Prom Night

By Emily Gold Boutilier Well after dark on the Friday after Valentine’s Day, a handful of students mill about in the lobby of Charles Pratt, the new first-year dorm. A band is playing, but no one is on the dance floor. Still, it’s early—only 10 p.m. And Katherine Black ’10, who organized the night’s Pratt Prom with her fellow RCs, isn’t worried. She doesn’t expect a crowd until 11 or 11:30.
