The 50s may be long gone, but Lipscomb’s own social clubs, Theta Psi and Delta Omega, are revisiting the era.
The clubs will hold the school’s first Full Moon Festival, scheduled for Saturday, Mar. 8, from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. in the Student Activities Center.
Theta Psi’s president, Zach Bowen, had the idea for a 50s/60s prom dance, and the idea evolved into a festival with plenty of attractions such as swing dancing, a live band, ice cream floats, a soda station, photo booth and corn hole.
The live band consists of all Theta Psi members, split into two separate bands. They will performing songs from the fifties and sixties, as well some songs from the seventies, eighties and nineties.
The festival has a specific purpose, as Theta Psi social planner Everett Davis explained.
“We’re trying to unite everybody in our good, clean fun event,” Davis said.
The event also has an important mission at its core involving the university’s drug and alcohol awareness policy.
“We want to stand in support of the drug and alcohol awareness policy of our school in a way that shows we can all have a great time while still keeping in step with the mission,” the event’s Facebook page reads.
Theta Psi had partnered with Delta Omega for the event. The girls’ club has helping financially, as well as helping set up the event and paying for some things.
“We’ve done a few things with [Delta Omega] before, and we thought that they’d want to be a part of it,” Davis said.
Davis said that both clubs are excited to host the event, and that everyone is welcome.
“Not only are we encouraging every social club to come, we are encouraging every student to come,” Davis said. “Plus, we’re encouraging people outside of Lipscomb to come.”
The Full Moon Festival is free to students who get their tickets early and are $5 at the door.
