Who Says There's No Prom In Grad School?

From performing dance routines and ballads at the Talent Show to sharing cultural cuisine at the International Dinner, Johns Hopkins SAIS students have their fair share of traditions. Among the most cherished traditions is the Annual Cherry Blossom Ball, an annual social at organized by the Student Government Association. A former SGA president once described the event as “the signature annual event at SAIS” and “basically the school prom.”

This year's ball took place Saturday, April 15th at The Willard InterContinental Hotel, a contemporary luxury hotel located one block from the White House and a few blocks from campus. Thank you to the student government association for organizing the event, and all of the students who took a break from studying to participate!
