Homecoming Committee application due Friday

Homecoming 2011 will be held Oct. 8 in Bryant-Denny Stadium, when the Crimson Tide competes with the Vanderbilt University Commodores. Student Government Association Homecoming Committee applications are due Friday so the planning can begin.

“Committee members are directly involved in the execution and planning of each and every aspect of Homecoming at the University,” said Executive Homecoming Director Katie Mellown. “These projects and events range from the [National Pan-Hellenic] Step Show to the intricate lawn decorations that adorn the campus, to the rigorous Dodgeball Competition at the [Student] Recreation Center.”

Mellown said the time commitment involved in a homecoming committee ranges on the person’s willingness to participate and jump in. She said the homecoming committee is looking for members who are excited about homecoming and want to be a part of the team. Each committee member is required to attend their committee’s specific events and weekly meetings leading up to the week of homecoming.

“Each committee poses different tasks they need to accomplish in order for their event/project to be conducted in the proper manner,” Mellown said. “Committee members assist the director of their event or project on any tasks that are necessary, ranging from talking to local businesses for raffle donations, to working with faculty and staff about building and grounds regulations, to planning a seating chart for the choreography competition.”

Applications can be picked up in the SGA office or found online at under the “Forms” tab.  They are to be submitted via email to [email protected] or turned into the SGA office at the Ferguson Center—Room 231—by Friday at 5 p.m.
