See, it should be more about the Alumni, not greeks...
I guess it's just a different mentality in the south...
It is! Go look at the link earlier in this thread. Homecoming is a student run organization but it clearly falls under the Alumni Association (which is why the HC page is on the AA part of the website). I would bet the faculty advisor is someone from the AA. Nothing that is planned is planned exclusively for the greek system. Many in the greek system choose to participate (which is great). Many not in the greek system choose not to participate (which is their choice but they should not be complaining that this is a "greek event").
The difference in the south is not about HC...it is about the reverence for FB in general. FB is truly a religion in the south.
I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.
I know my tailgate will be triple the size because it's homecoming. We treat homecoming as it's supposed to be treated. Alumni getting back together. Since I live in Ames, I'll have a house full of college friends as well as others of our group that still live in the area. Homecoming is great! It's not even about the football game anymore, although I have season tickets and will be yelling for a win. It's about getting together with friends that you haven't seen in a while. I look forward to homecoming every year.
I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.
