SWOSU Students Sponsoring Food Drive Challenge During Homecoming
October 4, 2011
Southwestern Oklahoma State University students are sponsoring a food drive in conjunction with this year’s SWOSU Homecoming activities on the Weatherford campus.
The Homecoming Challenge is between students who live in one of the residence halls on campus (Red team) vs. all other students (Blue team).
The food drive will benefit the Weatherford Food Pantry and sponsors for the drive are the Collegiate Activities Board, Residence Life G-squared, and the SWOSU Art Club.
Food items can be delivered one of two ways. Both Residence Life and CAB will have deposit stations set up at the SWOSU homecoming football game tailgate parties on Saturday, October 15. Donation of food items can also be dropped off at the Residence Life Office, located at the southwest corner of Neff Hall, and in the Dean of Students Office, located in Room 214 of Stafford Center.
Two SWOSU students who participate in the food drive will win laptop computers at halftime of the homecoming game. Students receive one laptop ticket for every two food items they give. There will be a winner from each of the Red and Blue teams. Residence Life students should donate at the Res-Life Office to receive their red tickets, while other students should donate at the Dean of Students Office to receive blue tickets. The Art Department Office will give both red and blue laptop tickets.
