Hey Minnesota! After getting to know the Programs Coordinator and Marketing Coordinator last week, it's time to introduce the other two coordinators who will be making Homecoming 2012 possible!
Outreach Coordinator Matt Ramirez is a double major in Chemistry and Art History. This is in his second year here at the U of M. Matt's Homecoming responsibilities will include tackling the Gopher Fest, the Food Drive, the Blood Drive, the 5k, and the Thank-U events. Throughout Homecoming, Matt is looking forward to engaging with students and the greater university, as well as the greater Minneapolis/St. Paul community as a whole. His top three favorite things (in no particular order) are hippos, guacamole, and bubbles.
Event Logistics Coordinator Blaire Hoven is in her third year at the U of M. She has a double major in Public Relations and Dance. A fun fact about her is that she had the opportunity to visit New Zealand and hike the Franz Joseph Glacier last summer. This year Blaire will be taking the lead on the Homecoming Parade and Competitions, and she can't wait to see how the parade comes together!
"It is a long process with many details and I can't wait to see the outcome of everyone's hard work. I am also looking forward to the Pepfest/concert. Both are always a fun time and it is cool to see students, staff, alumni, and U of M supporters come together to celebrate Homecoming," she said.
