Homecoming event invites students to stuff a pig

October 16, 2019

As part of the week of homecoming festivities, a “build-a-bear” style event will take place on Saturday, Oct. 19 to create a custom homecoming stuffed animal. The event starts at 8 a.m. in the Involvement Center and is open to students and community.

Student Involvement estimates 550 attendees. For this reason they emphasized the limit of one stuffed animal per person with a first come, first served basis.

Participants will receive one pig “skin,” a stuff kit, and a homecoming shirt for the pig. Fabric markers will be available for those who want to decorate the pig’s shirt.

This type of event has been done previously with a cow and a horse. It was so popular in previous years that Student Involvement has revived the event. “We’re excited to bring back a fun homecoming tradition,” Elise Koop, student events and activities coordinator said, “Come and remember homecoming 2019 by getting yourself your very own homecoming pig.”
