It has been over a month since the entirety of Wesleyan participated in the biggest week of the year, Homecoming. It goes without saying that this event is unparalleled in its size and significance to Wesleyan. It is the event that brings the past, present and future of the school together to experience true community and comradery. It is the event that every student looks forward to each year with great anticipation. It is the event that introduces the freshmen to their high school maturation and begins the seniors send off into college preparation. It is the ambitious, auspicious occasion at the beginning of the year that sets the tone and gives the school enthusiastic inspiration. Homecoming is a memorable affair that every year, gets bigger and bigger.
Homecoming season began with the reveal of its theme and this year’s Homecoming reveal was nothing short of explosive, literally. On the first Monday of the school year, students filed into Austin Chapel with eagerness. They were treated to a viewing of the trailer put together by student government. After watching the trailer, it was revealed to them that the theme for this year would be: “Out of this World.” A theme that not only encompassed space, stars and planets, but the idea of innovative thinking and imagination. A common idea presented by the entire student government was the concept of not just thinking “out of the box,” but thinking “out of this world” in order to have the greatest school year possible. This concept really resonated with the entire school.
