For the recent premier of the latest Harry Potter movie, last Thursday St. Olaf College threw a dinner reminiscent of a Hogwarts feast.
Professors sat at the head table, candles “floated” above the dining tables, and students found themselves sorted in one of the main houses: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin. And how could the meal be complete without a reading from the book?
As student Emily Hemingway wrote:
This was probably the most epic dinner of my life!!!!!
