2011 Homecoming Week

Next Monday will kick off Homecoming Week. Expect many homecoming events (as you will soon see listed) throughout the week. This year’s theme is “Peace, Love, and Bearkats.” Hearing that theme makes me want to listen to some Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, and Bob Dylan right this minute! 
Here is a calendar of events. If you know of any events that aren’t listed, please let us know!

October 10th, 2011
Event: Homecoming Kick-Off
Place: Bearkat Plaza
Time: Noon

What to expect: You will see President Dana Gibson, the SHSU cheerleaders, and Orange Pride dance team “bringin’ it” with the “Bearkat spirit.” The 2011 Homecoming King and Queen nominees will also be announced. Groovy.

October 12th, 2011
Event: Sam Jam Carnival
Place: Holleman Field Parking Lot
Time: 7pm
What to expect: There will be a Ferris wheel, free food (I’m there), and various rides, games, and other attractions. The finalists for the Homecoming King and Queen will also be announced.

October 13th, 2011
Event: Homecoming Parade
Place: Along Sam Houston Ave.
Time: 6:30pm
What to expect: If you like parades, then this will excite you. MANY MANY people watch and participate in the parade each year. The only drawback to the parade is that it is almost impossible to get to Los Panchitos and other establishments until the parade is over. If you would like to participate in the parade, then you should click HERE to register online. The deadline is October 12th.
