The University of Nebraska at Kearney will host a week of homecoming activities, “The Spirit of a Century,” beginning September 29-October 4. During the week, ten residence halls, ten Greek houses, and three university organizations have formed teams to battle in various homecoming competitions.
On Monday, September 29, Limbo will be held at 4 p.m. in the Nebraskan Student Union courtyard. On Tuesday student teams will compete in tricycle races at 4 p.m. also in the courtyard. The Crazylimpics, scheduled for Wednesday at 4 p.m. in the courtyard, will showcase these teams competing in messy food obstacle courses. Lip Sync, the Spirit Competition and the Royalty Crowing begin at 7 p.m. in the Health and Sports Center. On Friday, the Lawn Display Competition will be showcased and judged at 2 p.m. Finally on Saturday, the homecoming parade will start at 10 a.m. on Central Avenue in downtown Kearney followed by the UNK vs. Adams State football game beginning at 1 p.m. at Foster Field.
According to Karla Falk, coordinator of Student Activities, Thursday’s schedule, which includes Lip Sync, was very popular last year.
“Last year we had nearly 1,200 spectators come to enjoy the amusing Lip Sync competition,” Falk said.
UNK homecoming activities are funded by UPFF and sponsored by the Loper Programming and Activities Council.
