This time of year always brings my favorite event of the season….Homecoming! While I was still in school, it was time of year to meet new people and celebrate on the busy campus with a week of activities! But since I've graduated, it's become a time to reconnect with old friends and spend a little time on the campus that has a special place in my heart. It's always interesting to meet those who have crossed ahead of you and to look back at those who you've surpassed. UNCG has been a home to so many amazing people, and homecoming is one time every year when we can call it home again.
This year I spent most of the weekend celebrating alongside the guys who I spent so many crazy weekends with all four years of college! Friday night was the kickoff event, at a private lounge in a local Greensboro brewery with a bar, pool table, darts, and big cozy couches where all the alumni got a chance to mingle with the new faces and spend a night out on the town!
Saturday was more of a progressive party, and while wearing Spartan blue and gold, I couldn't wait for the day's festivities! They began with a bloody mary and mimosa brunch, serving mini queshes and breakfast items to start out the day. After the morning mingle we headed to campus with the younger crowd and spend the afternoon playing cornhole and enjoying the company of other greek tents and more recent alumni. The campus events were all family friendly and provided balloon animals, moon bounces, and an arts & crafts table set up for the kids! My EUC (UNCG's student center) worker reunion was also Saturday afternoon, and went great! It was so good to see the people who I had spent so much of my college career with! I worked there all four years so many of them have seen me grow up!
We ended the day with dinner and a party that went into the night for alumni, brothers, and friends! I couldn't have asked for a better day, or better people to spend it with! Happy Homecoming UNCG!
