Homecoming was always one of my favorite events when I was in school and now that I'm out, it still has a special place in my heart. Sleepless nights of working on pomp, contraption, and Mock Rock sets, days filled with spectating and competing in field events, working the Mini 500 pit crew, and having the best time doing it all will always be amazing memories for me, so I love getting to go back and seeing the undergrads carry on the traditions I was apart of. Plus, Homecoming brings friends into town from far and wide -- reuniting my awesome CE study group for the first time since graduation, getting to see sorority sisters and other friends that I've lost contact with or just haven't seen in a while -- and even if our football team is having a rough time this year, (being a fan is about taking the bad with the good, right?) having everyone in town makes it a bit better.
Sadly, my Jackets did not pull out a win on Homecoming, but I did get to see many of my favorite people and had a great time that day!
