Homecoming 2013

Homecoming is a celebration of the accomplishments of Shepherd University students and alumni and the community we share. Homecoming 2013 will celebrate Shepherd with our own Hollywood Walk of Fame theme. All students are encouraged to assemble teams to compete for the coveted Spirit Stick and cash prizes!

Each team will select a celebrity who has been awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame to be the focus of your skit, banner, and parade float. Remember that Shepherd must also be incorporated into the storyline of your skits, float, and banner so be mindful of this as you consider your options. You will want to choose a star who is well-known so that the audience/judges/community understand your reference point. The complete list of eligible Stars is available at

If you want to compete as a team, gather your friends. Attend the weekly Homecoming meetings (Tuesdays @ 4:30 in the Storer Ballroom of the Student Center). Submit a team roster. Get ready to show your school spirit!

Teams may be made up of ANY group of currently enrolled Shepherd University students. All students participating in the team competition MUST be included on the team’s roster.

Any questions should be directed to Rachael Meads at or Becky Boyer at
