Homecoming season has arrived. From the football games and parades to the formals and alumni reunions, homecoming is a time of year that lots of college students and alumni look forward to. It’s a time to not only celebrate and have a good time as students soon prepare for midterms, but also a time to reunite with friends who have already graduated and show school spirit.

With all the homecoming festivities come endless Instagram posts from you friends and classmates documenting all the fun. Try scrolling through your feed during Homecoming Week without seeing numerous homecoming pictures flood in — you probably can’t. While you may have pictures that can serve as mementos, the hardest thing is now coming up with cute captions that truly capture your feelings, while remaining trendy and simplistic too.
