The Berry College ballroom was
full of glamour and energy as students placed their “bets” at Casino
Night, one of Berry’s most popular events.
A tradition since 1975, attendees
dressed to the nines enjoyed a fun-filled night of dealing and playing casino
games such as craps, roulette, blackjack and poker to earn money in the form of
chips. Students then traded the chips for raffle tickets to win fun prizes.

three years I've worked on Casino Night, it really does flow surprisingly well
with 17 people working on one event because we work in small teams in addition
to the large group,” DeVos said.
“I loved the photo
booth. I always wanted to make the print out photos that we got from
there," said Josie Pesiri, a junior anthropology major.
Both pre-recorded and
live music were played on the ‘Vegas strip,’ and there was an Elvis
impersonator mingling with partygoers in the lounge. Mock ceremonies at a
drive-thru wedding chapel, a photo booth and ‘mocktails’ completed the Vegas
