THANK YOU!

Posted on:

THANK YOU to everyone for making Furry Weekend Atlanta 2014 our biggest and best yet! We loved having you in Atlanta and look forward to a big year ahead of us as Furry Weekend Atlanta makes our next big leap.

Thanks to all our staff members and volunteers who worked hard year round and all weekend at all hours to make the magic happen.

Thanks to our performers and panelists who made some memorable moments and shared their experiences with others.

Thanks to our charity, Conservator’s Center, for being at Furry Weekend Atlanta again. We love supporting you guys and we believe in your mission.

Thanks to the 7,000+ people (OMG!) who tuned in to watch the fursuit dance competition live stream – enough people to crash our website! You know what’s better than watching it on live stream? Seeing it in real life, because the energy is just amazing in person!

But, most of all, thank you, the attendees! You’re the reason we work year round to put together a convention. We love you guys, and we look forward to welcoming you back home next year for Furry Weekend Atlanta 2015: Shangri-La – The Furgotten Orient. Coming April 9th-12th, 2015 at our new home, the Marriott Marquis Atlanta!

Enrollment Starts Thursday!

Posted on:

On Thursday we begin accepting enrollment for this semester at Furry University! With enrollment, you will be placed in one of four houses: arts, music, science and math. These houses will be given points throughout the curriculum and the house with the most points at the end will be the head house on campus! So be sure to show your school spirit this year at FU.

The way to accumulate points are as follows: winning school competitions, showing school spirit, helping out your school by volunteering in the many extra-curricular activities that keep this university running, and just being an overall good student of Furry University.

(Any and all resemblance to a particular school of wizardry is clearly coincidental and meant in good fun ;3!)

More Food Options!

Posted on:

Furry University has arranged the following special food options for our students!

  • Firehouse Subs in Peachtree Center Mall: 10% off with your student ID (membership badge).
  • Hooters, across the street: 10% off food, and additional drink specials!
  • Gyro Madness at Courtland Street and Andrew Young International Boulevard (two blocks west of the hotel).

Registration will also have coupons for additional specials at Peachtree Center Mall.

New Food Events!

Posted on:

Remember that awesome mixer last year with the punch and collectible glasses? Keep your eyes on the schedule and Twitter feed for fun new food events! Unfortunately we will not be having a Con Suite, so please plan accordingly! It’s important to feed yourselves, and while the usual college diet consists of pizza and cup-o-noodles, we highly recommend something a little more balanced. There are a number of restaurants and eateries around the hotel, many of which love to see us and offer specials for FWA “students”. The mall food court across the street is offering extended hours as well! Need suggestions? See a staffer (we’ve eaten at nearly all of them!) or the hotel Concierge!
