Letter from the editor: Let us take you to homecoming

The Hill’s annual holiday of football, friends and a few too many beers is creeping up on a crisp November weekend this year. Nostalgia will be alive on campus as everyone rings in Homecoming, and we want to be a part of it — more of  a part of it, I should say.

Every Homecoming, we put out our annual section filled with features on which students found love, who’s playing the big concert and where everybody’s tailgating. This year, however, we wanted to go a little deeper and explore this campus tradition a bit more.

On Nov. 6, we’ll be presenting you with our first Homecoming magazine. It’ll have our usual tailgating map and concert info, but it’s going to be so much more. It’ll be a glossy look into our Hill’s history, ranging from how fashion has evolved to how our football team has evolved. But I don’t want to give away too much.  

 We’re used to our 48-hour turnarounds fueled with coffee and too much sugar. This magazine is like nothing we’ve ever done. And we’re excited.

What we’re most excited about, though, is how you can help. Not only do we want our stories and photos in these pages, we want yours too, alumni. You who walked this Hill and came away with a lifetime of memories.

Share your stories about late nights in the library, or that time your bike was stolen after a party. We want to hear about that really awkward blind date your friends sent you on, or the one that — surprisingly — worked. We want your memories in our pages and our online component. 

Find your call to writing in our glossy pages. Reminisce a little early about your past tailgating adventures, or that time you and your friends sled down Hospital Hill on a snow day.

Share in the pain of students currently pulling all nighters in the library with stories of yours. We want to combine our hard work with yours. 

Submit your stories, between 100 and 500 words, and/or a few photos to [email protected] The deadline is Oct. 7. We want YOU!
