The University of Tampa’s 2009 homecoming, themed “Spartan Circus,” will officially kick off Tuesday.
Each year, the Student Productions Homecoming Committee hopes to put on a show outshining previous homecoming events.
The Homecoming Committee, which consists of seven students, has planned an array of events for the four-day celebration.
Activities include a kick-off party, Chalk the Walk, Casino Night, banner making, a parade and a tailgate party.
New to this year’s tailgate will be the Pie-a-Professor event, where students will be able to throw a pie in a professor’s face.
Dance Happening and the Women’s Volleyball game are also on the homecoming program.
Christine Halby, president of the Homecoming Committee, said the goal of this year’s homecoming is to get students more involved by adding more student organization events to the program.
“We’re trying to make it more school spirited by having students involved in all the events,” she said.
Nineteen organizations have registered for Homecoming and 14 of these organizations will be present at the parade.
There are five king and five queen nominees.
To vote for this year’s homecoming king and queen, log onto the SG course in Blackboard. Voting begins Monday and ends Oct. 23 at noon.
