UT Dallas students showed off plenty of Comet spirit and celebrated the University’s 50th anniversary during 2019 Homecoming activities Nov. 13-16.
Andrew Blodgett, a business administration senior, and April Boyd, a political science senior, were selected as Homecoming King and Queen for the 26th annual event.
A new chalk art contest encouraged students to draw what they think UT Dallas will look like 50 years from now. Winning entries were Kelsi Tresco for best use of color; Nivesh Jain for most creative-individual; Nishaat Rupani and Lillian Jones for most spirited; Lauren Eskridge and Jacob Czaia for judges choice-individual; Eco UTD for most creative-student organization; and Art UTD for judges’ choice-student organization.
The Homecoming Parade along Rutford Avenue featured custom-designed golf carts, cars, trucks and live music.
Homecoming 2019 also featured a Comet-themed fashion show, nighttime 5K run, talent show, film screening, cardboard boat regatta and lots of music, games, food and giveaways.
