Homecoming is almost here, and the candidacy process is locked in, and students are campaigning around campus for homecoming king and queen.
“This year we have one of the most diverse courts that I have ever seen,” said Student Government President Kaitlyn Bigham.
The student body picks the king and queen for homecoming. Each student will be emailed a URL link that is allowed one vote. Once the link is closed, a student cannot vote anymore.
For those interested in running next year, the process isn’t really as complicated as one might think, according to Bigham. All you have to do is go to your student portal and fill out questions to be reviewed by Student Government to make sure that you meet the standards for candidacy.
She said student government is looking to hear a lot of feedback from students about everything that is going on campus this school year.
“They are here to represent us and if we voice our wants and opinions in the questionnaire before you vote for our king and queen, we can make next year’s homecoming even more awesome,” said Bigham.
This year, the homecoming theme is going to be “Stone Age,” and multiple events are planned between Multicultural Affairs and Student Government. Starting Oct. 8, there will be dance performances, Songfest, a taco eating competition, folk music performers, music recitals, soccer games, Senegal African drum and dance performers, a choir performance, powderpuff football, tours of the new Golden Student Success Center, a golf tournament, an outdoor theatre performance, a volleyball game, an alumni barbecue, the bonfire and pep rally, the ENMU mix and mingle and a full day of events on the Saturday of homecoming on Oct. 13.
“With such a packed itinerary, why wouldn’t you want to support the Hounds and get out of your dorm room?” asked Bigham.
Between the sports, reunions, events, athletics and all of the departments on campus working together to throw an “awesome” homecoming, there is enough going on around campus to keep a person busy the entire week, she added.
“All of these events sound really fun, and student government is excited to see what kind of outcome we can muster up,” said Bigham. “Let’s get together and really show our school spirit this semester.”
