Following up on a post the Daily Deac did earlier this week about the Student Leaders Retreat and school spirit, the Parent Programs office received this email about wearing black and gold. If your students aren’t aware and you are a reader, please share it with them!
Show your Support for the Demon Deacons! Wear Black and Gold on September 2, 2011
Sometimes holidays can be a bit complex to celebrate. There might be travel involved, gifts to purchase, and tough decisions to make on which outfit to wear. For those looking for an alternative to the more challenging holidays, look no further than College ColorsDay. This holiday is so easy to participate in, we’ve broken it down into one easy step.
Are you ready? Here it is.
Step 1: Wear Black and Gold on Friday, September 2, 2011.
It’s that easy! Reach into your closet, throw on your Wake Forest gear, and head to campus or work. Show your school spirit by wearing your Demon Deacon hats, earrings ,T-shirts, ties, watches – anything Black and Gold – on September 2nd, and you’ll be a part of one of the most easiest, yet spirited holidays in America.
Don’t have anything to wear? Make a stop by the Hanes Mall Deacon Shop here in Winston-Salem, or a local retailer for all your College Colors Day needs. More information on College Colors Day 2011.
