Ragsdale lawn is decorated in SEU colors as the campus welcomes in the homecoming season with spirit week.

Spirit week was full of costumes, activities and SEU pride as the campus prepared for homecoming weekend. Spirit week gave the chance for students to participate in several themes, such as bringing anything but a backpack, character day, wearing pink for breast cancer awareness, selfie scavenger hunt, and blue and gold Friday. Throughout the week, there were plenty of activities and events to attend, which included pumpkin painting at Munday Library, “Pie a Hilltopper” and a haunted house. Students were able to enter a spirit week contest on Instagram and win raffle prizes from Student Involvement by participating in spirit week.

Board painting took place on Oct. 23 to kick off the start of spirit week and homecoming. Participants were able to paint a board and display it on campus sidewalks throughout the week. (Kaitlynn Devitt / Hilltop Views)

On Oct. 25, Nicole Chuecas found it easy to dress up as Little Red Riding Hood for character day, since it’s her Halloween costume this year. “I just think it’s really fun to participate in anything, and I just really want to be more involved on campus during my last year as a senior,” she said.

On Oct. 28, students and faculty posed for a Homecoming pride photo on the stairs of Main Building, representing SEU pride by wearing the school colors: blue and gold. “Wearing blue and gold is just a great way to show how much you love your school and how much you love your community,” senior Sierra Sweeny said. “I literally wear gold heels every single Friday just to celebrate my school pride, so if you ever see me, please say ‘hi’ and ‘go toppers.’” (Kaitlynn Devitt / Hilltop Views)
