Homecoming 2020 is right around the corner here at AU!
This longstanding week of traditions kicks off on February 17 with the “Wear Blue, Get Food” festival, and ends on February 22 with the coronation of Homecoming King and Queen during the home basketball games against Young Harris College.
Homecoming is much more than coming to events, though. Below are five ways to get involved!
1. Vote for candidates.
This is one of the most important ways to show your homecoming spirit! Voting for King, Queen, Duke, and Duchess will begin on Monday, February 17, and links to voting will be sent to your augusta.edu email address.
FYI: Your email is the best way to get information about events—so make sure to check both your “Focused” and “Other” folders on Outlook, so you don’t miss updates.
2. Dress out.
Homecoming is all about school spirit: So what better way to show your AU pride than with a little JagSwag? Be sure to wear AU colors all week to class, or even better, dress in theme! This year’s homecoming theme is “Early 2000s.”
Unsure about 2000s fashion? Tube tops, denim jackets, velour tracksuits, capri pants, low-rise jeans, cowl-neck blouses, and layered shirts are all great options.
3. Show love on social media and AU news sites.
Share your homecoming pictures on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter using the hashtag #AUHOMECOMING. You might just get reposted by The CREW (@aug_thecrew) and Student Life & Engagement (@aug_studentlife) on IG.
4. Register for the talent show.
A tradition at Augusta University homecoming, the annual talent show—lovingly called “AU Idol”—is a chance for students to showcase their talent.
Previously an event exclusive to student organizations, this year, all students are encouraged to apply.
To apply for AU Idol, fill out the talent show registration form. The deadline to sign up is Thursday, February 6 at 5 pm.
5. Become a Homecoming Ambassador.
If you love homecoming, becoming an ambassador is a great way to show it. Homecoming Ambassadors promote AU homecoming by word of mouth and through social media both before and during homecoming.
Becoming an ambassador is an excellent way to get more active on campus (and, of course, get a free T-shirt). Applications are open until Friday, January 24 at 4 pm. Learn more about the homecoming ambassadors program.
Homecoming 2020 is just a few weeks away—and with these tips, you’ll be ready for it. Visit Student Life & Engagement’s website for a full list of Homecoming 2020 events.
