Homecoming Announces Inaugural Alumni Court
Homecoming isn’t until October, but the Executive Committee is busy working to make “A Legacy To Shape The Future” the best yet. In addition to the Student and University Court, alumni who served as Homecoming Court honorees can apply to be on the inaugural Alumni Court.
The idea for the Alumni Court came from this year’s Homecoming Royalty Director, Kelly Gastgeb, who sees it as a chance for former and current honorees to share their stories and connect with one another. The application is available online and includes five Stately questions, like “What does For The Glory mean to you?”
The Homecoming Executive Committee will review the applications and decide on 10 Alumni Court honorees. The selected group will be featured in the parade and participate in a number of events throughout Homecoming weekend.
“The reason I got involved in Homecoming in the first place is because I really like connecting with alumni, especially those who are older,” Gastgeb said in a press release. “I think it’ll be really cool to hear their reasons, and see if maybe they parallel with mine, for why we love the university. That’d be a really awesome connection for students and alumni to make.”
The weeklong Homecoming festivities will take place from October 4-10, with a noon kick on Saturday against Indiana.
