Students encouraged to show Falcon pride
October 7, 2011
It is homecoming weekend here at UW-River Falls, and this year’s theme is “Falcon Pride.” With many events going on around campus, students should be sure to get out there and participate. But Falcon pride shouldn’t stop at homecoming. We here at the Student Voice encourage students to take an active interest in the River Falls campus and community.
With that said, students should take into account how they’re representing themselves as well as UWRF. Unfortunately, homecoming is known to many students not as a time to celebrate Falcon pride, but as a binge-drinking holiday.
Homecoming is a weekend where many minors are given out to students, which refl ects very poorly on the River Falls campus. As we said last week, if you have a misdemeanor on your record, it is likely to stay with your for the rest of your life.
So get out there and be proud of your University! Go to the homecoming parade, play bingo, participate in the bean bag tournament, and cheer for your fellow Falcons at various sporting events. Go Falcons!
