 Washburn unleashed a week to remember during Homecoming from Oct. 13-18. The Homecoming Ball on Oct. 13 kicked off the week, which included a Late Night Breakfast after the ball and the Ichabod Race the following day.

Other notable events during the week were Scorch on the Porch and Open Mic Night on Oct. 15, WU Chef and Yell Like Hell on Oct. 16 and the parade on Oct. 18.

The Washburn Alumni Association hosted After Hours on Oct. 17, as well as a tailgate party before the Ichabods’ game against Missouri Western State University at Yager Stadium.

After Hours was sponsored by the Student Recreation and Wellness Center, which also celebrated its 10-year anniversary with an open house on Oct. 17.

During halftime of Washburn’s game, Alex Crume and Carly Willis were crowned king and queen of Homecoming.

Crume, a senior from Topeka, is the president of Sigma Phi Epsilon and special events director for the Washburn Student Government Association. He is pursuing a degree in math education and plans to become a math teacher and coach.

Willis, a senior from Newton, Kansas, is a member of Zeta Tau Alpha and the president of Order of Omega. She is pursuing a degree in mass media and plans to work on a master’s degree and work for a TV news station or public relations agency.
