Homecoming Activity Night swarms campus

Homecoming committee held an activities night at the social science patio on October 6,  where free pizza and soda was given out to the evening students.

Cerritos College students only needed their current student ID to receive the complimentary food and drinks from the homecoming committee members.  

While refreshments were handed out, the homecoming court candidates walked around the Cerritos College campus and entered classrooms with the professor’s permission, to let the students know about the upcoming homecoming events at Cerritos College.

“We’re trying to get everybody to join in on homecoming activities and root for the Falcons. Its very important because not a lot of people are informed about what is going on in college and it should be a fun experience for everyone.” Homecoming court candidate Teresa Gonzalez said.

The homecoming events are a tradition that has been apart of Cerritos College since 1955. Taking place this fall semester the tradition is continued with the promotion for campus involvement.

Activities night allowed the homecoming committee to advertise upcoming events at Cerritos College, by handing out flyers listing the events that are for the month of October. Homecoming member, Aerial Hughes, who was a representative of activities night, wanted to remind students about the events that they can participate in before or after school.

“We want to get people involved because we know a lot of people just come to school and go home or  go to work. We want them to know that you can get involved and do something else. That’s another reason why we have things like [activities night,] Hughes said.

By having homecoming events such as activities night, and homecoming elections gives the privilege for all Cerritos College students to take an interest in school clubs and committees. The effort students put into the extra curricular activities can also improve their resume for a transfer to a university of choice.

Directory of student activities, Holly Bogdanovich, who was present at activities night, wanted to have the event for night students to become aware of the school events  and to be reminded about the benefits of being on a committee and in a club.

“Really now-a-days colleges and universities are looking at students that get more involved. With them being so tight on who they can admit, if your one of the ten applications in a group and the school has one spot to fill. What makes you stand out from the other nine candidates that have the same GPA and major as you? What sets you apart is your involvement,” Holly Bogdanovich said.

Cerritos College students will have the chance to be involved by participating in the homecoming events during the week of October 11 through the 15. Student can volunteer at events like, Float building, which involves Cerritos College clubs making a boat with a theme of their choice and will be presenting it during half time at the homecoming football game on Saturday the 16.

Students can always volunteer to help out and vote for homecoming queen on Wednesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the social science patio, and student court patio. The winner will then revealed at the homecoming game.  

The week long events will end with a homecoming dance after the football game, on Saturday, October 16 in the student center, where all students are invited with one guest as long as they have their student ID.
