Homecoming History

What started out as a part of the Harvest Carnival in the fall of 1913 officially turned into Homecoming in 1920. From there came the house decorations and, in 1930, the parade down Main Street.

In 1946, there was 20,000 alumni and the largest parade which included over 50 floats. As the years went on, the house decorations became bigger than the floats and rather than drive to see these decorations, people began walking around.

Woof Is That You?

Good morning Cowboys,

This week Wally has decided not to go on an adventure as him and I prepare for America’s Greatest Homecoming Celebration. In his place, Woof will be wandering around and seeing what he can find amongst all the activity.

Hopefully, he doesn’t go anywhere he’s not supposed to, but you know how dogs are. He’s probably just going to stick his nose in some dirt or chase all the squirrels on campus.

In case you’re wondering, Wally has taught Woof how to scramble words almost as well as him. So, as always, good luck unscramblers.

- Windy
