The 27th Annual Beaux Arts Ball
The Annual Beaux Arts Ball is one of Wentworth's longest traditions. Named for the Beaux Arts style of Architecture, the Ball was first planned by the Architecture department in 1990. The Ball was transferred to WEB in the late '90's and has been a part of their spring calendar ever since.
