Venture Out for Homecoming

Whether you are an incoming first-year, a transfer student, or are a returning student that has not gone yet, this is definitely your year to experience Homecoming! Keeping in mind my experience from last year, here are some recommendations for fun activities and events to check out during this year’s celebration.

Although this event does not take place on the day of Homecoming itself, the Homecoming Pageant is definitely a don’t-miss. The event was pretty fun last year, allowing students to get a glimpse of the Homecoming court and be a part of the selection process for Homecoming royalty. I also liked how I was able to get to know the Homecoming court before the crowning ceremony. As a first year who didn’t know many people, it was nice to recognize some familiar faces.

Last year during Homecoming, I definitely feel like I was able to get a good sense of the different activities to do during the day itself. I spent the morning with friends grabbing food in a packed ECC and playing bingo in the Dunn Conference Suite, which is always a great activity at BSU (and I may be biased because I actually ended up winning a Polaroid camera that day). 

The second part of my day was spent with my family tailgating before the football game. I think this is one of the more exciting activities to do with families, especially if you come from an alumni family and get to see everyone reunite from their college years. This is a great way to find BSU bears, new and old, to connect with and celebrate an exciting Homecoming!

A final shoutout goes to the alumni tent where I will be asking my parents to sneak me food from (sadly I am not allowed in #hurt).

Black Excellence

Welcome to Black History Month! The time of the year where everyone pretends to care about the struggles of Black people just to move on the second March 1 hits (until Juneteenth, that is). Now, I could talk about white people trying to turn the fade into the “Travis Kelce,” (he/him) or Nicki Minaj (she/her) […]

Ode to Maya Hawke

I recently stumbled across my “Ode to Valentine’s Day” from this time last year. Oh boy. I genuinely laughed. No, not because I find myself funny, but because when you learn more about yourself, it makes looking back on your past-self that much more cringeworthy. I wrote in the Ode, “I’m literally the most non-girlfriend […]

Letter to the Editor: Campus Food Insecurity

The following letter was submitted from Dr. Kathy Bailey’s Social Work 508 class and has been lightly edited for clarity. Food insecurity among college students is an issue that flies under the radar, yet a host of students have found themselves not knowing where their next meal is coming from. Although about one in three […]

The Barbz Are Not Alright…

Now there is a lot of context missing, but frankly, I would need this whole page to get into it. So let’s talk about “HISS,” the most recent Megan Thee Stallion (she/her) track. Now, I wouldn’t classify this as a diss track, as it seems to come for a lot of different people in the […]
