It’s finally here: Homecoming 2015! The exciting annual weekend of fun, food, games and school spirit has arrived, and this year, everyone seems to be stepping it up! “I enjoy Homecoming each year because our diverse student body has a chance to come together and have a great time participating in activities during the tailgate and cheering for our team during the game,” said senior communication studies major and member of the ASI Programming Board Kassy Riggle. Culminating on game day, Saturday, Nov. 14, Homecoming weekend is composed of various events – each of which is stuffed with a wide variety of exciting, fun and entertaining opportunities. The weekend of festivities begins with the Beach Night Rally at the Walter Pyramid on Thursday, Nov. 12, at 6:30 p.m. At the rally, students will be able to meet and greet members of the mighty Long Beach State men’s and women’s basketball teams as well as be introduced to this year’s Homecoming royal court. Attendees will also enjoy free food, blow-up jousting, prizes, performances, games and a ton of surprises!
