Top hats will be judged in the following categories: Most Creative, Best Reflects Homecoming Theme, and Best Reflects Washburn Spirit.
During Homecoming, the campus community will cast votes by placing change in a jar for a particular hat. All money collected will be donated to the university’s campaign for United Way of Greater Topeka.
Top hats also may be purchased at a “Buy Now” price. A top hat can be bought for the “Buy Now” price of $50. To purchase your favorite top hat at the “Buy Now” price, visit the Students activities and Greek life office immediately and make payment. Hats will remain on display with a “Purchased by…” sign throughout Homecoming week.
At the end of the week, the top hats will be auctioned off, during a silent auction, 5 to 7 p.m., Friday, Oct. 26 at Washburn After Hours, Bradbury Thompson Alumni Center. For details, call student activities and Greek life at 785-670-1723.
