The Force Awakens

 

Bryn Mawr might not be in a galaxy far, far away, but the end-of-term dinner in December brought the Death Star and rebel forces to campus. At the Rebel Alliance stronghold in New Dorm, Chewbacca and Obi-Wan Kenobi mingled with a host of Ewoks (student Dining Services workers sporting costumes made by Unit Manager Steven Sensenich) while over at Erdman, Stormtroopers guarded the Death Star Dining Services workers—and a menu that included Vader Taters, Bantha steaks, and Yavin tofu. The two forces met on Wyndham Green for Dark Side Hot Chocolate, Yoda Soda, and lightsaber battles.
