In a longstanding New College tradition students gathered at the Old Caples Mansion this past Saturday, dressed in their finest 1920s garb. Students mingled and moved about on the lawn and up on the balcony and couples paired up to dance along to the live jazz music played by the New Cats.
Funding by the SAC was spent on juices and snack plates for guests to enjoy throughout the night. Despite the mosquitoes, the evening seemed to be a successful night with most guests dressing up and staying until the final note of the New Cats.
“I had a lot of fun at Gatsby,” second-year Olivia Talton said, “it was really fun for everyone to get all dressed up and have a good time. The live music was probably my favorite part, it was so good.”
