Good Morning:

Homecoming Week officially begins Sunday at 7 p.m. with the annual Lighting Ceremony at McAlister Place. This kicks off a week of traditions, reunions, concerts, campus visits, a spirit competition and numerous other special events all leading up to the big game next Saturday against Army.

Some of Homecoming Week's many highlights include a huge pep rally and fireworks display on the LBC Quad Friday evening (Oct. 8) followed by a free concert by Trombone Shorty. There's also the Helluva Hullabaloo Auction & Party, a Town Hall meeting, the Wave '10 All Alumni Reunion Party, Family Weekend and...actually, there are too many things to mention. This short video Gibson and I made explains it all:
