Last Spring semester, UCF was entered into the Victoria’s Secret back-to-school Pink party. The contest consisted of students at the universities entered to tweet and Instagram using their college’s initials followed by pink party as a hashtag. (Ex: #UCFPinkParty). After several long days of students creating new twitter profiles and tweeting to the point that they were placed into “Twitter jail,” their fingers nearly falling off, UCF won the contest. These students had to compete against a bunch of other universities to win this back to school bash. It’s unfortunate yet safe to say that students put more time and effort into winning this contest than any homework or studying. They already use Twitter and Instagram, so why not put their efforts towards winning a contest?
After a long awaited couple of months for this party to roll around, the time is finally here! This week at UCF is Pink week. Victoria’s Secret Pink is taking over campus! Sunday, the Victoria’s Secret Pink store in the Mall at Millenia in Orlando held an after-hours party of giveaways to kick the week off. 100 VIP tickets were handed out to 50 lucky Knights today on campus and Wednesday is the Pink pool party located at the RWC Leisure pool. Finally, the headlining event takes place on Thursday in the UCF arena. The concert features Flo Rida and The White Pandas. Tickets will be released to all UCF students tomorrow and you can pick up one ticket per person per UCF ID. This is an event that we have earned and do not want to miss! Tickets will run out! It’s time to celebrate being back in classes and have a great time!
