2016 91st Annual Diplomatic Ball

The 91st Annual Diplomatic Ball was held at the Willard InterContinental Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Often called the Crown Jewel of Pennsylvania Avenue, The Willard InterContinental is conveniently located just one block from the White House. Internationally known as one of the best hotels in Washington D.C., this 150-year-old hotel remains a popular site for presidents, foreign dignitaries and prominent social figures to visit. The architecture, history, location, and design was the ideal location for the Ball which took place on March 18th, 2016.

The theme of the night was “Global Citizenship and Altruism” which perfectly embodied the spirit of the Diplomatic Ball and the dignitaries, students, and faculty that attended.

Thank you to the incredible 91st Diplomatic Ball Planning Committee for a fantastic event!
