Homecoming 2010 Welcomes Over 3,400 Titan Fans
Alumni and students were greeted by the scent of In-N-Out cheeseburgers as they arrived for the 3rd Annual CSUF Homecoming. Theevent has become an annual tradition that brings together the entire Titan community for a day of entertainment and school spirit.
This year was the largest Homecoming yet, with over 350 guests pre-registered with the Alumni Association. It only took minutes after check-in begun for the entire area in front of Titan Gym to be colored in an “Orange Curtain” of Homecoming shirts.
An additional 200 students lined up early to receive a free meal and t-shirt sponsored by Associated Students Inc. "It was definitely worth the long wait," CSUF senior Marques Cunningham said. “Having In-N-Out at Homecoming was a great idea.” Students who were not part of the first 200 to receive a free t-shirt enjoyed other free goodies from sponsors Geico Insurance and Rockstar energy drinks.
Over 40 volunteers worked together to make Homecoming a fun-filled day for the Titan family. The long list of entertainment included live music from the Titan Varsity Band, spirit performances from the Cheer Squad, face-painting provided by Titan Tusk Force, a caricaturist, an elephant balloon artist and even a photo-booth complete with Titan props. Games like skee-ball, basketball toss and plinko also kept the crowd busy, while appearances by Tuffy the Titan and the Geico Gecko added to the wave of school spirit.
Homecoming 2010 would not have been complete without the exhilarating, last-minute win by the men's basketball team over UC Irvine, 74-68. With over 3,400 Titan fans present at Homecoming 2010, it was undoubtedly a victorious day all around for the Titan community.
Homecoming '09 is co-sponsored by GEICO, the Cal State Fullerton Department of Intercollegiate Athletics, Cal State Fullerton Alumni Association, Titan Athletics Club, TitanShops, Student Life and Associated Students Inc.
