Fridays are normally Spirit Days at Kalamazoo College, prompting the K community to wear orange and black, but the one coming Aug. 30 is special. It’s National College Colors Day and we are joining colleges and universities across the country in the annual Friday-before-Labor-Day celebration that fuels school pride.
We are encouraging current students, admitted and prospective students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents and the community to participate by posting photos of themselves, friends, family and colleagues wearing K gear to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with the hashtags #ShowUsYourK and #CollegeColorsDay. Alumni may also submit their pictures through email at firstname.lastname@example.org for us to post. Be sure to tell us in your posts why you love K!
As a bonus, the College Marketing and Communication office will randomly select three participants to win a K sweatshirt, hat or mug from the Kalamazoo College Bookstore.
Read the contest rules below and start considering how you will participate in National College Colors Day. By the way, if you need more orange and black, visit the bookstore in person or online. Thanks for letting your K spirit shine!
No purchase is necessary to participate in Kalamazoo College’s National College Colors Day contest and a purchase doesn’t increase a participant’s chance of winning.
The contest will run from 12:01 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. EDT Aug. 30. A College Marketing and Communication (CMAC) representative will choose the winner at random Sept. 3 from entrants who participate Aug. 30. Please avoid creating multiple accounts to submit additional entries. There will be one entry per participant regardless of the number of posts. The winners will be notified Sept. 3.
Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are not sponsoring the contest and are not responsible to entrants or participants. By posting, you consent to have your name announced by the College on social media should you win a prize.
