Homecoming Week

BY LIV RIVERA

Homecoming week was a blast! It was definitely one of the best experiences I've had at Samford so far! The week began with the Bulldog Bash celebration on the quad complete with art, live music, food, and tons of games! I attended with my friends and we were thoroughly pleased with the donuts, free cotton candy, grilled cheese sandwiches, and delicious s'mores! We had a great time singing along with the student-composed band and we loved watching the athlete and dance team dance off! We observed in awe as each sorority, fraternity, and other student organizations painted a mural representing their bulldog spirit and we laughed as we each took our turn riding the mechanical bull!

After the Bash, we headed over to Vestavia with everyone else for free bowling. We played 3 games and made memories that will last a lifetime!

Additionally, we attended the homecoming ball on Thursday. Siegbert gym was completely transformed into an elegant dance hall! There were beautiful curtains and chandeliers, amazing desserts, and an awesome band! Everyone looked so nice in their suits and gowns and everyone was so happy to be with their friends and dates!

The homecoming queen and king were announced and it seemed simply perfect. The night was like a fairytale! I'm a little sad that homecoming week is over, but I had lots of fun and made tons of great memories!

I cannot wait to see what's in store next year! I hope you'll be here to enjoy it with me.
