Come out for Homecoming Week! It actually looks pretty cool!

Come out for Homecoming Week! It actually looks pretty cool!

Spirit week is finally upon us. There will be fun, food, and prizes according to the Facebook page for the event, with everything planned out by our newly elected student councils ESC, CCSC, SGA, and GSSC. So come on out and spread some school spirit, because we’re seriously lacking in that department.

Between Monday 10/12 and Friday 10/16 there will be a photo scavenger hunt (never heard of a school scavenger hunt before) and a residence hall banner competition. We don’t know exactly how halls will crowdsource their banners, but there’s a hall wide prize for best banner.

On Thursday 10/15 Barnard will be hosting a Homecoming Carnival. There will be face painting, balloon making, magic, games, and interactive activities according to the Barnard alumnae page. We’re gonna need some of that magic to beat the Quakers.

On Friday 10/16 is the Greek Week Carnival. There will be food, games, and giveaways from Dig Inn, Insomnia, and the newest member of the MoHi community, Sweetgreen. Check out the Facebook event here. After the Carnival, the football team will be practicing on the South Lawn from 3 PM to 4 PM, which will lead up to the big pep rally from 4 PM to 5 PM.

And, of course, Saturday 10/17 is the big game against the Quakers.

You can SnapChat your homecoming experiences to @CURoar2015, and use the hashtags #PounceOnPenn and #CUHomecoming2015 to show your spirit on Instagram.

There will be free (FREE) T-shirts at Carnival and Pep Rally, as well as a raffle for all of those who enter the scavenger hunt. So even if you don’t like free food, games, school spirit, balloons, free food, fraternities and sororities, scavenger hunts, free food, or football, you could always use another Columbia shirt. But really, did we mention the free food?
