As the dust settles on VCU’s 2015 Homecoming Week, students are sadly struggling back into school mode just in time for midterms. But it doesn’t all have to be over, as students are already reflecting on their homecoming experience and preparing for next year.
On a night without any sporting event taking place in the Siegel Center, the arena is usually silent. That was far from the case Wednesday night when VCU hosted its inaugural pep rally.
The inaugural “Light up the Night” event Monday night got homecoming week underway with a campfire themed gathering in the Commons Ballroom and a sparkler laden photo-op later in the night.
It seems ridiculous that it’s even necessary to say, “Maybe that’s a bad idea.” But here we are: A portion of the student body saw nothing wrong with using “Empire” as the theme for this year’s homecoming.
As Homecoming Week dawns on VCU’s campus, the preparations are almost complete, but one question still remains: Who will be crowned Homecoming King and Queen?
