McDougal Winter Ball

Graduate students and their guests danced the night away at the twelfth annual McDougal Winter Ball on Saturday, February 25.

The New Haven Lawn Club set out a lavish dessert spread for 500 elegantly dressed attendees, who came out to enjoy a magical evening, organized by McDougal Social Fellows Jennifer Saucier and Margaret Bennewitz and Coordinating Fellow Jenna Sullivan (all from Biomedical Engineering). Dean Tom Pollard, Assistant Dean Lisa Brandes and Jennifer Mendelsohn, associate director of McDougal Graduate Student Life, joined in the festivities.

"Once again, this year’s Winter Ball was a blast!” Jenna says “The dessert buffet had a wonderful assortment of treats, and the Lawn Club was beautifully done up for the evening. The Graduate Student Life Fellows truly did an excellent job. It was a night to remember!”
