In light of Min’s great post about homecoming, I thought I’d add a little more about the weekend and about what I did!
First, I had the opportunity Friday afternoon to sing with the Concert Choir for the Board of Trustee dinner in the chess center. We were asked to sing by President Steele, and it was wonderful to see how happy she was when we finished, and how appreciative everyone at the dinner was of our performance.
Then, like Min, I spent Friday evening at Varsity Revue (the talent show) and hanging out with the many wonderful friends I’ve made at Muskingum.
Saturday morning I worked in the Admissions office and got to meet some alumni and their kids, and then I went and stood on Lakeside to watch the parade. Part of the parade is always a float contest, and some of the floats were very impressive!
After the parade I went to the big tent on the East Lawn to eat the meal that was provided for everyone: board of trustees, alumni, parents, and students alike. There were also activities on the East Lawn like golfing and a photo booth. My roommate and I raced each other in giant inflatable hamster balls! Then we went to the football game against Otterbein for a little while, and watched the Muskies score the first touchdown!
One of my favorite parts of the whole weekend, however, was that my honorary won the banner contest! We’re a bit of a lesser-known group on campus, since we aren’t Greek, so winning was very cool for us, and was a great way to get our name out there. Plus, we worked very hard on our banner, so it was nice to see all of that work pay off!
