Student Clubs and Greek Life bring a new Homecoming event: the Shopping Cart Parade

Doll house on wheels?
My name is Jessica Dyrdahl and I am the Leadership Coordinator for Student Clubs and Greek Life. I am really excited about Homecoming Week!

We're working on a NEW event for this year’s line-up. For the first time in the history of UAA, we are holding a Homecoming Shopping Cart Parade! It'll happen on  Thursday, Oct. 6 @ 2:15 p.m. throughout The Spine.

If your group or department wants to get in on the fun, sign up for a cart here. There are only 40 of them, and once they're spoken for....

Preview at Campus Kick-Off
At Kick-Off this year, we got a sneak preview of just what a Shopping Cart Parade might look like. Chaz Hart, all decked out in Green & Gold, strolled the Cuddy Quad with an unusual .... decorated shopping cart!

We will be decorating the carts the week of Oct. 3, and the top 10 carts will get to show off their designs at the Kendall Classic Hockey Game.

Deadline for registration is Friday, Sept. 30.  Please call the Student Clubs and Greek Life Office at (907) 786-1385 or e-mail for additional information.

Need inspiration? Check out this You Tube video of a shopping cart parade, and here's a couple of snapshots of what others have done to gussy up their shopping carts.

So go get your Green & Gold on, and figure out what your shopping cart will be!
