It only happens once a year; a week full of friends, food, and fun, all in the name of Homecoming.
The week started with free hot chocolate and a live concert on Monday night. “It was a fun atmosphere for a Monday,” said Matt Smith, “everyone was just having a good time and it was cool to see students playing live.”
More excitement came on Tuesday night in the “Snow’s Got Talent” show. Consisting mostly of musicians, singers, and even a stand-up comedian, the talent show displayed how much talented students we have on campus.
Unlike the previous two days, Wednesday was a day of food and art. Students spray-painted blue, orange, and white hats. Many of which were worn with pride throughout the rest of the week.
Thursday was a day highly anticipated by a group of football-loving girls. “Powder Puff this year was a blast,” explained Shay Krebs. “We had practices leading up to the game and it definitely paid off!” The freshmen girls beat the sophomores in a high-action matchup on the football field.
For the runners on campus, Friday was the night of the Glow in the Dark 5k run. Those who weren’t involved in the race found other avenues of entertainment for the night; there was even a bon fire.
“What I like best about homecoming week in college as opposed to high school is that the students just want to have a good time with everybody; there don’t seem to be cliques. It feels like Snow’s philosophy is ‘the more the merrier,’” explained Brynn Schiffman.
This welcoming atmosphere was noted at the dance as students joined together, some with dates, and others with friends, to have a good time.
Snow College’s homecoming week had something that just about anyone could enjoy. Although the campus is small, students put forth a special effort to make the time spent here memorable.
“The cool thing about Snow College is that it’s such a tight-knit community,” said Natalie Hart, “everyone is just so friendly and wants to have a good time together.”
