Marquette Student Government will contribute $35,000 toward the homecoming events returning to campus in the fall.

After hearing requests to bring back homecoming, the university decided to revive the tradition. Last fall, the Office of University President Michael Lovell requested a partnership with them for this initiative. 

“It’s definitely been clear students have been (wanting) it for a while,” said MUSG program vice president and junior in the College of Communication Charlotte Hingley.

There will be daily events and MUSG will sponsor three of them – the student showcase, craftness and glow bingo. These events were chosen because they are popular Marquette Late Night events.

The Late Night events will receive $15,000 of funding.

“It’s our contribution to an event we know is going to grow in years to come,” Hingley said.

Cameron Vrana, MUSG financial vice president and a junior in the College of Business Administration, also agreed the number is fair.

Homecoming is not only an event for students but alumni, families and the Milwaukee community as well. However, Sarah Beattie, former program vice president and senior in the College of Communication, said MUSG will work as student representatives in the planning process.

“We will be the student voice in a room full of adults,” Beattie said. “Not all the programs may be specifically aimed at students, we are a large part of that audience and need to be thought of during planning.”

Beattie and Hingley said they are excited about homecoming because it provides the opportunity to bring a large concert to campus. The performer has not been announced yet.

The festivities will take place the first week in October leading up to Marquette Madness. Although homecoming is traditionally centered on football, Beattie and Hingley said they look forward to celebrating in a way that is unique to Marquette.

“The point of a football game is to promote school spirit,” Hingley said.  “But we’ll be offering school spirit in a traditional Marquette way.”
