Homecoming 2013 Floatbuilding Meetings: All Recognized Student Organizations Welcome

Posted on 3/27/2013 3:55:29 PM

Recognized student organizations interested in participating in the building of floats for the 2013 IUP Homecoming Parade are encouraged to send a representative to the floatbuilders meetings that will begin on Thursday, April 4, at 5:00 p.m. in the HUB Conemaugh Room.

Each fall, thousands of IUP alumni, local community members, and IUP community members gather to watch one of the largest parades in the area, the IUP Homecoming Parade! Among the over 100 units in that parade are a series of pomped floats, each one 50 feet long by 8 feet wide by 7 feet high! Construction of these amazing floats takes several weeks and involves multiple recognized student organizations. In the past, organizations from IUP Greek Life in addition to PRIDE Alliance, Mosaic, Gamma Sigma Sigma, and Delta Tau Sigma have contributed to float construction. Participation is open to any recognized student organization.
