We encourage guests to dress in theme! This year’s theme is Wayside Homecoming! About 75% of Fur Ball guests dress in theme. Feel free to get creative with a full costume or go casual with your alma mater t-shirt or dress, or pull out the old letterman jacket! Accessorize with college pendants, pom-poms, band hat, or corsage.
Don’t be afraid to show your school spirit – remember this event is all about having fun! Formal attire is not encouraged. If you don’t want to dress in theme, that’s purr-fectly okay, you are welcome to come in slacks or a summer dress.
