Here’s an update on Homecoming 2009. I had a chance to sit down with homecoming chair, Caitlyn Menconi to get more information about the event. Menconi is excited about the event however, like the first interview, it's hard to get her to divulge information she wants to keep a surprise. She did give some very essential and vital information about ticket sales.
Tickets go on sale February 16 in both the Lincoln Park and Loop Campuses for $15. Not only does your ticket promise a great time in a great location, but it also provides you with a catered dinner buffet (I took a peek at the menu off her PC and its definitely not stuff you’d get at the cafeteria). There will also be dessert, dancing until midnight, and a free trolley transportation to and from Union Station. As a reminder, this year’s Homecoming falls on February 28, the theme is ‘All aboard the Demon Express,’ and the location is Chicago’s Union Station.
If you are interested then keep your eyes open for the promo tables on both campuses next week. Tickets will be on sale Monday through Friday from 10am to 5pm. In Lincoln Park, the tables will be in the Student Center on the first floor by either of the doors leading into the building (basically check the tables located by both doors). And in the Loop, the promo table will be found on the eleventh floor gallery. Stay tuned for more updates.
