Washburn University celebrates 150th anniversary at Homecoming Ball (edit)

On Monday, Oct. 19, students celebrated Washburn University’s 150th anniversary at the Homecoming Ball in the Memorial Union Washburn rooms.

Students dressed up and danced the night away with their fellow Ichabods. The night was filled with fun, music and food. Students also had their photo taken by Kornerbooth Photography studio.

Outside the Washburn rooms, a top hat fundraising competition took place. Student organizations were assigned a specific decade and designed hand-made themed hats to match the time period. Students could then cast their vote by donating change to the hat of their choice or pay $50 to buy the hat.

Halfway through the event, the 2015 Homecoming Court was announced. The queen candidates are seniors Alexa Bowen, Emily Zimmerman and Kaitlyn Truesdell, and juniors Madison Wiegers and Catherine Steuart.

The king candidates are seniors Forrest Evans, Daniel Minton, Slater Champlin and Parker Gallion, and junior Ryan Kelly.

Students who want to cast their vote for Homecoming king and queen must do so before Oct. 24. Voting can be done online at my.washburn.edu or in the Memorial Union from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Homecoming king and queen will be announced during halftime at the homecoming football game in Yager Stadium on Friday, Oct. 24.

  1. Good edit. A couple things I would change would be that homecoming doesn't have to be capitalized throughout your post.Also, in your fourth and fifth paragraphs, I would say "as well as juniors Madison Wiegers, Catherine Steuart and Ryan Kelly." Otherwise, good job !

  3. I think this is a great edit, too! You did a nice job at cleaning it up and like Bree said, getting straight to the point. I would add back Washburn A/B, because Washburn rooms could be anything. At least that is how I interpret it. Overall, great job!

  13. I think the headline may be too long. I do like that you added links so that people can learn more about the upcoming events! Also, I think you should add back in what time the football game starts since we have a lower student participation.
