Do’s & Dont’s: Homecoming Edition

It’s that time of year where college students and alumni from all around come together to celebrate the legacy of their great alma mater. With everyone getting into the homecoming spirit, there some things that we all should keep in mind to make sure we have fun but stay on track. From the parties to the tailgate, HCNSU is providing you with a list of do’s and don’t that will make sure that you survive this homecoming. 


Do save accordingly! The homecoming season can become very expensive. So make sure you save up your coins so you can participate in the festivities.

Don’t Skip Class. Remember that you are always a student first, which means class comes first. Work hard then you can play hard. 

Do keep your phone charged. Anything can happen at any time, anywhere. Make sure you take that extra safety precaution and make sure you can always be reached or can reach out for help if needed.

Don’t wait till the last minute to do an assignment. Even though homecoming is only a week, a failing grade is forever.  

Do eat before you get lit. We all know with all the fun activities going on around campus, it can be easy to forget to stop and eat. Make sure before you go out to any event you have something on your stomach.

Don’t travel alone. With the huge crowds that come with the homecoming season, it is imperative to abuse the buddy system. Remember the people you arrive with are the people you leave with. 

Do plan ahead. Making a game plan is always a must when going into homecoming week. Get together with some friends and figure out what events you’re going to and when you’re just going to chill for the night.

Don’t wait to get tickets. With homecoming being on the pricier side, it is key that you get your tickets ahead of time. At least before they increase the price. 

Do network with alumni. Homecoming can be fun and everything, but it is also a great opportunity to network with alumni. You never know where a connection can get you later. 

Don’t forget to have fun! With everything else in mind, the most important thing is to have fun. You won’t be able to relive this any other time. So live it up while you can. Happy Homecoming!!!
