A smorgasbord of events rests in front of Kent State University students, faculty and alumni during this week for Homecoming 2011. I’m excited!

These events are held all over campus and are differentiated by majors, associations, clubs, and whatever else you can think of. This can make Homecoming week a little overwhelming. Don’t allow that to push you away from the fun. I figured for my blog this week I will highlight some of the fun events that I have either gone to in the past or would like to go to this year.

Bounce Madness

This sounds like a ridiculously good time. Tonight in the KSC Ballroom starting at 7 p.m., large, interactive bounce structures will be set up to challenge your athletic ability, Gladiator Jousting will give you an opportunity to challenge your friends and a Titanic slide will make you feel like a kid at a carnival. I think that’s the point. The entire room will be set up for a carnival feel and even include free goodies. Unfortunately, I have to work tonight, so let me know if this is fun!

Jack Hannah’s Exotic Animals

I went to this my freshman year and it was awesome. Although, I may be a little biased, since I’m an animal lover! Hannah brought monkeys, snakes, wild cats and other cool animals the year that I went. It didn’t get boring either, he made it interesting and pretty quick. If this event is held anything like it was a couple of years ago, you should stop out at 5 p.m. tomorrow in the KSC Kiva to see what creatures Hannah brings this time!

“Fall into Fashion” Fashion Show

I’ve always heard wonderful things about our fashion program here at Kent, so this event intrigues me. Tomorrow at 7 p.m. in the KSC Ballroom, this fashion show will feature Halloween costumes, fall clothing and Kent attire made by KSU design students. If you want to attend, you must contact Diamond Towns at 614-584-6734 or dtowns2@kent.edu for tickets.

Bowman Cup 5k Race

I have always wanted to run in a 5k! If you’re into running, today is the last day to sign up. The Bowman cup will start Saturday morning at 8 a.m. It’s 20 dollars to enter. Here’s how you attend!

The main event

My friend and I at a past Homecoming game!

Of course, I’m talking about the game! I just love the atmosphere at the Homecoming football games. Everyone is so excited and ready for our boys pull a “W.” This year the KSU football team plays Miami at 3:30. Be there!

Well, those are all of the events that have caught my eye for the week. If you know of other events going on for Homecoming 2011 at Kent, let us know! Enjoy the week of festivities!
