Wednesday, Nov. 4, will be the home opener basketball game. The Lady Roughriders will kick off the season by playing against Allen County Community College at 6 p.m. Homecoming king and queen candidates will be revealed at the dance following the game.

Thursday, Nov. 5, Haunted Homecoming will be held in the Wright conference room. The dance will begin at 8 p.m. and end at midnight.

“This year we decided to hold homecoming in the fall because in the spring time we often have trouble with bad weather.” Mark Aubuchon, director of campus life, said “If we were going to do it in the fall, then it would perfectly coincide with Halloween so we could combine the two. That’s how we got Haunted Homecoming.”

Costumes are encouraged the night of the Haunted Homecoming dance. A costume contest will be held, and the best costumes will receive a prize. This event takes place after Halloween and allows students to buy costumes at a lower cost, according to Mark Aubuchon.

Free food, drinks, and a DJ will be provided as well. All Crowder students are invited to attend the free homecoming dance.

“I think it’s a great idea,” said Lazaro Albarran, a business administration major, about the Halloween themed homecoming. “It gives people the opportunity to be creative and have fun with the dance!”
