Is prom overrated?

Thomas Brooks:
I’ve never been to prom, but I feel like it’s overrated yet not in a bad way. I think it’s great that we put so much hype into prom because it’s one of the seniors’ most memorable nights. The fundraising that goes into prom is crazy, but at the same time it goes to such a great experience for the seniors. This is the classiest thing that some of the seniors will ever experience in their life. Personally, I’m very excited for this year’s prom and even though a lot of money is put into prom, I feel like it’s worth it.  

Lezille Sagrado:
I don’t think prom is overrated. I wasn’t able to go to prom the past two years, but I still think of prom as a seemingly interesting and classy event. I think that prom could be a great experience for juniors and especially seniors since we spend a lot of time trying to fundraise so we can make prom fun for everyone and make it the best it can be. Prom can be expensive, but with all the food, picture-taking, and being able to spend time with your friends before college, I think it’s worth it.

Kinani Halvorsen:
I think that prom is overrated. Don’t get me wrong, I am just as excited as anyone else, but I think in some cases it gets too much “hype”. It’s not the magical night that everyone says it is. Is it fun? Yes, it is a very genuinely enjoyable night but I don’t think that it is everything it is made out to be. Prom is a night that people anticipate to be the “best night of their life!” And it can be, and in most cases it is a wonderful night, but prom is still overrated to me.

Dante Troina:
Prom is extremely overrated. It’s supposed to be a magical night of dreams, right? Well, sorry to say, but it’s not. My dream prom would be to take Yanet Garcia in my Lamborghini while dressed in my White Goodman shiny shoes. If only, right? Nope. Maybe my prom could be as thrilling as the one in 21 Jump Street; in fact, that would be awesome, making a drug bust in a whited-out suit. But none of those dreams can come true at Kayhi’s prom, which is why it’s overrated.
