Students, faculty, staff and alumni are invited to join in this year’s annual Homecoming festivities.
“Showdown at the Dome” is the theme for this year’s event on March 2 at the Texan Dome on the Levelland campus. All SPC clubs, organizations and resident halls were asked to submit two nominees for the 2017 Homecoming King and Queen, and all students are encouraged to vote.
To qualify, every nominee must be a full-time student from any of the SPC locations.
The Homecoming election will be held on Feb. 22 and Feb. 23 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on both the Levelland and the Reese Center campuses. On the Levelland campus, the voting will be held in the mall area in front of the Bookstore. Voting at the Reese Center campus will be held in Room 807 in Building 8. To vote, students must present a current SPC ID card.
The winners will be announced during half time of the Lady Texan and Texan basketball games on March 2.
Student Life encourages all students, faculty and organizations to participate in the Homecoming activities throughout the week. On Feb. 27, students can wear pajamas to class to “Put WTC to Sleep.” On Feb. 28, all of SPC can wear hats to “Throw Some Shade at WTC.” On March 1, everyone can wear cowboy boots to “Boot Out WTC.” And lastly, everyone can dress up in all their Texan gear for game day on March 2.
Student Life also will be hosting a door decorating contest throughout the week for faculty and staff members, as well as a Homecoming dance for students after the game in the Sundown Room of the Student Center on the Levelland Campus.
“Homecoming is a time to show your school spirit, get the basketball team amped up for an upcoming victory and gives students something to do on campus,” said Ann Epps, director of student life at SPC. “My projections for this year’s homecoming activities is to have a great turn out, with everyone coming out to show school spirit and support SPC and make it a great night for everyone.”
