Homecoming: The Yearly Tradition

So, last weekend was Homecoming here at Muskingum, and, to be honest, it is completely different from High School Homecomings.

During my first year at Muskingum, I assumed that Homecoming would be like it was in High School. I was COMPLETELY wrong!

Homecoming weekend is a great weekend though. On Thursday night, there was a bonfire where the top 3 nominees for Homecoming King and Queen were announced. All juniors are eligible to be nominated for king or queen. The junior class votes first, and then the student body votes for a guy and a girl from the top 10 vote-getters from when the juniors voted.

Friday night was Varsity Revue. I love Varsity Revue because it is a time to showcase the talents of the students and, to be honest, you are usually surprised to see that certain people have certain talents. It is a really fun night. I have gon to Varsity Revue every year!

Saturday, there is a Homecoming parade that goes through town and then through campus. I got a unique perspective with the parade because, for the second year in a row, I was a commentator for the parade for WMCO, our radio station. It’s interesting to see the different float ideas that the groups and organizations here on campus come up with.

Then, Saturday night, there was a dance in John Glenn gym. This was the only part of Homecoming that was similar to high school. Homecoming has more of an alumni and community focus and it is really cool to see people who have graduated come back. I love Homecoming and I look forward to next year (which is my last Homecoming as a student. AHHHH…scary thought haha).
