SWOSU Homecoming Packets Available


The Southwestern Oklahoma State University Student Government Association now has Homecoming 2011 informational packets available at the SGA Center on the Weatherford campus.

Homecoming is October 15. This year’s theme is “Duke – To Infinity & Beyond.” Included in the packet is everything needed to participate in this year’s events, according to SGA Special Projects Secretary Maria Ortega.  

Information is available for any organization that would like to sponsor a 2011 Homecoming King and/or Queen candidate. Any campus organization can sponsor a candidate. The form for Homecoming candidate entry is due no later than Tuesday, September 20, by 5 p.m. in the Dean of Students office, Stafford Center Room 214, or at the SGA Center.

Also included is the Homecoming parade float entry form. This information must be returned to the Public Relations & Marketing office, Administration Building Room 205, by 12 noon on Monday, October 10. The SWOSU Alumni Association is providing an allocation form to help supplement the cost of constructing the float. This is due in the Public Relations & Marketing office by Wednesday, September 28.  

Another participation opportunity is the Lawn Decorating Contest. Contact the Alumni Office, Burton House, for more information.

The final form included is the SWOSU Bed Race. The bed race is traditionally the final event of the Homecoming Parade. Student organizations create and decorate a bed on wheels to race down Main Street. This form is due by 5 p.m. on Friday, October 7. SGA will award a $250 prize to the winner of the race and to the best decorated bed.
