Meet SNU’s 2023 Homecoming Court
Homecoming is here! We are so excited about the fun and fellowship this week has already brought and will inevitably bring. Each year, Homecoming is a time when current students and alumni can come together and connect on campus through various fun and exciting activities. It is also a great time of celebration. Students nominate and celebrate their peers while the SNU community comes together to celebrate the goodness of the university! Some of these celebrations included class reunions, sporting events, and even a musical.
We hope that this week serves as a reminder of fond memories and provides an opportunity to create new ones as well. We are honored to introduce our Homecoming Court below. Each of these students has been chosen by their peers as a representative who foster community and live out SNU’s core values in their own lives. The voting results are now in, and we are pleased to announce that this year’s homecoming king and queen are …
