The theme for homecoming this year is “Level up Lions.” It’s in honor of video games that students and alumni love so much.

In the Homecoming Parade you could see that theme in the fun floats and costumes. Nintendo’s Mario Kart from the CAB (Campus Activities Board), Ms. PacMan from Alpha Sigma Alpha and we even saw a float themed around Tetris.
