The Homecoming football game is Saturday, Nov. 16 at 6 p.m. at Veterans Stadium with tailgating beginning at 3 p.m. The Vikings will play Desert. The queen, king and a royal court will be introduced during halftime. Booths to vote for queen and king will be available at the PCC Lawn on Tuesday, Nov. 12 and at the LAC Front Quad on Thursday, Nov. 14 from 10:30 a.m.-1 p.m. and 5-6.p.m.
Students with college service cards may vote online through LBCC’s website for their favorite queen or king from Tuesday, Nov. 12 through Thursday, Nov. 14 from 9 a.m. until 10 p.m. Information on each candidate will be posted on a sidebar under “meet the candidates.” Rallies to formally introduce the royal candidates are scheduled at the PCC on Tuesday, Nov. 12 at 11 a.m. and at the LAC on Thursday, Nov. 14 at 11 a.m.
Homecoming committee member Amanda Calder, 21, a criminal justice major, said, “The purpose of the rallies is to introduce the students running for queen and king to other students so they could see who they are voting for. It is also a good opportunity for students to win prizes and also build the school spirit that reflects diversity.”
Ra San Alban, 19, a music major and member of the International Order of Tong, is running for king. Alban said, “Our theme is Robin Hood and the Merry Men. Members of our club and I will pass out fliers and put up posters to prepare for the rallies.”
Another Homecoming organizer, Adriana Caspanon, 20, a business management major, said she is hoping students come out in large numbers to support the team and see the crowning of king and queen.
Sean Rundell, 25, a communications major, said, “I cannot really say I know anything about the Homecoming, I just come for my classes and leave and I don’t really follow the campus events.”
