Homecoming is a staple of college life, and Lindenwood’s Homecoming dance is an event that excites many students on campus. This year’s homecoming dance will take place on Oct. 20, and go from 8:00 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.
Junior Heidi Morgan is the Homecoming Dance Chair, and is in charge of hiring a catering service and a DJ, and planning, setting up and taking down decorations. She is working with the other homecoming chairs to plan a successful homecoming week.
The dance’s theme is “The Golden Touch,” and is full of Lindenwood pride.
“The dance will be all about glitz and glam,” Morgan said. “I hope for everyone who attends to feel like royalty. There will be a red carpet at the entrance and a photo booth with a photographer taking pictures of all groups entering the dance.”
The DJ is LU senior Max Fosmire, who performs as @bsolutely. He plays a variety of music, both sampled and original, and his most popularly played genres include dance, house, dubstep and electronica.
“The turnout in the past few years has gotten better, so we hope that trend continues,” Morgan said.
As well as the dance, homecoming week is full of events for students. There will be a lip synching contest, The Maine and Mayday Parade concert and a blood rally and a pep rally at Hunter Stadium. Saturday is packed with events, starting with a 5K walk/run, the parade and the football game. The day will conclude with the dance.
