Homecoming Captain Applications Posted

The applications for 2010 Homecoming Captains have just been posted. True to the spirit of how we do things here at Dear Old State, homecoming’s a huge production. There are 13 total committees with a handful of positions on each. There are 3 relations committees (Alumni, University, and Public), and the positions range all the way from Security to Ice Cream Social Captain.

Should you be selected to be a captain, you’ll be under the Homecoming Executive Committee, made up of 16 of the more ambitious Penn Staters you’ll meet. A lot of them, from their bio pages, are involved in THON and a bunch of other groups around campus as well.

The application itself is fairly simple; with the usual name, class, major stuff, and then five short answer type questions about why you want to be part of Homecoming, how you will contribute, and all that good stuff. You can download the application here. If you apply, good luck!
