On Wednesday, April 16, 2014, the USC Homecoming Commission revealed its 2014 theme on Greene Street with food and giveaways.
The circus-themed homecoming, dubbed ‘The Cockiest Show On Earth’, will feature events that have been hosted in the past, such as the annual parade and showcase, as well as several new events.
New events will include a chicken finger-eating contest that will be hosted on Wednesday, as well as a residence hall decorating contest and a field day. In past years, Homecoming has included a Greek life division and a student organization division. The 2014 Homecoming will add a residence hall division in hopes that an increased amount of students, especially those not involved in student organizations or Greek life, will participate in the Homecoming events.
Director of Student Organizations Outreach Sam Shea said, “I am especially excited for the field day. This will be a great opportunity for getting everyone at USC involved- not just students who typically show up to Homecoming events. We are definitely expecting a greater turnout this year.”
The 2014 USC Homecoming will take place October 11-18. For more information, go to http://www.sa.sc.edu/homecoming/
