I am Christy Hamilton, a member of Student Alumni Relations Team (St.a.r.t).  I am very excited about Homecoming week and all the fun that comes with it.   As I was starting to get overwhelmed with school work and event planning as I was staring at my planner yesterday, the idea of me being a senior hit me.  I thought to myself, this is my last and final Homecoming.  However, being on St.a.r.t and hearing the hype of Homecoming from an alumnae perspective refreshed my thoughts.  There is a lot more to Homecoming than the collegiate experience.  In addition, there is more to tailgating than drinking.  Sometimes as students, we miss the point of tailgating.   Tailgating in all its glory is about the atmosphere of several people of all ages getting together for a common interest and to have fun, eating amazing junk food, being apart of the crowd, and experiencing the history of Ball State University through the visiting alumni, and the overall personal experience.  Therefore, the Homecoming theme is fitting for years to come.  Homecoming no matter what year really is the “Best Week Ever!”
