    Unless you're a Greek, is homecoming any different than any other home football weekend for students? It wasn't in my day. Drink a little pre-game, go to game, drink a lot post-game. Nothing special about it.

    As an adult, I'll get back to games when my schedule allows. Doesn't matter if its homecoming or not. Do people really still specifically pick that weekend to go to a game above others as if it's special in some way? Can't relate.

    Yeah, as a student there is really no difference between any other weekend. My upstairs neighbors are drinking all week which is annoying at 8pm-2 am on a Sunday and Monday. Damn sophomores....

    Did you forget the jimlad?

    Haha, honestly there were certain weeks while I was in college when I'd consume a lot of booze (didn't matter if I was a freshman or senior). Homecoming week was definitely enough of a reason. College is supposed to be fun!

    Not when you have 2 tests. One of which you need to pass and if you get lower than a C- in the same class you don't graduate. I understand having a good time later on in the week and that's cool. **** I'll even be out for mug night and maybe Wednesday. However, Sunday is a little much. I'm sure if you ask 95% of the student population they would say there is no difference between homecoming and a regular week.

    Well 10-15% of ISU is Greek so thats incorrect. Plus all the on-campus stuff and a much larger number alumni coming back.

    Thanks for correcting me on that. Next time someone asks me what the percentage of greek students at ISU I'll tell them the truth. Until then I'll continue not giving a ****.
