This year’s theme for Winter formal is the 80’s. Sparkles, cheetah print and flowers accent the crazy mullets, ruffles and hammer pants. For this dance you need to break out your poofy dresses and shiny suits, and get ready to strut your stuff. Bright, potent colors and frilling clothing really bring in the 80’s essence. Located at the Rogue River Room at the Stevenson Union at Southern Oregon University on February 7, the dance will be from 8:00 to 11:00pm.
How exactly is a person supposed to dress for this dance? Well,since the theme is the 80’s, extravagant suits and glittery printed dresses are required, (no not really, but they are encouraged).
