The NDSU homecoming show and court coronation will commence in less than a week, and this year’s theme is “Remember the Bison.”
Many acts and groups will be performing at the show. After auditions, some of the acts that will be performing are the NDSU pep band, Theta Chi and Kappa Delta, Alpha Gamma Delta, Bison Information Network, S&S and several more.
These acts will include singing, juggling, dancing and acting out skits to the theme. The show will also feature the coronation of this year’s homecoming king and queen.
This year, all the proceeds from the event will go to the Fargo Youth Commission, which is a Boys and Girls Club of the Red River Valley.
“This year’s homecoming show theme, ‘Remember the Bison,’ was chosen to celebrate our first Division I national championship and to warn our opponents we’re going for it again!” said Dane Swartz, member of the Blue Key National Honor Fraternity and one of the co-producers of the event.
Lauren Wilvers, another Blue Key member, is the other co-producer. Together, Wilvers and Swartz worked through the summer to produce a show that “not only allows students, faculty and alumni of NDSU to gather around a long-standing tradition, but it also allows our campus to help those who are in need,” Wilvers said.
“This is a tradition that is rich in NDSU’s history,” she said. “The homecoming show is meant to raise money for a good cause, get students to laugh and enjoy the end of homecoming week, along with getting everyone pumped for Saturday’s game-crushing day!”
The homecoming show will be at 7:30 p.m. Friday in Festival Concert Hall. Tickets are $5, but donations for the Fargo Youth Commission will be accepted as well.
