Are you ready for homecoming?
Jessica Combess, the Director of Student Activities and Leadership, has taken the lead on this year’s homecoming committee.
Coastal Carolina University’s homecoming is a week-long celebration.
“We have a lot of events sponsored by various groups. Coastal Activities Board hosts three events for the weeks and they kick us off with the pageant, Miss Teal/Bronze. That winner gets to go to the Miss South Carolina pageant. The talent show is a huge deal hear at CCU, it sells out quickly, there is no cost involved, but the tickets disappear quick. The Haunted Woods is also put on by CAB [which will be partnered with the Haunted Festival that the Office of Student Life puts on],” Combess said.
The homecoming extravaganza beings with a pageant and closes with a home football game. Combess suggests students plan ahead, now that the week’s schedule has been posted. She recommends attending the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) step show, as it has been a fun event each year.
Groups and individuals alike can win the homecoming honors. Registration for the competition will be accepted until Oct. 4 and has to include each member and/or members’ first and last name and student ID.
There will be a $300 prize and trophy; the winner and/or winners will be announced Saturday, Nov. 2nd during the 3rd and 4th quarter of the game against Troy.
