'Jacket Racket: A Superior Homecoming!
Save the Date: November 15-18, 2017
Join us as we celebrate Yellowjacket Pride all weekend long! The 5th annual 'Jacket Racket is bringing along some fun changes initiated by the student planning committee. This year we will be kicking off the festivities with a pep rally where we will have free BBQ, and more!
What's better than free food? Free prizes, of course!
'Jacket Racket prizes will be given out each day of homecoming. To be entered, all you have to do is swipe your student I.D. when you arrive at the event and Student Involvement will randomly select a winner(s)!
Volunteers are needed to assist on the student planning committee or to help out with events during the weekend! If you are interested, please contact us!
