Students and alumni will zip around campus for the superhero themed Rise of the Pointers Homecoming.
“The purpose of homecoming is really just to have Pointer pride for the entire campus, community and alumni,” said homecoming council chairperson Lauren Seward.
Seward explained that any group of students can create a team by registering online and paying $25. Activities range from a chalk drawing contest or a cake decorating contest to more traditional ones like the parade and spirit day.
The kickoff event for homecoming is the 5K Super Run Sunday at 4:30 p.m. outside the Allen Center. Homecoming Council members will hand out free capes for the first 225 participants.
The homecoming football game will be in collaboration with the Pink Game, as two events wrapped into one.
Jenna Furger, the Pink Week committee chair, said that for the football players’ entrance, cancer survivors and Colleges Against Cancer members will create a human tunnel for players to run through.
Seward explained the event she is most looking forward to is the cake decorating contest.
“There are cakes that are exactly the same in the beginning and then they’re just pieces of artwork at the end,” Seward said.
Homecoming week is full of activities for students to explore and generate school spirit.
“There is always something for students to do,” Seward said.
