As the weeks progress at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, different events are beginning to take place with regularity. Finally, Homecoming Week has arrived, which will include some of the most anticipated activities like the Cardboard Boat Races on the Chancellor’s Pond, Open Mic Night in the University Center, and topping it all off with a Tailgate and Homecoming Game in Ann Arbor. This is also the time for the sororities and fraternities to start recruitment, which has allowed the freshmen to take part and become an active part of the UM-Dearborn community.
“The best part of the Homecoming Week is the free food, which is definitely a plus. I mean who doesn’t like free food,” said junior Haseeb Jameel. “I also think it is definitely important that as a smaller school, we are coming together to enjoy these activities as a whole.”
“Honestly, I’ve been stuck in the library the entire time and had no idea it was Homecoming Week, but I think it would be really cool to have been able to be a part of it,” said sophomore Aaron Zhang. “It would also be really cool if we had a bounce house.”
“I actually didn’t know we had a Homecoming Week, which is actually pretty cool, and I noticed certain things taking place, I just didn’t know what they were for, but now I know for next year,” said freshman Georgie Javarinis.
“I think my favorite part about it would be the fact that we get to start recruiting girls,” said senior Meghan Walling, a Phi Mu member. “I love seeing new girls coming out to our recruitment events and seeing them so excited to possibly join one of the awesome sororities on campus. Plus, I like to hang out with all my sisters and we all love telling the potential new members all the great things each chapter does during the year.”
