Titans dig into Homecoming with Spoons

Homecoming week is underway, but there are still plenty of opportunities to get involved with the festivities. UW Oshkosh kicked off its Homecoming on Sunday as campus life organizations painted the windows in Reeve Memorial Union. On Monday, students participated in a spoons tournament that required participants to sign a waiver acknowledging the dangers that could ensue when the games were to get intense. On Tuesday, students participated in a talent show in the Reeve Memorial Union Ballroom. Wednesday night featured UWO’s annual Homecoming comedian. This year, Chris Distefano, who stars in MTV shows “Guy Code” and “Girl Code” was the featured comedian, performing in Albee Hall. Tonight’s events include the Residence Life and Greek Life house and hall decorating, as well as flag football at the Rec Plex. The homecoming comedian and the tailgating event on Saturday usually draw the biggest crowds and are planned by students in the Reeve Union Board beginning in early summer. The biggest draw of Homecoming is on Saturday, when alumni and families are invited to a day full of food and sports, featuring the football team’s Homecoming game versus UW-Eau Claire. “Saturday is a day of lots of free food, games and activities for families to enjoy with their students,” Missy Burgess, associate director for student involvement said. “There are so many thing to enjoy, and most of them are free. We hope they get a taste of how much fun life as a Titan can be.” Fraternities, sororities and residence halls are typically the most involved, although all students are welcome to participate in the events. “Greek Life is super into homecoming,” Lauren Perry, a member of Alpha Xi Delta said. “Our favorite event is probably the lip sync competition. That’s a really big one for us just because everyone gets so into it; they get to dress up, they get to make up a routine for their theme and they get to practice with like everyone who’s participating, and it’s always super fun.” Perry is one of several students running for Homecoming royalty. “I’m running because I wanted to represent Greek Life in a different way,” Perry said. “I think it’s super important to represent UWO in every aspect, rather than just in my organization, and I just really like that opportunity to get myself out there.” "" />
