The Office of Student Engagement plans many of the student events which happen during Homecoming Week each fall, including several that are favorite campus gtraditions! These include the Homecoming parade, presentation of the Homecoming court, Choctaw Cheer-Off and more!
The Choctaw Cheer-Off takes place each year on the caf patio during Homecoming week. The clubs and tribes perform cheers showing off their MC spirit and competing for third, second and first place in the competition. This event is very popular for MC students to attend. Hundreds of students gather to watch while enjoying dinner outdoors!
Follies Viewing Party
The Follies Viewing Party, held on Friday night after the final performance of Follies is always a student favorite. Follies performers are able to finally sit back and enjoy watching the other Follies skits!
Groups participating in the Homecoming Parade stay up on Friday night to build their Homecoming Parade floats. This is always a fun time for students to bond as they work hard to put together a parade-worthy float for the next day!
The Homecoming Parade is a student and alumni favorite. Campus organizations, groups and departments are able to participate in the annual parade which passes down College Street on the afternoon of Homecoming Saturday. The parade also features members of the Homecoming Court as well as winners of MC's annual alumni awards. Students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents and members of the Clinton community show up to enjoy the parade each year.
Homecoming Court Presentation
The Homecoming Court is presented during halftime of the Homecoming football game. Homecoming maids and the Homecoming Queen are elected by the student body and formally presented during the halftime presentation. Students and fans cheer on the queen as she rules over Homecoming each year!
