Egg-hunt, comedian, and King & Queen Activity for Everone for Homecoming because UH is such a big campus. We try to get everyone involved in Homecoming," said chairperson Kimberly Wigginton. "I especially enjoyed David Spade, he was cool. I had never seen so many people at a UH function before. I was amazed," said Freshman Gabriel Urquizo. The festivities led up to the much anticipated bonfire. Southern Methodist University's mascot was set a flames and the UH alma mater was chanted by all. "My favorite part of Homecoming Week was the bonfire. It's probably the only time of the school year everyone gets together and shows school spirit," said Senior Steven Ullrich. It's just like any normal day at UH, except for the excitement on campus as everyone gears up for Homecoming week. Alumni use Homecoming week to catch up with old friends and school mates while undergraduates use the opportunity to relax, take a break from studies and have a good time with all the activities. "It was really nice to meet the old alumni. I'm glad we get the chance to meet one another and celebrate our university," said Delta Gamma Elizabeth Van Staveren. The week was full of various activities directed toward both students and alumni. "We like to have different activities and events "•••only time of the year everyone gets together and shows school spirit," Ullrich said- JoAnn Stephens 18 6[j) he Homecoming King and Queen were ^•^ announced at half-time during the football game.

University Outdates Homecoming Tradition. Homecoming is not as old as people perceive it to be. The tradition really began in 1947, twelve years after UH became a four year college. The reason for not having a football team was the fact that UH did not have a football team until 1947 Therefore, no football team, no homecoming. In 1992, the homecoming committee proposed a theme of 65 years of homecoming, until they were told that the university hadn't been involved in intercollegate athletics in 1927. They eventually used the university's anniversary to promote a roaring twenties homecoming. That first homecoming was held in 1947, justone day before the game. The day was full of events which started out with morning events that included breakfast, afternoon events, and in the evening there was a Football Banquet and afterwards a Cavalier's Ball. When students were asked if they would miss homecoming if the event was discontinued the responses varied from being disappointed to apathetic. " I would not really miss it because I feel that the sororities and fraternities have a monopoly on it and it would really be them that would miss it. I don't think many students would miss it," said Business Major Sophomore Christie Nguyen. Student Life i Homecoming 65) 19
