NOI - Night of Innocence
Originally started by two sophomores, Mark and Marc wanted to start a movie night at Sid once per semester. However, miscommunication lead to Wiess’s public (NOD - Night of Decadence) and Sid Rich Films occurring on the same night. Too late to reschedule, Sid Rich Films transformed into NOI, a sort of anti-NOD for people would rather spend their night comfortable and cozy. Almost 40 years later, Sid still hosts the Night of Innocence, a giant pajama party with loads of food, right next door to Wiess’s Night of Decadence. Whether you stay at NOI the whole night or go to both, be sure to support this proud Sid tradition that embodies our rebellious spirit!
Picture this - going to class in the morning dressed up in theme, having lunch in the commons with music and games, and tailgating all afternoon in the country club. This may sound too good to be true, but this is exactly what college night is all about! Each semester, every college designates a Friday as its “college night,” where residents spend the day celebrating their college family. There’s always an awesome theme to inspire the dress, food, and decoration. And since Sid is the best college, naturally our college nights are the best, too.
While you might show up in white, you’re guaranteed to leave Hi-liter covered in everything from glowing artistic masterpieces to messages from friends.

This blacklight party will have you dancing away any stress about finals with all of your friends one last time before the end of the year.
