Prom is just around the corner.

Girls rush to stores to buy their dresses, while boys scramble to find their tuxedos.

Prom has been trending on social media for the past month. However, this frenzy is not only seen on social media, for its presence is also evident in Carlmont.

Carlmont’s prom is on April 27. Located in San Francisco City Hall, juniors and seniors—and all others that they invite—can attend Carlmont’s 2018 prom, starting at 8:00 p.m. and ending at midnight.

The day of prom is also a minimum day, so students have time to prepare for the night.

All over social media platforms, such as Twitter, many are posting about their prom dates and their preparations for prom.

Despite this, some students don’t feel the need to bring a date to prom.

“A lot of my friends go without dates, and we all hang out together as a group, so I don’t feel like I need one,” Ciera Stratton, a senior, said.

Though prom may seem like a senior-only event, juniors are able to attend as well, and many are planning to do so.

“I’m excited for prom because a lot of my friends are going, and it’s going to be in the city,” Tèa Carranza-Doyle, a junior, said. “I have friends who are graduating this year, and I want to go [to prom] with them, and my senior friend who has already graduated told me she regretted not going to her junior prom.”

On the contrary, other juniors decided not to go due to the costs of prom.

“I didn’t really have enough money to get everything for prom, so it was really based off that,” Mitchell Anderson Mcewan, a junior, said. “I think [prom is] a big deal for seniors because it’s their thing—the thing that defines their year. But for juniors, I think that it’s just an expensive party.”

Although some students already decided not to go to prom, all of the excitement and spirit can prompt other students to make comments about said decision.

“Most of the time [when] my friends talk about prom, they just make fun of me for not going,” Anderson Mcewan said.

Regardless, prom is an event that is still highly-anticipated by many.

Stratton said, “I think that having prom as my last dance is great because it’s always the best one. It will leave me with lots of happy memories of high school after I graduate.”
