CSHO Annual Fashion Show
Founded in November 2005, the annual Charles Sumner Harrison Organization Fashion Show is a favorite event during the fall semester. Approximately 40 models—students and a few staff members—dress to impress a packed McDonough Auditorium. Planning and practice for the event starts months in advance and with all admission proceeds going to charity.
