Indian Hills hosts 8th annual Homecoming week

Indian Hills Community College's eighth annual Homecoming week runs from September 30-October 5.

The campus will be packed with activities this week, including the crowning of Homecoming king and queen Wednesday at noon, followed by a 5K Glow Run that begins at 7:15. The run/walk is free for students and $25 for community members, with al the proceeds used for student scholarships.

Homecoming week is not just about engaging students, but reconnecting with alumni and the community.

"We advertise it in our alumni and friends newsletter to our alumni," said Bianca Myers, Alumni Coordinator at Indian Hills. "We also send out a postcard inviting all our alumni to events, we do a couple press releases and news releases to the community and then we have some student activities and some student information that goes out as well."

Homecoming week caps off with the king and queen participating in the Oktoberfest parade Saturday morning, followed by a car show, children's craft fair and pinewood derby all on the Ottumwa campus.
