Prom is a staple in American high school culture. It’s the place for ladies and gentlemen alike to flaunt their fashion sense and dance the night away. This night of fun, however, is not commonly celebrated in other countries. The South Asian Society at The University of Alabama wanted to re-create this night to remember for international students, but with a twist: to dress in attire from their home countries.

Here are the top looks from the night, featuring our students from around the world.



The University of Alabama, the state’s oldest and largest public institution of higher education, is a student-centered research university that draws the best and brightest to an academic community committed to providing a premier undergraduate and graduate education. UA is dedicated to achieving excellence in scholarship, collaboration and intellectual engagement; providing public outreach and service to the state of Alabama and the nation; and nurturing a campus environment that fosters collegiality, respect and inclusivity.
