Homecoming was a great experience this year, and personally, was the best Homecoming I’ve been to so far.
To start, the weather this year was gorgeous. Last year, Homecoming was fun, but it was dampened a bit by the cold weather that caused everyone to be huddled and bundled up throughout the weekend.
Personally, I love the heat, so having a weekend with hot weather was just perfect.
The bonfire on Friday night was a great time for the entire school to come together, hang out, and cheer on not only our football team, but all the other sports teams competing that weekend.
My favorite part of the bonfire was the deconstructed s’mores that they served, they were absolutely delicious.
The icing on the cake for the weekend was that we won the Homecoming game!
I really only pay attention to football on two days, Homecoming and Super Bowl Sunday.
So being able to watch Mercyhurst win and play a good game that had me on the edge of my seat during the last few minutes was a great experience.
And, most importantly, the weekend was a great opportunity for me to see some old friends who have graduated and came back for the weekend.
It’s a great way to stay in touch with friends even when you move far away, and it really does cement the fact that Hurst is Home.
