The Great Gatsby Formal

Imagine a gorgeous two-level ballroom at Grand Rapids’ elite Amway Grand hotel, packed with almost 500 Calvin students dressed in their Roaring ’20s finest. The number of sparkly objects in the room is mind-boggling, fitting perfectly with the venue and music played by a live jazz band. The event is almost as sumptuous as the Baz Luhrmann movie itself, just without all the added drama. Freshman Brooke Bonnema couldn’t wait to attend the event: “The Gatsby formal is by far the most brilliant thing Calvin has put together,” Bonnema said.
