On Saturday, April 27, students and guests were treated to a night of fun, courtesy of the annual ASAJU gala fundraiser for student scholarships.
Each gala in years past has had a different theme, and this year’s was Casino Casiano. (Fun fact: they have had this theme several times, at least once in the ’90s, as well as in 2007!)
ASAJU worked hard this past semester to make this eventful night happen. Treasurer Andrew Gregg stated that $3,500, a little more than one-third of the ASAJU budget, was allotted for the gala.
Tickets were originally $12 each, but the day before the event, the price was reduced to two tickets for $12. About 80 people attended, including university president Robert Wexler. Read more »

“A favorite memory of this year was definitely Coming Out Day, and the Halloween party was a lot of fun, too,” recalled junior Lauren Bloom. We can all remember students walking the halls in their personalized T-shirts that boasted what they “came out” as, not only as gay, but also descriptions like “OCD” and “anxiety disorder.”

The food at any Thanksgiving dinner is traditional: turkey, mash potatoes, beans, corn etc. However, many families transformed the traditional Thanksgiving meal and modified it to their own traditions.
Here are some photos of untraditional Thanksgiving dinners sent to us from students here at AJU.
