Do 'U' Have What it Takes to Paint the Town Gold?

Greetings Gophers!

Part two of our 'How to get Involved in Homecoming 2010' Guide focuses on University or 'U'-wide Teams. This year, we are making a -special push to get as many students as possible involved in our competitive events. So, if you've caught the bug and want to go against your fellow gopher fans, grab a few friends and click here to sign-up for U-Wide competitions.

You can sign up for free events such as the Campus-Wide Scavenger Hunt or Recreation Volleyball. Or, for as little as $10/person, you can sign up to compete as a team in Flag Football, Cheer, Lip Sync. There are several competitions for you to choose from so sign up for as many or as few as you would like! Just keep in mind that to compete for the coveted grand prize there are specific events you must be sure to take part in! All you need are your friends or group members - we'll supply the opportunity for fun and excitement.

So don't wait any longer, our time to Paint the Town Gold is just around the corner!

Until next time-

We are Looking for U!

Now that you've met our wonderful candidates, it's time to start thinking about how U are going to get involved this year. There are countless ways and we hope there is something that fits your fancy. Over the next few posts we want to give you a glimpse into the awesome opportunities we have in store for everyone this year!!

First off- thanks to the HUGE nature of this week long event, the committee needs all the extra help they can get. We are looking for students to join us as Ambassadors for the month leading up to and through the week of Homecoming. From handing out promotional items on campus to lending a hand at check-in for one of our signature events to helping backstage of the parade, it will be all hands on deck for this adventure. We are in search of about 150 of you, so convince a friend and email Sabrina Bolin at homecoming@umn.edu [Subject: Ambassador] to get your name on the list!

Oh, and I almost forgot, Ambassadors get a chance to see all of the sweet behind-the-scenes stuff before ANYONE else, and trust us there will be some pretty awesome perks along the way!

We hope your summer is amazing, and that we hear from you soon, don't wait until it's too late! As always, stay tuned for more important updates.

Until next time-
