Kids these days

Now why didn't they do this kind of thing when I was in college?


Students at Monmouth College, a small, private liberal-arts school in Monmouth, IL, are planning a Jane Austen ball to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the publication of Pride and Prejudice. (This is part of the delightfully named "Summer Opportunities for Intellectual Activities" program. AKA summer school, perhaps?)


I'm most curious to hear what the "Regency-era finger food" and "Austen-themed meals" will consist of. . .
