After long days of challenging wetlabs, stimulating lectures and grueling competitions, all of the guests at Symposium gathered on the floor of Hilton Coliseum for an evening of fun and relaxation. The first evening was a "Beach-Luau" theme hosted by Purina. Guests were encouraged to come dressed for the occasion and enjoy the "Hilton Beach" (complete with sun, sand, toys, lounge chair and a pool!) while dancing to the tropical sounds of our DJ, Al. The highlight of the evening had to have been the "Reverse Bikini Contest." Quite a few of the brave male veterinary students donned bikinis of some fashion to impress the crowd. The winners, by popular audience vote were "The Boys from Illinois." In a great team effort, four classmates from Illinois took on the rest of the competition.
