Giddy-up to homecoming on Oct. 2nd
By Julian De Ocampo ’13
Last year Student Council brought students to a tropical island for Homecoming, but this year they have a different idea in mind.
Homecoming this year is going to be themed “Wild Night in the West.”
“Our goal is to have the Great Hall be a big dance floor,” said Assistant Principal of Student Activities Mr. Jeff Glosser.
“Outside we’ll have a western band. Line dancing, square dancing, and live music going on outside, and (we’ll) have some surprises set up for it,” Mr. Glosser said. “(We’re) trying to get a mechanical bull and have some of that going. We’re still working on the other entertainment.”
The ideas came out of student council brainstorming sessions.
“We were just spitballing ideas ranging from ‘safari’ to a whole bunch of other stuff and ‘western’ came up,” Student Council member Nate Hoffman ’13 said.
Student Council hopes that this will be another successful dance.
“What the students want is opportunities to meet Xavier girls, have fun and dance,” Mr. Glosser said. “(Homecoming) seems to be one of those ways.”
“We have great expectations. I mean, it’s Homecoming,” Nate Hoffman ’13 said. “It’s one of our best dances of the year.”
Mr. Glosser also revealed that he had one more surprise up his sleeve when he announced who the dance’s DJ would be.
“We’re going to bring back Bryce Muzzy,” he said, referring to the veteran DJ and recently graduated Brophy alumnus from the class of 2010.
Homecoming will import the Wild West to the Harper Great Hall Oct. 2, the day after the varsity football game with Red Mountain High School.
Tickets will soon be on presale for $10 from Student Council members and from Ms. Dennard in the SAC.
They will also be available for $15 at the door.
