Event description

Description

Join us for an unforgettable evening at the ENCHANTED FOREST.

After months of hard work and consistent planning, the student organized OCC Prom Committee and the OCC Spectrum Clubs are proud to announce OCC's first ever, college-wide prom. This event features the ever-alluring "ENCHANTED FOREST" theme and all are welcome to join us for an unforgettable night of live music, dancing, and refreshments (hors d'oeuvres).

Attendees are invited to dress up in classy prom attire, a themed costume, or to come just as you are and celebrate inclusivity, diversity, and the hard-work of every OCC employee and student. Fun prizes available to best dressed and most creative costumes!

This is an event for EVERYONE. Whether you can dance, whether you like trivia, whether you went to prom years ago, or whether you were too afraid to go and never made it ... we want you here. You are welcome here. Come out and have a fun night during the brightest week of the year.

RSVP by June 7 - First 30 reservations will receive a VIP bag!
The cost of tickets sold goes to support all three OCC Spectrum clubs, this event, and potential events like this in the future.



What kind of music will we hear?

There should be something for everyone with music from across the decades including hits from the past, chart toppers of today, and tracks in between. Let us know what two songs you'd definitely dance to and we'll be sure to put them in the playlist.

What if I don't know how to dance?

That's great! Neither do any of us! There will also be other fun activities for when you're waiting to hear your favorite song on the dance floor or want to break away from the excitement. We will have multiple trivia hosts, art decorations, themed photo opportunities, and some fun surprises along the way.

The ENCHANTED FOREST Prom is all about diversity and inclusion, promoting OCC Student Life, and that includes the party people and the rest of us who get anxious just thinking about a dance floor.

What refreshments will be there?

Something for everyone! Steamed hams, sliders, vegetables and fruits, soft drinks, and desserts will be served. You can specify your food preferences on the ticket order form.

What about the dress code and this costume contest thing?

We want to encourage everyone to dress up, wear a themed costume, or simply come as you are, no pressure. During the event, the secret costume contest committee will be mingling with attendees to find out who is best dressed and who has the best costume. The top 3 winners will be announced during the event and will be given a prize.

Here's some ideas to help you get started on your ENCHANTED FOREST themed costume:

  • Something appropriate for on-campus dress
  • Fairy tale characters
  • Dryads, nymphs, other mythology
  • Evil queens, witches, dragons, knights, princesses, princes, evil kings
  • Jim Henson's Labyrinth
  • Lord of the Rings

What can I do to help?

Spread the word! Bring a friend. Bring three friends! This event will be even more successful by having lots of great attendees. If you have questions, reach out. We are happy to answer them.

We also have an option to donate additional funds to the event and the OCC Spectrum Clubs to help cover the cost of the event and to set aside funds for another event such as this in the future.




Open to all OCC students age 18+, OCC employees, and their guests.




Help us get the word out there by sharing the link to this Eventbrite page and tagging the post with #occprom. Photographers and videographers will be on-site throughout the night to capture memories and will share good things on social media.
