We Will Be Victorious! From October 7th-13th our Aztecs celebrated Homecoming. This week long celebration commemorates all that means to be an Aztec, from cheering on our Aztec football team, to remembering fallen Aztecs who served, highlighting the achievements of past presidents of the university, and even recognizing current students that fully encompass what it means to be an Aztec. With every homecoming we nominate students to the Homecoming Court. These students represent what we as Aztecs strive to become: involved in the university, community, and a leader through and through.
The nomination process requires that each candidate submit a service project that they would plan and coordinate in the spring representing the university as the Homecoming King or Queen. The service project addresses a social or civic project that is of personal interest to the candidate and equally as important to the SDSU community.
The homecoming court this year included members from Associated Students, College Councils, Honor Societies, and various student organizations. Each of which had to go through an in-depth interview and selection process.
In the end it was Tom Rivera who was crowned Homecoming King. Tom was nominated by Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI) for his continued excellence in the organization and commitment to the university. Tom will put on a service project in the spring for a community organization that he finds especially important to him and the Aztec community.
As for the Queen, this honor went to Channelle McNutt. Channelle was nominated by the Afrikan Student Union for her contributions to the organization and the university as a whole. Like Tom, Channelle will put on a service project in the spring representing an area of the community that Aztecs should raise awareness for.
