It’s Homecoming week for Pasadena City College and Associated Students is hard at work to pump students up and spread school spirit around campus.
Activities are being held in the quad at PCC all week to get students excited. Vice President for campus activities, David Zepeda is leading the charge to get students involved.
On Tuesday, Dog Haus hot dogs were given to students, a bungee run was held, the PCC band played in the quad and the court was announced.
The homecoming court consists four potential candidates. Brandon Ma and Jonathan Reed are running for king and Vanessa Macaias and Jaleisa Jacobs are running for queen. A single king and queen will be chosen.
Students jousted with inflatable lances Wednesday. A rock wall will be available for students to climb in the quad on Thursday.
A tailgate will also be held on Saturday at 3:00 pm in parking lot structure five, second floor.
“The purpose of homecoming week is to build school spirit leading up to the homecoming game to support our athletic football team,” said Zepeda.
Of course, the main homecoming event happens Saturday when the Lancers take on the Pirates at the Robinson Stadium. Kick-off for the game will be at 6:00 pm.
The Homecoming court will be out in the quad Thursday Nov. 7 at noon to speak to students about themselves and why everyone should vote for them.
Voting is open to students from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm in the quad during homecoming week. Students must have a school ID or driver’s license to vote and they will only be permitted to vote once. Votes will be counted Friday and the king and queen will be crowned during halftime of the football game Saturday.
