Get Prepared for Green & Gold Day

Everything you need to know to get ready for UAlberta's Green and Gold Day.

So many ways to get ready for the big day—we have fashion tips, downloadable decorations and more. Let's get ready!

Find the Right Outfit

Need help finding that perfect look for Green and Gold Day? YouAlberta's Fall Fashion Guide has you covered.

Hoodies are easy, can be worn with anything and have plenty of pockets to store swag. If you have a favourite green dress, gold scarf or green pants, wear them. Or go old school by breaking out a retro jacket or sweater. And if you don't have green and gold clothes, pull on a backpack, grab a bandana or bring any other item with green or gold on it somewhere.
