Greek Life competes for best fairy tale set at homecoming
By Maggie Ortuso
The Kean campus was abuzz with activities like a mechanical bull, shrek characters and more for Homecoming earlier this month. Kean students and alumni came together for the event, which took place on Oct. 1. The theme for this year was Once Upon a Time.
Green Lane Academic Building was transformed with decorations from fairytale movies, like Shrek and Peter Pan.
Sororities and Fraternities built pieces including a throne, a bridge and a boat,.
Kean’s Greek life competed for the best set at Homecoming. Theta Phi Alpha and Sigma Beta Tau’s Shrek theme won,their organizations received a $100 prize.
“Shrek was a very creative idea,” said Freshman Gaby Esteves. “It incorporates the medieval theme, but my favorite was the shrek cupcakes with ogre ears.”
The highlight for many people was the mechanical bull in the lot. For those brave enough to tackle it, the bull swung the rider until they fell off.
There was also a carnival set up in the main campus parking lot. Participants could win prizes by playing games such as popping balloons and squirting water guns.
After seeing the decorations and going to the carnival, students and alumni went to the football game.
Kean students and alumni watched the game and cheered the team on. Kean lost to Frostburg State University 25-18.
