Homecoming festivities kick off next week, and all faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to wear green and gold on Monday, Feb. 21, to show their school spirit.

The student organization spirit contest is once again included in this year’s homecoming events. Interested groups need to register with SOAP, Room 101 in SUB I, by 5 p.m. today. Groups earn spirit points during the week by participating in activities such as the banner contest, the karaoke/talent contest, and the Screamin’ Green contest. The winner of the spirit contest is announced at the Midnight Masquerade Ball on Saturday night.

Banners designed by the participating groups will hang throughout the week in the Johnson Center. The homecoming court leads the entertainment at Wednesday night’s bonfire as the first act in the karaoke/talent contest, and Saturday’s pre-game block party will come alive with screamers “Screamin’ Green.”

Make it a point this weekend to drive by the Fairfax Nursing Center at 10701 Main Street to check out the George Mason homecoming display on the front lawn. Go Patriots!
