This dance will happen outside on Eddie's, the quad on the Rose Hill campus, with a DJ and white lounge furniture on the steps of keating. If this event doesn't already have you hooked, then let me say that there will be chocolate fountains...two of them...with 48 different toppings to choose from.

AYYYY Goombah!!! NSO will head to the eastside to Veniero's Bakery, a famous Italian Bakery founded in 1894.
