Southeastern Homecoming Week is here! Southeastern’s campus and businesses in downtown Hammond are decked out to celebrate this year’s Homecoming theme: “Roomie Under the Big Top!” Read on for all the info on this weekend’s activities and be sure to check us out on Facebook – we are giving away a LION UP prize pack with 4 tickets to this Saturday’s Homecoming Game and your own copy of Southeastern’s first children’s book “Let’s Lion Up with Roomie”!
Saturday, October 18, 2014 is the big game, and there are all sorts of fun activities planned. My little ones love going to SLU games, they have a blast tailgating and enjoying the kids section during the game. The bounce house is a big hit with my 5-year-old, and my younger one loves the popcorn. : )
Because it is Homecoming, there will be even more activities than a usual game, with so many fun things for kids. Here are some of the events planned by Southeastern: (Tailgating events are free)
- Hayrides tours of campus – starting at 12 noon in Friendship Circle
- The SLU Bookstore will be open from 11:00 am – 6:30 pm with Roomie the Lion visiting from 1:00 – 2:00 pm during a book signing of Southeastern’s first-ever children’s book, Let’s Lion Up with Roomie, written by Erin Moore Cowser
- Starting at 2:00 pm in Friendship Circle, families can enjoy zip lining, a photo booth, and tailgating with live entertainment, face painting, inflatables, train rides, crafts, and mingling with Roomie the Lion and Phil the Pig
