More than 100 juniors and seniors and their dates stepped out onto the red carpet and received the star treatment.
As opposed to last year's preliminary vote nominating contenders prom royalty, an overall vote was held at prom to select the prince, princess, king, and queen.
Juniors Albert Anastasio and Amanda Hwu were elected prince and princess. Seniors Tej Chajed and Lisa Boyce were named king and queen.
This was the third year invitations were administered online. Junior Adam Joseph followed the system Isaac Chambers ('09) set up two years ago.
After leaving the Alice Campbell Center, students made their way to the PFO-sponsored post-prom, held from midnight to 4 a.m. at the Illini Union.
The event included pool, bowling, Dance Dance Revolution, video games, movies, and more. Post-prom breakfast was held at senior Erika Belmont's house for the third time in four years.
All in all, it was a great evening (and early morning) — an excellent way to begin the final month of the school year. Check out this slideshow for starters, then be on the lookout for more next week.
