Bridgewater State University will be hosting its very first Spirit Week beginning October 16th. There are a number of ways in which BSU clubs and organizations can be involved. Don’t miss out on the opportunities to win cash prizes and represent your organization.
The Homecoming Pageant will begin October 16th from 6-10pm. On October 18th the Homecoming Parade will take place from 10am-noon. Afterwards, the Homecoming Football Game and Crowing of Winners will occur between 1-4pm.
All BSU campus groups are welcome to march without competing in the parade. Bring your own materials to share in the celebration of Bridgewater State University’s annual Homecoming festivities.
The Homecoming Float Competition is open to all student organizations. Five floats will be provided to student groups in order to be decorated and compete in a one-minute dance performance. A grand prize of $1,000 will be awarded to the float determined to be the best.
In addition, the Homecoming Parade Performance Competition is open to all student organizations, club-sports and residence halls. Only one group will be selected for the best performance.
A prize of $150 will be awarded for the best performance. The winning group may have a float or march and perform without a float. However, the float that wins best overall is not eligible for this cash prize.
Ten seniors must be selected to serve as the 2014 Homecoming Court. In order to be eligible in the Homecoming you must have senior standing and be available for an interview. Interviews will occur at the discretion of the Program Council.
The following events are mandatory for all court members: Homecoming Pageant, Homecoming Parade, Homecoming Football Game and Crowning of the winners.
If you want to be involved with Homecoming and Spirit Week, please contact Program Council.
