    Amanda's Bio:
    I grew up in the Twin Cities, but now live up in Ely, MN near the BWCA, where my family has been for the last 7 years. I have three brothers, who I adore, and I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, and rough housing with them whenever I can. My mom has been a daycare provider since I was born, which served as inspiration for me to pursue a degree in Elementary education. I also love to paint, draw, and DANCE! I have been dancing for twenty years and am a dance instructor in Superior, WI....I can't imagine a life without it!

Homecoming: The Week Ahead

Homecoming 2011.  You have heard about it, talked about it, and seen a million flyers advertising it.   What events are must-go?  What can you expect?  Here’s your guide.

  • On Friday, the festivities begin with the Scholastica pep rally in the Reif at 3:30.  If you remember your high school pep rallies, this one is a splitting image (except much bigger, of course!).  You will get a chance to see the football team and watch the royalty be crowned.
  • At 4:30, there is a chili feed in storm’s.  Ever been to any kind of feed before?  If not, go!  All you can eat chili is a no brainer.  So, get a ton of food for a good cause.
  • At 7:00, the talent show will begin in the mitchell.  Students really go all out for this event…from break dancing, to playing music, to even super eccentric tricks or magic.  The larger the crowd, the more exciting, so check it out.


  • Saturday, or “The Big Day,”  is when most of the magic happens.  At 11:00, the homecoming parade will snake around campus.  This is usually one of the only times that college students will actually buy you candy and throw it to you for free, so I would encourage you to take advantage.
  • At 11:30, tailgating starts in the mitchell parking lot.  Lots of food, karaoke singing, and beer for the 21+ crowd.  Great way to have fun and psych up the crowd for the game.
  • At 4:30, the football game is taking place at Grigg’s field at UMD.  If you need a ride to the game, busses will leave the school around 3:30 and shuttle you back after it’s over.  Biggest game of the season…don’t miss it!
  • At 9, the homecoming dance will begin in the Reif.  Enough said.  Sixteen Candles is the live performance act of the night.

Be safe, have fun, and go!
