Female college students familiar with Victoria Secret’s PINK line are almost certainly fans of their collegiate line of witty t-shirts, hoodies, yoga pants and more boasting the football teams of 56 colleges and universities nationwide. Last fall PINK created a contest amongst the 56 PINK Collegiate Schools, which narrowed down to UCF, University of Texas, Rutgers and Purdue, promising the winning school a party and concert with the famous Victoria Secret PINK models. This contest included competitions via social media sites such as Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter over the span of about 3 days. When it came down to the final competition between UCF and Texas, UCF beat Texas by more than 40,000 tweets in the 24-hour long tweet race using the hashtag #UCFPinkParty.
On Thursday, September 14th UCF students will claim their prize by attending a free concert featuring “The White Panda” and “Flo Rida.” Students can pick up their tickets at the Student Union from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, September 10th with a valid student ID. Not only will PINK be throwing a concert in UCF’s honor but will also be hosting a number of events. One of those is an after hours shopping event at The Mall at Millenia from 6 to 8 p.m. on Sunday, September 8th. At this private event shoppers receive an added bonus of 15% off. Another is a pool party at UCF’ Leisure Pool on Wednesday, September 11th from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. For those who want daily updates, texting “WIN” to 40679 will give you all the details!
