GWU Expands Its Ball

George Washington University's inaugural ball has been a hot ticket -- it's sold more than 4,000 tickets, and the waiting list is more than 1,500 long, according to an article in The Hatchet. But GWU has managed to find room for hundreds more:

GW was able to obtain space in the [Omni Shoreham Hotel] for at least 750 people on a wait list, spokeswoman Tracy Schario said. She declined to release more details until the University decides how to disperse the sought-after tickets.


"The wait list is still going to be longer than the number of tickets," she said. "But I can say that we will be able to accommodate more people."

You can read the full article on The Hatchet's web site.
