Small Town Nights Under Stadium Lights
On October the 10th through the 15th, Snow College celebrated its yearly Homecoming dance, with the theme of “Small Town Nights Under Stadium Lights.”
With the Homecoming dance also comes Homecoming week; This is a week filled with activities and Snow College swag, accompanied by a tailgate and football game. Organized by the Snow College SBO team, Homecoming week shaped up to be quite the event. As stated by Student Body Officer President, Jackson Rowley, “This year's homecoming is going to be the best one yet. Out of all the school events, these are the ones you don’t want to miss. You won’t regret it.”
With daily campus events, the week kicked off with the Cocoa-Cozy event. This event is generally held in the library plaza and offered students the opportunity to have hot chocolate and churros. This event was followed by the debut of Snow College’s, “Snow’s got Talent,” talent show, which featured selected performances from students' auditions in the Greenwood Student Center. Then, on the 12th, Western Swing was held under the white tent.
In preparation for the football game, homecoming shirts and swag were handed out throughout the day at the bell tower on October 13th. In honor of this year's homecoming theme, “Small Town Nights Under Stadium Lights,” there was a black light “glow dance” held in the Blue Gym. Students were encouraged to wear neon or white clothes to the dance, to embrace the “glow” theme of the dance.
October 15th was the conclusion of Homecoming week. This is symbolized by the annual Homecoming parade which students and community members attended. Prior to the football game, a pregame tailgate was held with food, games, and Snow swag in an attempt to excite Badgers for the game against Miami ASA College.
Snow Student Elizabeth Johns said, “All of the Homecoming events last year were so fun. I have been looking forward to Homecoming once again.” Johns advised the students by saying, “Come to all of the events. You won’t regret it. Come make new friends. You only get so many college homecomings, so make the most of it.”
