Baetjer Bush Ball

May 15, 2009

Students at ballOn April 17, Bush School students, alumni, faculty, and staff gathered at the College Station Hilton’s Grand Ballroom for the 5th annual Baetjer Bush Ball. The evening began with a cocktail reception, followed by dinner and dancing. The ball is named for Patrick Baetjer (MPIA 2007), who originally created and organized it during his years at the Bush School.

This year’s ball drew some 124 guests, the largest attendance to date. The event was organized by two second years students—David Nyquist (MPSA) and Alejandra Ortega Sánchez (MPIA)—who served as social committee chairs for the Student Government Association.

Students at ball“It’s a great evening,” said Alejandra Ortega. “Everyone gets dressed up and comes together for a wonderful evening of dinner, dancing, and laughter. It’s a time to celebrate the end of the first year or the culmination of a wonderful two-year journey.”

Students see the ball as an opportunity to come together with faculty, staff, colleagues, and friends and relax outside of the formal school atmosphere. “Events like this help foster community at the Bush School, but also show the close-knit nature of our relationships with each other and the faculty,” said Nyquist.
