- Don’t say yes out of pity. Spare the other person the embarrassment and yourself the uncomfortable feeling and just say no thanks.
- Don’t spend a ridiculous amount of money on the night. We’re all college students trying to pay off loans. There’s no need to impress anyone.
- Don’t ask a guy or girl that you just met the week of homecoming. Don’t get me wrong I’m all for spontaneity, but do you really want homecoming to be your make it or break it? (too soon, my friend, too soon)
- Don’t sit in the corner and not dance. You are in college! The Church Of Nazarene is finally letting us dance! What a time to be alive! Take advantage of it! (Bust a move!)
- Don’t let the stress ruin the fun. Don’t forget why you spent all that time on your hair, or all those hours shopping for that one dress that caught your eye the first moment you walked into the store, but still spent three hours, trying on twelve more dresses, to only settle on the first one you saw. Have a fun night; your 15+ hours in the library studying agrees with me.
- The guy has to ask the girl! I’m a firm believer of chivalry, AND WHEN YOU ASK HER OUT, GO BIG or- well just go big. You never know it might get you out of the friend zone. (Too far?)
- Ladies! I got this one from a lady, so hold your fire. Apparently, ladies don’t have the best track record when it comes to dancing, so YouTube some dance lessons. It won’t hurt anyone; it might even save someone from getting smacked across the face (coordination is key.)
- Go to the Hoedown. For two reasons: 1. Ron Jackson and the ASG team host the best parties around. 2. If you don’t have a
date by Thursday then DON’T GO! No, I’m kidding you should still go, because you might meet a last minute date who might turn out to be your special someone that you’ll live happily ever after with. (You’re welcome.)
- Guy’s compliment your date even if you’re just going as friends, if she doesn’t show it she’ll still be wondering if she did it right. Ladies fix your guy’s tie even if it’s already fixed, because we love it when you do.
- Plan out your night, but don’t over-plan so much that you miss out on the great moments. Homecoming is more than just a dance, or an opportunity to find your Mr. or Mrs. Ring by spring. Homecoming is a moment of freedom, freedom to make memories that you will forever remember.
