It’s that time of the year again! The most exciting event of the year, also known as COMS Gala is approaching. This year our theme is NYC, bright lights and big city! Having attended every COMS Gala, I can easily say that it is the best event of the year! From the photo booth to the DJ, and the incredible midnight snack, there are many reasons why COMS gala is always a night to remember.
COMS Gala is known as the time to celebrate how fantastic our program is and it is an opportunity to dedicate the night and give thanks to the students, staff, and faculty! The professors of the program always look forward to attending gala as well as the students. The enthusiasm from the professors and students creates an exciting atmosphere at the venue!
My favourite part of Gala is the awards portion. The executives start off the gala by presenting humorous awards to the professors, to recognize their hard work and to highlight what makes them unique. Afterward, the dinner and dance portion continue.
COMS Gala is truly the best event of the year because it gives students the opportunity to get together with their peers and profs outside of the lecture room, in a relaxed setting. The event holds a special place in my heart because it is where I met my best friend, COMS pals, and fellow CUSS execs. If you are interested in attending, tickets are only $45 for the dinner and admission! We hope to see you out!
