The 2018 Homecoming applications for co-chairs and the steering committee are now open for any student on campus who wants to be part of one of the biggest alumni/student celebrations.
Co-chairs will have the responsibility of executing two to three events throughout the fall semester as well as interviewing and picking the steering committee members. They will also be speaking in Moody chapel the Friday before the big game.
Aubree Browning, Alumni Relations Officer, said that “being a co-chair helps you realize that you are part of something bigger” when you see the alumni filling up the stands. Each co-chair will attend two meetings a week from the beginning of the semester to the end of Homecoming. It is preferred that anybody applying for the position has served on the steering committee in the past, but not required.
The applications for co-chairs are due by Friday April 6, with interviews as the main decision-maker for selection. In the past, about 15 co-chairs applications are received with four being selected to serve as the co-chairs.
They will interview and select 15 students to be a part of the steering committee. These students will be expected to attend one meeting a week, work closely alongside the co-chairs and set up for events during Homecoming. The applications are due April 17, and there will also be an interview process.
Browning wanted to stress the importance of these student positions for the success of homecoming.
