2015-2016 VS PINK Reps Jamie Holley and Sarah Baker
First things first, Welcome to another AMAZING year at Florida State University! We can’t wait to get to know all of you and have so many great things planned for the Fall 2015 semester. If you are not familiar with the VS PINK on Campus program, allow us to give you a bit more background on who we are. Each year at Florida State, two girls are selected from the student population to represent Victoria’s Secret PINK on campus to their peers and gain experience with one of the most well known fashion brands in the world. For the 2015-2016 school year, Jamie and I were lucky enough to be chosen for the experience of a lifetime, and we can’t wait to tell you about it!
This past week, PINK flew us out to Columbus, Ohio for Brand Training where we received a detailed overview of what it means to be a PINK Campus Representative. We flew from Tallahassee to Atlanta to meet with the other Campus Reps, then caught the connecting flight to Columbus where we rode a bus to the Hilton Easton hotel. Jamie and I picked up our goodie bags, quickly changed into our varsity crews (so adorable!) and headed back downstairs for the Welcome meeting in the Ballroom.
After the Team Welcome and eating dinner, PINK threw a party for us at the hotel with the famous PINKAPALOOZA and PINK Claw Machines as well as a DJ, Cotton Candy, and Back to School props to use in our social media promotions! To end the night, we all watched Crazy Stupid Love together!
The next day, we planned our events, worked with social media groups, and learned all about current PINK product. Our favorite part, however, was shopping night! PINK took us out to dinner at Bon Vie Bistro and allowed us early access to PINK Friday, which was an amazing experience!
Jamie and I got to know so many other great PINK Reps during Brand Training at schools like Florida International University, Ole Miss, and Auburn! We can’t wait to work with these ladies throughout the year and we are so excited to see all the PINK fun that they bring to their campuses!
The final day of brand training was bittersweet! Of course we couldn’t wait to take everything that we had learned back to Florida State, but we were also sad about saying goodbye to all of our awesome new friends! The morning consisted of focus groups and an amazing candy bar, but after that we went back to the airport and headed for Atlanta!
On Instagram the other day, we made a post about our new Snapchat profile and told all of you that if we got to 100 friends on Friday, we would announce something HUGE! Of course all of you know that Florida State University is the official PINK Class of 2015 Welcome Week winner and we are pleased to finally be able to give everyone a date- It will be Friday, August 28th! We can’t wait to see everyone at our Welcome Week Event, and as of right now over 2.5k students have RSVPed on Facebook. The more we learn about the event, the more we will let you know, but as for right now we have one more BIG piece of news…
CAMPUS SHOWDOWN 2015!!! As we previously released, the Campus Showdown will take place August 26th-September 4th for 10 days of crazy FUN!! That means on August 28th we will be sharing a lot of info with you about the Showdown at the Welcome Week event. We strongly believe that 2015 is the year that Florida State will win Campus Showdown but we need your help, Seminoles. This year will be quite a bit different from last year because we will have a 6 day long qualifying round which will require PINK Nation membership, an Instagram round, a Snapchat round, and a Twitter round, as well as the “Final Championship” which will be a tap race. The winner will receive a CRAZY campus party with a celebrity guest & concert, PINK models, bounce houses, and SO much more!!
We can’t wait to tell you more, so stay tuned on our social media handles @vspinkfsu on Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat as well as our Facebook page “Victoria’s Secret PINK at Florida State University!”. Share us with your friends! See you soon, Noles!
