The Green and the Gold Hit the Halls

Homecoming is just around the corner. You can feel the excitement for the week as students really let their Bison Pride show.

The residence halls are no exception — the Residence Hall Association has tasked every hall with decorating their own plywood for the Homecoming float. The only rule is have fun and make it as awesome as possible.

The float is not the only thing students are working on to show their passion for the green and gold. Each hall is doing their own NDSU-related activities this week to represent their Bison spirit to not only other halls, but the entire community.

I asked a few freshmen what they loved about Homecoming week and why they have so much bison spirit.

“Everyone is open to new experiences and homecoming is a great way to meet new people who share the same passion for football and their college,” Emily Klusman said.

“I grew up with a family full of Bison alumni,” Taylor Hove said. “I was able to experience so many Bison games. Every game I attended with my family was always a lot of fun. I really got to experience how much people loved the sport and their college. I am so happy that I am able to be a part of the Bison community now. The best part about homecoming is the amount of bonding experience that a loved sport can bring to a campus.”

“Colleges have homecoming week because it shows the community that students love their sports team and their college. You get to see so many people wear yellow and green and it makes you want to wear yellow and green. It’s an indescribable feeling, this feeling of a community with so much passion and respected for their college and most importantly their football team,” Dylan Metz said.

“Everyone is so proud to be a Bison. They all want to represent North Dakota State University to their best of their ability,” Connor Schmitz said enthusiastically. “It feels like we are helping the football team without being in the field. Wearing the same colors as the team feels like we are part of the team and that’s truly an indescribable feeling.”

While every student had a different definition on their Bison pride, Homecoming offers a chance to come together to support the team and college.
