At Notre Dame, your annual events define your dorm across campus. Pasquerilla East realizes this and has learned throughout the years how to make an event not only awesome, but also incredibly memorable. These traditions are more than just about having fun - they are fantastic ways to show PE pride and bond with your fellow Pyros. Here are the events that make Pyros just go crazzzzy!
Silent Night, Silent Auction (SNSA)
SNSA (pronounced "Snaz-za") is PE’s Christmas Extravaganza! It is a silent auction where we auction off awesome baskets donated by PE girls, people on campus, and the South Bend Community. We also auction off services such as amazing baking skills, piano lessons, or dinner dates! Not only is it a silent auction, but a Christmas celebration! We have cookie decorating, gingerbread house making, ornament decorating, pictures with Santa, and campus a capella and humor groups performing! All of the proceeds go to PE's signature charity, Hannah's House! This event usually takes place during the first week of December in the Lafourtune Ballroom, and is open to everyone, from students, to faculty and staff and their families! Come celebrate the holidays with PE and join us at SNSA!
So You Think You Can Sync? Lip Sync Battle
This two year old signature event was started in the 2016 spring semester and was a huge hit! Have you ever seen Jimmy Fallon’s lip sync battles or the show, Lip Sync Battle on Spike? Well, that's the idea! We had many different groups and solo acts perform such as our very own Assistant Rectors, a few Pyros, and many student groups from across campus. It is one of the funniest events on campus. All of the proceeds go a charity of PE's choice, and this year we were able to donate to Hannah's House! Look for tryouts in December and make sure to come to our third annual Lip Sync Battle this spring at Washington Hall!
Can you Take the Heat?
This is a spicy BWW wing eating contest in honor of PE being the hottest dorm on campus during Antostal (a campus-wide spring celebration at the end of the school year)! First, contestants go through rounds of the second hottest BWW wing and then whoever eats them the fastest goes to the final round of the hottest BWW wings!! We also have over 400 free wings for bystanders! It is always a fun spring day event, so look forward to that too!
