Welcome to a new semester and a new year! 2010 WOW can you believe a we’re already a decade into the new millennium? I feel like it went way to fast. Anyways this is my first blog of the semester and there is A LOT going on this week for homecoming. So let me do a week overview….
Tuesday: UDM student life hosted The Real Deal Crazy Game Show in Grounds Coffeehaus. It was a blast. Around 50+ students showed up and participated. The energetic host chose students from the crowd at random to participate. They tried to answer some random question. If they got it right they spun the wheel! If wrong, they had to complete a slightly embarrassing or difficult task in a short period of time. Then they could spin the wheel! The wheel designated how much $$$ they win. Then the participant was given the option of keeping the cash or opening a mystery box that could have a more valuable prize or something cheap. A few students won cash, others won a can of mushrooms. The big winner of the night won an mp3 player valued at $125!! The energy in Grounds was contagious throughout the show as the game show host amped up the crowd. I’m sorry for those who missed the action, but you better try to make it next time!
Wednesday: TONIGHT! from 7-10:30pm is the famous CASINO NIGHT! This year it features comedian Michael Dean Ester. For those of you who haven’t experienced a casino night, it is a vital part of the udm experience. Every year has an amazing turnout with some of the best prizes for students to win. I remember my freshmen year my roommate won an XBOX 360! This year prizes include: Nintendo Wii, DVDs/Blue Rays, gift cards, digital cameras, GPS, and ipod shuffles. Come out to play the classic casino games like blackjack, poker, and roulette. PLUS student life gives out FREE homecoming T-SHIRTS to all students who attend. A little word of advice is to go earlier than later because smaller sizes run out fast!
Thursday: Come show your TITAN SPIRIT at the Spirit day/Pep Rally in the Fountain Lounge from 1-2pm. I walked by earlier today and saw the chairs and balloons already set up and ready to go. The pep band will play, the Titans in Motion will dance, and the cheer team will cheer! What else could you ask for!? T-shirts will also be given away during this rally.
Friday: The UDM Showcase will be going on from 11-3pm. Hear most of the school’s student organizations will have tables set up with info to hand out to interested students. This is a great way to see whats available on campus to become involved in! If you’re new on campus or want to be part of an organization this showcase is a must.
OF course later that night is the OFFICIAL HOMECOMING PARTY/CONCERT! This will be in the ballroom from 9pm-2am. This is open to EVERYONE so bring your friends, family, or whoever but make sure you show up!
Saturday: THE BIG GAME! Calihan Hall 2-4pm UDM vs Wright State! The basketball team has been having their best year since I’ve been here so this is definitely the year to watch. The student section will be wild as we cheer the Titans to VICTORY!!
