Homecoming 2011: Widener Spirit is in the Air

September 14, 2011

From Pioneers to Pride, the Widener community is preparing to welcome the festivities of homecoming. From past traditions to revamping new ones, this year is bound to have spirit in the air.  In addition to the traditional broom drill and PMC reunions on campus, Widener students have created unique ways to demonstrate their school spirit.

Marking a new tradition, the freshman class of 2014 was the first to sing the Pride “Fight Song,” which is now the song sung after every football victory as well as during convocation for incoming students. Another tradition established in recent years is the homecoming cart parade. This parade allows students to express their creative side while displaying what their clubs and organizations mean to them.

This year’s homecoming is Sept. 30 and Oct. 1.   We hope to see you here.  For more information and a list of events, see the schedule here.
