This year’s Homecoming (Oct. 10-12) is a “fair” cry from festivities of the past. A full blown festival is planned, including carnival rides, food vendors, entertainment and more.
Homecoming has been a plan in the making since the end of Homecoming last year. A survey was sent out on how to improve the event, which gathers current students, alumni, and the community.
Ashley Harwood, assistant director of Alumni Engagement, said, “There were a lot of comments saying we wish there was more food…we wish everyone was in one location because last year the tailgate was in one spot…that registration was in one spot…people wanted (it) more centralized.”
