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.
