Boarder Line: Hat Cake Dinner

On Thursday, May 11, the Boarding Department hosted its annual Hat Cake Dinner, a formal evening event that celebrates the graduating boarding seniors and the past year in boarding.

At the dinner, seniors sit together and invite their advisors to celebrate with them.

Every year, Hockaday Food Services is in charge of baking and designing cakes that resemble the hats that seniors wear during Commencement. This year, SAGE created four cakes decorated with real flowers for the seniors, as well as cupcakes for underclassmen.

“I feel more prepared for the next four years [in college] because of all the lessons I’ve gained from being a boarding student,” senior and 2016-2017 House Council President Heidi Kim said. “I’ve not only learned how to do my own laundry but also how to be independent and live in a community 24/7.”
