I go to Temple University and there is a new “Self Made Temple Made Philly Made” campaign. We students always say TU = Turn Up. So for two weeks leading up to homecoming weekend everyone was coming up with little phrases such as “Temple Made me an owlcholic” (our mascot is an owl) and “Temple Made me Turn up.” It is too easy to get carried away with all of the excitement during homecoming season so here are the dos and don’ts:
Do: Show school spirit. That’s what homecoming is all about so paint your face, wear your school colors, paint your car go all out because that’s what we do.
Don’t: Expect your professors to care. Some professors are awesome enough to take into consideration that you just want to have a good time but other don’t care and while still assign papers and exams. Don’t blow them off!
Do: Get drunk and have fun. “Its college” and “You only live once” are not just things that douche bags say to get you to stop being a big bore, its actually the truth. It will not kill you to take your nose out of the books for one weekend and have fun. This may be the last time in life that it is somewhat socially expectable (amongst your peers) to get wasted and be a moron so live it. At least do it for your kids they’ll want to hear about homecoming not physics exams.
Don’t: Go out with people you can’t depend on. Some people don’t realize they’ve drank too much until its too late and although it sucks to baby sit your friend a good friend always will. A bad friend will leave you and that’s dangerous so be careful!
