Student Association (SA) is taking many steps to prepare for this year’s Homecoming. If you are not aware the theme of this years event is “RB goes Gaga,” so the outfits will be ridiculous, the decorations will be bold and different, and music will be centered around singer Lady Gaga.

Andy Krug, President of the Sophomore Class, said “We’re going to make the dance very gagalicious!”

SA is currently working hard to finish all the preparations for the dance. They have been painting banners to hang in the gym for homecoming to transform the main gym from empty and plain to exciting and colorful. Instead of painting people or objects they have decided to splatter paint to change things up a bit. They are also trying to get decorations that follow the theme, such as anything with neon colors and or with glitter.

“The theme definitely sets everything thing apart. I think girls will get more into it and maybe even guys,” Krug said.

Allison Hornung, SA Executive Board President, seemed very pleased with the success so far. She said, “Things have been going great.”

Hornung is happy with how smoothly things have been running and how much work SA has accomplished. They have picked out all the days for Spirit Week and are looking for the perfect party favors to give away. She’s also hoping to have the pep rally outside this year to help attract more people to the Homecoming Game on Friday the 17th.

SA is under a lot of pressure to coordinate all the necessary events leading up to Homecoming and finishing everything that needs to be made for the actual dance. There are seven different committees that are each in charge of different tasks such as finding ways to advertise the dance or just designing decorations. Each committee is under a lot of stress to finish everything in time for homecoming and the closer the dance, the more stressful it gets.

“I feel like the last week will be more stressful to make sure everything is finished,” Joanna Keen, SA Executive Vice President said.
