Homecoming festivities!

Hey Everyone!

It’s Homecoming weekend!!! Hope is filled with alumni, students, and visitors from all over. On Friday afternoon my friend Sam and I led Segway tours around Hope’s campus. The Segways were so fun to drive, and I wish I could drive them around more often. Since I am apart of the Student Alumni Leadership Council, I attended the alumni dinner on Thursday evening with the Alumni Board since they came into town for Homecoming. I enjoyed seeing some familiar faces and connecting with alumni from all over the U.S. Hope’s campus has definitely picked up this weekend with a full schedule of events for alumni and students to enjoy.

My ultimate favorite part about Homecoming is the Hoedown at Teusink’s Farm. The Hoedown consists of fun activities including dancing, animal petting, bonfire, snacks, cider, hayrides, hay maze, and pure fun. My friends and I learned some new great dance line dances. The camaraderie at the Hoedown is incredible with a bunch of fun energetic college students dressed in flannel having a good time.

On Saturday afternoon Hope hosted a Fall Fling BBQ in Phelps. Students, faculty, staff, and alumni ate together in Phelps. There were also tables placed in the Maas Center showing different student organizations around campus. The student groups shared with alumni their current activities. 

I have enjoyed my Homecoming Weekend and now need to spend time on my school work since I have spent a lot of time having fun with Homecoming activities. It’s weird to think that next year will be my last Homecoming at Hope as a student. Wow time is flying!

Hope you have a great week!
