15 p.m. Dancing will be from 8:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. with doors closing at 11 p.m.
