Super Homecoming!

What does Free Candy, Corn Hole, ESPN 3, and Apples all have in common?

Yep you guessed it! Slippery Rock’s Homecoming Weekend!

And what a weekend it was!

Starting off with the Pep Rally Friday where President Smith gave his last speech to the student body, it was very bittersweet and yummy thanks to the free dinner provided by AVI Food Services!

Saturday started off bright and early with walking in the PARADE with the Adapted Physical Activity Club and it was a blast throwing candy to all the SR youngsters along the street! Oh and the left over candy was at treat for me too!

Since it was a wind storm practically all day, I next journeyed to good-old Boozel for some breakfast food and some well deserved hot chocolate!

After getting warmed up I ran over to the huge Tailgate outside the stadium where my professors and their families from the Adapted Physical Activity were grilling more lunch.  I even got the chance to beat one of my profs in corn hole- how sweet is that!?!?

Then the game started and it was awesome… windy, yet awesome! I was very impressed with The Rock defense and how I can see why we are ranked the number one defense in D2 football this season… oh and did I mention that WE WON! Yep it was awesome so Slippery Rock is now ranked 22nd in the nation for D2 football and that just makes our Rock Pride show even more! and ESPN 3 was there broadcasting nation-wide so I was on national television which made my day even cooler! 🙂

To top off the night, 30 girls skipped over to my house off campus and we together made apple pies and pans of apple crisp while laughing and catching up on life, our semesters, and how God has been working in our lives! It was definitely a great way to end a very memorable day at The Rock!

All for now.. keep shining!
