How was "A Haunted Homecoming"?


From the glow in the dark shirts to the pumpkin painting, everyone had something to do.

On Monday, Oct. 29th, there was an Apple Cider pop-up along with the farmers market. The next day brought out the trunk o’ treat for the kids and Coastal Carolina University invited locals to come out to the YY Parking Lot on Highway 544 to take part in this delight.

At that same time across campus, the 2018 Talent Show began. The Talent Show was highly anticipated as tickets for the Talent Show sold out in less than six hours when they went on sale on Oct. 19th.

Special guest host, Desi Banks, and guest DJ, DJRICKYDATRUTH, entertained the students of CCU and it was all thanks to Abraham Adams, director of events of Coastal’s Activities Board.

Adams started his process during the summer and reached out to Banks’ manager, who responded quickly.

Hurricane Florence may have delayed some plans for certain homecoming events, but Banks and his team didn’t hesitate to work with CCU. Audition videos were a thought when Florence was gone, but face-to-face auditions were the route that was taken.

“I appreciate everyone for getting their tickets and showing up and showing out,” Adams said.

He also commends his team and Sydni Knuckles, the president of CAB, for their hard work and efforts that were made to make the talent show a success. CAB were also the ones responsible for the Halloween Festival which was Oct. 31st.

On Nov.1st, there was the option to go out to both the downtown block party which was at four and Hoopla which started at 9 p.m. at the HTC Center.

The last event that ended homecoming was the step show which was Nov. 2nd and showcased NPHC organizations. It started off as 10 dollars, but on the day of it was 15. Tickets went fast and it was packed.

Next year will have to top this year's homecoming and it will. If you enjoyed yourself let us know.
