If Homecoming seems daunting or confusing, here are some words of advice from seniors Jewell Beesley, Kobe Fukushima, and Coryn Burghgraef who were all asked how they prepared for Homecoming.

Question: How do you prepare for Homecoming?

Beesley: We have a big group chat. We start [planning] about two months out.

Burghgraef: I coordinated with my friends, what they wanted to do, and what colors I wanted to wear.

Fukushima: I get a nice suit, get some friends, ask a girl and just go.

Question:What is the most common mistake people seem to make when it comes to how they prepare?

Beesley: Dinner reservations is a big one for me.

Burghgraef: Not giving [themselves] enough time to go find what they want to wear and then they get frustrated.

Fukushima: Most people just didn’t really go.

Question: When is the best time to ask someone to Homecoming?

Beesley: The best time to ask someone to homecoming is probably during Ask Week.

Burghgraef: Definitely two and a half to three weeks in advance so you make sure you have enough time to get your corsages or boutonnieres.

Fukushima: Probably like two or three weeks so they can plan for it.

Question: Do you like to do anything before Homecoming, and why if you do?

Beesley: I like to go out and eat with my friends because it’s just a fun time.

Burghgraef: Get ready with my friends.

Fukushima: Just hang out with friends.

Question: What would you say the best part of Homecoming is and why?

Beesley: The football game by far, because we come together as a family.

Burghgraef: Hanging out with the date that I had.

Fukushima: Seeing people out of class enjoying themselves.
