This is a big week for Eastern as we celebrate homecoming with all the school spirit we can possibly have.

What we at The Daily Eastern News want to stress to the rest of the students and faculty is that it is highly important to get involved with homecoming festivities.

Of course, the big homecoming game will take place on Saturday afternoon, and there are some people who do not enjoy sports or games, but there are many other activities you can take part in this week to celebrate Eastern.

On Wednesday, there will be a Blue-B-Que Luncheon held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the McAfee Gym. Why not stop by during your lunch time and grab something to eat?

There will also be a Glow Bowling Mixer that evening from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Martin Luther King Jr. University Union Bowling area.

Bowling could be a fun way to spend time with your friends and celebrate school spirit.

Thursday will be the coronation and pep rally held from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the McAfee Gym. This is a strong way to get into the school spirit by coming and cheering on Eastern with your other classmates and friends.

The excitement from all of this will definitely put you in a great mood.

Friday is a great way to have fun by stopping by the Selfie Friday Contest and the Comedy Showcase held from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Grand Ballroom of the Union. Have some fun with friends by taking selfies together.

Saturday happens to be the biggest day of the week, with activities packed from early in the morning until that evening.

The Rotary pancake breakfast will be held Saturday from 6:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. in Dirty’s parking lot. If you are awake at that time, here’s your chance to come grab something good for breakfast.

At 9 a.m., there will be a 2.5k race/walk on Sixth and Seventh Streets.

The homecoming parade will start from Seventh Street to Division Street at 9:30 a.m., tailgate at 11:30 a.m. at O’Brien Field and the big game at 2 p.m. with Eastern playing against Eastern Kentucky.

Whatever you like to do for fun, we are sure there is something that will strike your fancy.

Take advantage of the fact that you are a panther and a member of this university.

We at The Daily Eastern News fully believe that homecoming week is a vital part of the spirit of being a panther, and that everyone should take part in the festivities that occur throughout the week.

If you are new this year, whether you are a freshman or a transfer student, we promise you will really enjoy this experience.

Celebrate the fact that you are a panther and come and enjoy all the activities.

And if you don’t usually celebrate with students at events, just try it this time. You might absolutely love it.

Have a happy homecoming week.
