“Homecoming is awesome,” Jovic said. “Everybody should come to it.”

One great aspect of the dance is it gives students a chance to show off their best semi-formal attire.

“I love being dressed up,” said sophomore Aleksina Jovic. “I like how everyone is looking great.”

Along with York students, the fieldhouse was dressed to the nines with decorations that fit accordingly with the theme of, “Red, White, and Duke.” The fieldhouse was adorned with banners of American flags, red, white, and blue lanterns, and even a small inflatable of Uncle Sam.

“It took a lot of effort to put all the decorations out there for Homecoming but we really put in a lot of effort and I really appreciate all the decorations,” said sophomore Emma Lutz, member of Student Council. “They look great, they’re fantastic, and they really represent America.”

The music played was mainly of the rap and pop genre that was enjoyed by some, but also disliked by some. Some featured artists were, Bruno Mars, Chance the Rapper, and Miley Cyrus.

“I was not really a fan of the music at homecoming,” said sophomore Abagael Moriarty. “There weren’t a lot of songs that I knew. I would say that the songs were fun, but I didn’t know any of the lyrics. They didn’t play any Coldplay, so I was kind of disappointed.”

On the other hand, sophomore Cathryn Hanson thought the music selection was very appropriate for the setting of homecoming.  

“I really like 21 Savage. He’s probably one of my favorite people ever. ‘Bank Account’ got me really hyped up. It was pretty lit. Most of the songs were pretty good.”

Overall, Homecoming united students in a much-needed celebration in the fieldhouse that was full of Duke pride. 

“Homecoming was so much fun,” said Hanson. “I wish I could go back. I really hope it’s like this next year.”
