Should I go to my uni's semi formal this year?


Mar 4, 2019
I was wondering, so there's like a semi-formal for my department at uni coming up and i was wondering if I should go.I'm a little hesitant as I don't think any of my friends will go and I will know some people there, they aren't really friends, just acquaintances at best, so I don't think I'd hang with them as it could be awkward as they'll be with their friends and I might seem weird being with them, so basically don't want to be like/look lonely and there's also a dinner and photos, so I'm just wondering, who am I gonna sit with, take photos with..etc. So I'm kind interested as it's my fourth year but due to the above factors, I'm leaning towards not going honestly, but wanted a second opinion.

See it as a chance to network. Nothing says you have to stay the entire time right? If it feels awkward, boring, or a pain...bail. But it's a good chance to push yourself to meet/talk to more people from your department (especially because you're in your fourth year)
