In case you didn’t know… this weekend is HOMECOMING!!!!! Woohoo!!!!
But wait, what is Homecoming you ask? Well, if you were spared from Western corporate educational rituals for the larger portion of your life (*cough*—homeschoolers), or even if you were one of those who were blatantly exposed to the good, the bad, and the ugly in all of secular society (public schoolers, you know who you are), or if you have lived in some random country across the globe up until now… this article is for you.
Homecoming is a fun-filled week, typically in the Fall, where the college welcomes back its cherished alumni and throws a multitude of celebratory events in honor of them. If you went to public school, you will be relieved to learn that it does not include an awkward dance in the school gym. Bummer, I know. If you were homeschooled, then you better thank your lucky stars you didn’t have to experience such torture. Luckily, Homecoming in college is way better.
