Students gathered in the mall area in front of the LSC to kickoff Homecoming Week on Monday at noon.
They listened to Sam Houston State University’s Bearkat Marching Band, gathered around SHSU cheerleaders and football players, and met the homecoming court.
The potential kings and queens gave speeches on why the student body should vote for them. Students were given free cookies and plenty of chances to showcase their own school spirit.
“I feel like the whole school gets to come together during spirit week,” Christian Bowsher, sophomore criminal justice major, said. “And we get to show everyone how much we love and support our campus.”
This week, students are going to be able to enjoy events like the Sam Jam Carnival Wednesday at 7 p.m., the Homecoming Parade on Thursday at 6:30 p.m., and the Homecoming Movie Night featuring Iron Man 3 in the Lowman Student Center theatre on Friday.
These events all lead up to the Homecoming game against Lamar University on Saturday at 2 p.m. For a complete list of events, visit shsu.edu.
