Students and faculty members from the Downers Grove Campus ushered in the new year with an annual Winter Formal gala. This longstanding tradition encourages students and their significant others to spend time outside of the classroom relaxing and interacting with their fellow students and program faculty members.
A student committee, composed of officers from the student council executive boards, plans the Winter Formal. The event is open to all students on the Downers Grove Campus and more than 1,100 attended this year's event. The gala is held off campus at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois.
