University Hall Auditorium


Red Carpet: 5:30 p.m.

This event was created to acknowledge and award young women of color (students, faculty, and staff) at Indiana State University for their exceptional leadership, academic performance, and resilience. We will continue to recognize the phenomenal accomplishments of our women of color. So, ladies - get ready to let your light shine!
This event will begin with an actual red carpet walk between 5:30-6 p.m. The program will begin promptly at 6 p.m. Our colors for the evening are any combination of black, white, and cream. If you do not have anything black, white, or cream, please wear what you have. Just remember, this is a red carpet event, so NO jeans!
