My Homecoming Weekend

Posted by on Sunday, October 22, 2017 in Football, General Information, Student Life.

October at Vanderbilt is easily one of my favorite times of the year. October means Halloween, the leaves are changing colors, and most importantly, Homecoming! I truly love Homecoming because of the numerous events on campus and the many alumni reminiscing on their own times at Vanderbilt. Here’s a quick summary of what I did during Homecoming Weekend!


We had our homecoming concert a.k.a Commodore Quake! It was in Memorial Gym, and my friends and I were in the very front on the floor. SZA and Migos performed, and it was an awesome concert!

Voices of Praise (VOP), the gospel choir that I am a member of, had their alumni dinner. We also had small performances from different VOP ministries during the dinner. In addition, the homecoming block party was later on that night, and I got a free t-shirt which always makes me happy!

That morning, we had our homecoming football game. We played University of Georgia (UGA), and even though it briefly rained, it was still a fun game! During halftime, since Vanderbilt does not designate a Homecoming Queen, the award of Outstanding Senior was awarded. This award can be given to a senior of any gender, and it is voted on by the student body.

Overall, I truly had an exciting Homecoming Weekend, and I can’t wait for Homecoming next year!
