After Spirit Week, Lindenwood’s Homecoming Dance took place at Evans Commons last Saturday night at 8 p.m. About 300 Lindenwood students danced the night away after the football game earlier that day. Attendees showed up wearing fancy outfits from the 20s to ultimate vanguard outfits in order to match with the week’s theme “Through the Decades.”

Not only were outfits from different decades part of the theme, but music was also going “through the decades.” “We are trying to switch songs from 70s, 80s, 90s, 2000s; the DJ is doing a good job, people are dancing and having fun,” said Amandine Deligny, staff member at Homecoming. Hits such as Lynyrd-Skynyrd’s “Sweet Home Alabama,” Michael Jackson’s “Wanna Be Startin’ Something,” Rednex’s “Cotton Eye Joe” and many others were played during the night by Party Pro’s DJ service. “I came here to have fun, and it is my freshman year so I wanted to have a new experience. Besides the music is good and it looks like people who are dancing are having lots of fun,” said attendee Camila Herrera.

Moreover, attendees had access to various buffet and drink options such as virgin mojitos and Swedish meatballs. The Homecoming Court also enjoyed their time during the dance. “I feel blessed and excited to be here having fun. I am glad my family and friends supported me all the way. I was really surprised,” said Mary Becker, Homecoming Queen. The dance ended at 11 p.m. after students had enough dancing and fun with their friends.
