IMSA, it is that time of the year again: Clash season. Only this time, it’s different as this year marks the 25th Anniversary of Clash of The Halls!
Day 1 started off with brain-twisting activities and cinematic masterpieces. At 8 AM, halls began to scramble for answers to a riddle that focused on “What happened in the cafe.”
There was an extended midday for Clash to host an opening ceremony in the Main Gym, where CAB outlined the upcoming week. Following their announcements, Chemistry teachers Dr. Golab and Dr. Kopff performed a colorful fire experiment showcasing Hall superlatives such as “Most Likely to Forget Lines at Talent Show,” “Most Likely to Break Clash Trophy,” etc.
The remainder of midday consisted of Think Tank: an event where the halls come together to answer the most challenging trivia questions. The categories ranged from STEM-related questions to IMSA Hype and Pop Culture.
In the evening, each hall showcased its Hall Movie that incorporated its theme. Every movie demonstrated brilliant creativity and enlightening jokes, creating a three-way tie for 3rd place.
However, no hall compared to 1505’s winning movie, based on their theme Paradi5e. The movie told the story of four teenagers celebrating their summer before college together, learning that paradise doesn’t require any fancy or expensive vacations.
Tallying the scores of all three events, here are the final standings as of Day 1:
3rd: 1503, 1504
Good luck to all halls on Day 2!
