While some guests enjoyed dancing the night away, other guests spent time with friends and significant others at the Lotsa Laffs Photo Booth which was located inside the Nittany Lion Inn Ballroom this year. Lights were flashing throughout the night while guests danced to old standbys such as the Cupid Shuffle, Wobble, Cha Cha Slide and the Cotton-Eyed Joe. The dance floor was packed with guests that dancers were also dancing behind the DJ booth.

Each year the Graduate and Professional Student Association raises awareness for a local charitable organization during the Winter Gala. This year the Graduate and Professional Student Association collected donations at the door for Centre Safe, formerly the Centre County Women’s Resource Center.

Military training has been a tradition since the inception of Penn State. In the early years, training was provided by civilians familiar with military protocol. Later, a full-time professor of Military Science was added to the roster at Penn State. Penn State provided military training for many men that fought in World War I and World War II. In 1916, an ROTC unit was established at Penn State. Throughout the years, training has changed from the initial drills to instruction in all branches of the military to general military science training. Today, Penn State has one of the top ROTC programs in the country. The Nittany Lion Battalion today includes four companies. Three are known on the main campus, and the fourth is part of the Altoona campus.

Thank you Penn State Army ROTC for choosing And We Danced DJ Entertainment to be a part of your 2019 Dining Out!
