Pageant Looks for "Ugly Man" to Raise Money for Philanthropic Cause

Not just any average pageant, Alpha Phi Omega will host its national fundraising non-beauty pageant Ugly Man on Campus (UMOC) at 7 p.m. Nov. 8 in Baldwin Auditorium.
All organizations across campus may enter one participant, male or female, in the event. Contestants will be judged on quirky and funny characteristics, instead of a more traditional beauty-centered approach. There will be an ugly evening wear portion, interviews and an unusual “ugly” talent session.

Full proceeds from the event will be contributed towards charity. Half of the money raised will go to the winning organization’s charity of choice and the second half will go to the charity of Alpha Phi Omega’s choosing.

Alpha Phi Omega will sponsor penny wars from 10-3 p.m. from Oct. 29-Nov. 7 and Nov. 5-8 in the Student Union Building, Magruder Hall, McClain Hall and Violette Hall.

Tickets will be available at these locations as well and can be purchased for $2 in advance and $3 at the door. For more information, and to participate in the event, contact the UMOC co-chairs at
