This is the first time KU Hillel has hosted a Formal, though the idea has been around for years.“Each time students proposed the idea, we gave them the go ahead,” explained KU Hillel Executive Director Jay Lewis. “This was the first group of students to take it from idea to reality.” The champion of the Hillel Formal was Pearl Sonnenschein, a junior from Overland Park, KS.
The event attracted a number of students in Greek houses as well as it gave them a chance to attend a formal with their friends who are not a part of Greek life. Although this was the first KU Hillel Formal, it seems like there will be more. “It was so much fun! I hope it becomes an annual event,” suggested KU freshman Brittany Multer.
