Should wcta change their homecoming theme?

WCTA is finally getting ready for its annual Homecoming (HOCO), on October 16th, with the theme of the classic 70's movie, Grease. Due to virtual learning last school year and the spread of Covid-19, HoCo was unable to happen, causing the Freshman at the time (now Sophomores) to miss out on that experience.

With tickets starting to sell, the preparations almost seem to be complete, but only a few students have viewed the film, which ultimately begs the question: Should WCTA change their current HOCO theme?

There’s no doubt that Grease is an all-time favorite. However, with the large population of students who have not actually viewed the film, dressing accordingly may prove to be difficult.

“I wasn’t even aware that it was a film. Even so, I don’t plan on trying to follow the theme. I honestly thought it was short for greaser,” said Sophomore Mosses Feris.

“Our current theme is basic,” said Sophomore Michelle Surunna.

Due to a lack of interest or knowledge about Grease, it is quite likely that there will be very few who will dress accordingly with the theme.

WCTA students did not have much say in choosing the theme of the event as well.

Despite there being a poll deciding on the WCTA STUCO Instagram, the poll was not promoted enough towards students, with many remaining unaware of the selections. Students did not directly receive a poll that was sent to their school email, which gave them limited availability to choose the desired theme.

“I would suggest maybe a medical theme, since it would be kind of relevant to our current situation, considering we are in a pandemic,” said Sophomore Mosses Feris.

With HoCo approaching in only a couple of weeks, it’s quite unlikely that the overall theme would be changed. However, it is quite apparent that a wider vote should be taken from the students of WCTA to decide a theme.

Tickets are selling out fast and their prices increase as the day to HOCO gets closer. Even if you’re not a fan of the current theme, don’t wait before it is too late, buy your tickets to WCTA’s HOCO soon!
