Are you Prez Ball ready? #PREZBALL17

What is Prez Ball?

On Friday, September 15th marks the seventh biennial Wake Forest President’s Ball. Dating back to 2005 when President Nathan Hatch was named Wake’s 13th president, a group of students led the tradition of organizing a formal event as an official and warm welcome of President Hatch to Wake Forest. President’s Ball now welcomes thousands of Wake Forest community members including students, alumni, faculty, and staff. The event is held in Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum at 9 pm to 1 am.


Note from President’s Ball Committee:

  1. Free Admissions

  2. Complimentary shuttles at Lot P

  3. Bring your Wake ID to enter

  4. Attendees over 21+ must also bring a valid driver’s license

With President’s Ball around the corner, ladies no need to freak out over your outfit. Here is three fashion accessory tips that will win you bonus points to Who Wore it Better.

Tip 1: Bedazzled Shoes

It never hurts to go extra on the shoes – crystal-covered or silvery heels will just do.  

Tip 2: Quirky Earrings

Jewelry trend alert – shaped earrings are so in. The fun, artfully shaped earrings will guarantee you receiving a double take.

Tip 3: Puff Bags

Get warm and fuzzy with tufts of fur.
