Homecoming participants dare to be different

During Homecoming Week, Oct. 18-22, the halls of campus were filled with tie-dyed shirts, leather jackets, slicked back hair and poodle skirts.

And yet, some students did not participate. Some say they do not want to stick out or go out of their comfort zone. Other believe they would look stupid if they dressed up.

Getting students to participate does not happen all at once.

“I was not that involved that much as a freshman, but I slowly got more involved after my sophomore year,” Jordan Hogue, ’06, said. “Dressing-up days are a great opportunity to get involved in school.”

Some students have had someone influence them to get into school spirit.

“I do not think most freshmen really get into dressing up; they do not really understand Homecoming Week,” Kaley Hearnsberger, ’06, said. “I was lucky enough to have an older sister who filled me in on the hype of the week when I was a freshman.”

Students have different opinions on participating in school functions.

“Activities like dressing-up allow students to get into school spirit,” Hogue said. “It encourages school activity.”

Other find the act of dressing-up to be significant.

“I think its fun to dress up and wear stuff you normally would not wear,” Hearnsberger said. “We need to take advantage of fun, memory-making days. Homecoming Week is always a fun thing to remember.”

Participating may not be as difficult as some think.

“Dressing up is easy,” Chad Wathen, ’06, said. “A pair of jeans and a shirt is all it takes to dress up and be involved.”

Students need to remember that they may not get another chance to be involved in high school. Students who hang around waiting for the right time to participate may never do anything.

“I think that every year I dress up and go all out,” Hearnsberger said. “Even more because I realize that the fun times in high school are running out.”
