Homecoming Week Activities 2007

Homecoming 007 logoThe theme for this year’s Homecoming Week is 007 – Everything or Nothing.

This year students are sent on missions to participate in activities and build anticipation for the big day on Saturday. Because men’s and women’s soccer are both having away competitions the Saturday of Homecoming Week, transportation will be provided to home games for these sports throughout the week.

To encourage other students to support these sports as well as football and volleyball, who have home competitions this weekend, the Student Athletic Advisory Committee (SAAC) will be giving out FREE Warrior Spirit Shirts for everyone who attends a home competition and brings two non-perishable food items to support local food pantries for their annual service project, Cans Across the Conference.
