Last night was the 2013 MSU CHM Medball, and it was a blast. The theme was Bond - Dr. Bond, and everything went off without a hitch. The night was the product of weeks of planning by the student council (of which I am a member), as well as many faculty and staff, and would not have been possible without the generosity of MANY donors. For those that don't know, the event is basically a big banquet to celebrate the year, as well as an opportunity to recognize outstanding faculty and staff with awards. Awardees were voted for by the student body, and were presented with special glass Green Apple awards for their contributions and dedication to students.
The night also serves as an opportunity to unwind by hanging out with friends, dancing, and watching the student- and faculty-made Med Folly videos. Once the Grand Rapids vids get posted, you may see your's-truly in a couple of them - but I'll make sure to post each video as it gets uploaded. They do a good job of showing up much fun we can have - even though we're med students, haha. Without further ado, here's one from the East Lansing campus:
Below is a panorama of the ballroom at the Radisson in East Lansing, Michigan. Though you may not be able to tell very much, each table is decked out with all the Bond-themed decorations - wine bottles, posters, playing cards, fake cash, candles, and 007 signs. All told, it was a great night.
Just after posting this, another med folly was released:
