The Top 5 Things You Missed from Homecoming Week

First, I'm going to start off by saying a big thank you from the Office of Student Involvement and the Homecoming Committee for helping us to make Homecoming 2016 a success! It wouldn't have been possible without you. Okay, now about what you missed out on.

SAC Comedians

Student Activities Council did a great job with who they picked for entertainment this year. Dulce Sloan and Ian aber were hilarious. The comedy show was open to the public and many members of the Maryville community came out to have a laugh. 164 tickets were sold for the show.

Variety Show

Congratulations to  Brooke Ravenscraft and Jacob Wood the Homecoming 2016 queen and king! This year the skits and talents were on a whole other level. Everyone brought their A game and made the variety show one to remember. One special highlight was when UPD danced to Formation by Beyonce. So much creativity and laughter filled the Ron Houston Center. You can look on the Student Involvement page to see who won!


All 102 entries made waking up early to see the parade worth it. The diversity that was within the parade and throughout the crowd made me proud to be a Bearcat. Seeing the floats, paper mache heads and grabbing all of the candy definitely made the parade a hit.

Football Game

Bearcats, you did it again! The game sold out and had a final score of 69-10 against Pitt State. Senior quarterback Kyle Zimmerman had the honor of being named MIAA's athlete of the week and was the Don Black award winner. This award was given to the MVP of the homecoming game. If you didn't go to the football game you definitely missed out. The bearcats remain undefeated!

Bearcat Tailgating

You should have seen how many people were tailgating this year. It was hard to drive through that side of campus, much less find somewhere to park. Many organizations use the tailgate as a chance to fundraise. This year Alternative Spring Break earned an amazing $800 from donations during the tailgate. ASB will be traveling to Baton Rouge, Louisiana in efforts to help heal the lives that were affected by the flood this past fall.

Homecoming this year was a success and everyone's contributions helped make that happen. It'll be interesting to see what next year has in store.
