The final elections for Homecoming Queen took place on Oct. 19 and 20, as Homecoming Day arrives this Saturday,

The seven remaining women had their last chance to get votes from students.

“[Homecoming Day will be] pretty exciting, and pretty nerve-wracking. I don’t know what to expect from it,” Lilly Hernandez, kinesiology major and No. 3 candidate sponsored by the Kabarkada Club, said.

Hernandez talked about her experience about running for homecoming queen.

“[My experience] is pretty fun, some of the other candidates get into it, hopefully the best one wins.”

Britney Salazar, accounting major and No. 4 candidate from the Board of Accountancy Club, said that she was excited about Homecoming Day.

“I’m so excited, I have my dressed picked out and everything,” she said.

Salazar also said, “It’s nice to start meeting people on campus and having to put yourself out there, and also to talk to people you wouldn’t normally meet.”

Salazar said that she loved every minute of Homecoming and enjoyed meeting the candidates.

“I’ve enjoyed meeting all of the other Homecoming Queen candidates, they’re all super sweet,” she said.

The Homecoming Elections were put on hold due to the earthquake drill that started at 10:20 a.m.

Math major and No. 5 candidate of the iFalcon Club Raquel Ramirez talked about what she did during the drill.

“I think [the earthquake drill] did (interrupt the elections), but overall, I think it was alright because [my group] was out there campaigning.

“We had a bunch of people just milling around, waiting for something to do, so we figured we could give them candy and flyers, and hopefully get some votes out of them.”

The Homecoming Queen will be announced at halftime at the Homecoming Game when the Cerritos College Football team plays against El Camino College on Saturday at 7 p.m.
