Homecoming is right around the corner for Savannah State University and as the Campus Activities Board (CAB) began finalizing the week’s events, the Homecoming Fashion Show Competition was nowhere to be found.
Last year all four fashion and modeling organizations managed to pack Tiger Arena for the fashion showdown of the school year.
“It’s really crazy because last year a lot of people only bought tickets for the fashion show instead of paying the flat fee to go to all of the homecoming events”, said Senior Mass Communications major and member of Nubian Elite Council of Fashion member Chelsea Houston. The ‘Legendary’ themed runway competition was wildly popular among students as well as members of the local fashion community who came out to support the event.
Students pursuing careers in fashion and modeling are particularly upset about losing the opportunities to showcase their talents, and to network with alumni and fashion industry entrepreneurs.
Under new management, CAB took a different approach to this year’s list of homecoming events in efforts to try something different. However, traditional events such as the Residential Step Show, and the coronation of Miss Savannah State University are still in place.
Instead of the fashion show, CAB will present two new events: Roam ‘N the U, and Rapid Flames; a homecoming day party and field day activity.
As for fashion lovers, keep an out for possible individual fashion shows from all of your favorite fashion houses on campus. For more detailed information regarding Homecoming 2016 events, visit www.savannahstate.edu/homecoming
