North Park's Magical Transformation
A week before class started, right when my family was in the middle of marathoning all eight Harry Potter movies, I received an email from my House Community, North Park. Dartmouth has a total of six House Communities, which are not unlike Gryffindor or Slytherin (minus the talking sorting hat and association with different personality traits). The email advertised the first event of the winter, and to my surprise, it was going to be Harry Potter-themed!
I brought a few of my friends who are also in North Park, and we set out for House Center A (aka the Onion), a building meant for North Park and West House. What we saw when we walked in was beyond expectations. The North Park executive council truly went all out in their decorations, thoroughly decking out the entire place in various Harry Potter paraphernalia. (There was even a Moaning Myrtle in the bathrooms, as we came to discover.) It truly felt like I was teleported to Hogwarts.
They served all sorts of elaborately decorated Harry Potter-inspired finger foods, cupcakes, and cake pops, as well as butterbeer. I’ve personally never gone to Harry Potter World in Florida, but I can’t imagine that the butterbeer I drank could be improved. And what's Hogwarts without a little entertainment?
