Herbert W. Armstrong College Students Hold Proper British Garden Party
Students adopt British tea-time culture for an afternoon.

EDMOND—Over 50 members of the Herbert W. Armstrong College student body participated in a traditional English tea party and lawn games on May 1 outside the John Amos Field House.

Women came dressed in party sundresses, sunhats and sunglasses. Men sported vests, suspenders and bow ties. Classical music and laughter mingled with the sounds of lawn games, such as badminton, bocce and croquet.

Senior Jordanya Rouzer said her favorite aspect was dressing up. “Everyone looked awesome, and it really added a lot to unifying everyone for the activity and to helping create excitement.”

“I was thrilled at the opportunity to have a traditional lawn and tea party so far away from home,” English freshman Sera Millar said. “The fragrance of fresh scones and brewed tea brought back nostalgia of England.”
