Underground Formal

Do you remember your prom? How much would you give to relive it or do it over? Join Underground Perspective, SAB, the MLK (Martin Luther King) Center, and the Office of LGBTQ* Resources as we give you a chance to go back to prom as a college student. Even if you were unable to experience your high school prom, this is your time to dress up and dance the night away like it’s 2013 all over again! On March 3 in the Woodford Reserve Club, students can slip into their suits and dresses and get red carpet ready for a night that they won’t forget. Students can park at Commonwealth Stadium or take a shuttle from the library turnaround and the Wildcat Statue to Commonwealth. Entrance to the formal is between gates 10 and 11. Don’t forget that you need a valid UK ID upon entry and you can bring one guest as long as they have their government issued ID.
