n true Mardi Gras fashion, a variety of spirited events marked Homecoming Week.

Highlights of the week included Monday’s Mardi Gras Madness, The Big Easy Pageant in Dewberry Hall, a can drive, a talent competition and a comedy show in the JC Cinema.

The two major snowstorms that caused the university to close for nearly a week earlier this month caused some disruptions to scheduling, but they were minimal and most plans were carried out smoothly.

“Everything is going well, especially [considering that] we had to change some things around because of the Snowpocalypse,” said Michelle Davis, Student Activities’ assistant director of programming.

“We were supposed to have a tent in the North Plaza with different activities and we couldn’t because of the snow, but we just moved it to the Johnson Center,” said Davis, “We still had at least 100 people come around every day to participate, and while we would have had more if we’d done it outside it was still successful.”
