HoCo Survival Guide

  • First things first: for those who are new (especially freshmen), HoCo is slang for Homecoming.
  • There have also been lots of changes made this year to Homecoming traditions. For more details, check out Bleu Print’s article on the topic.
  • Girls, wearing knee length or above dresses is the most common for semi-formal dances, but long dresses are okay, too! Be yourself and make this your own Homecoming!
  • Strapless dresses are also okay, but I don’t recommend a jacket if you plan to dance!
  • Follow the normal school dress code, to make it all run a little smoother.
  • Guys, whatever you wear, be it a tuxedo or a button up shirt, is just fine! Just no jeans and t-shirts. Remember, semi-formal.
  • To be accepted into the dance, bring your school ID and $5. You can still go if you don’t have your ID, but it takes a little longer, and you’ll want to go straight in.
  • Guest forms are in the office, so if you plan on bringing a student from another school, remember to grab one.
