C.W. Post students were able to express their Post pride with a Pep Rally on Friday, October 21st, at 7 p.m. in the gym of the Pratt Recreation Center. Sponsored by The Association for Campus Planning (ACP), the Pep Rally had a number of events for students to enjoy.
The night included the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners of the talent show giving an encore of their winning performances. Homecoming banners were proudly displayed, clubs were acknowledged, and the Student Dance Association and Pioneerettes dazzled the crowd with their own performances. And, last but not least, students showed their Post pride to the football team before the big homecoming game. What’s not to love about pep rally?
In addition to the performances, there were also free food and drinks offered to the crowd, along with some green and gold pompoms and foam fingers to cheer with. And, ACP didn’t stop there. It also threw free C.W. Post t-shirts into the crowd and had a D.J. blasting music throughout the event to keep the students pumped up.
Sally-Ann Gaughan, a junior early childhood education major, was surprised by this year’s pep rally. “It was better than I thought it would be. It had more school spirit. It was just awesome.”
Anna Smith, a freshman with an undeclared major, also enjoyed pep rally, saying, “I liked it and thought it was really good. The music was also really good, too.”
This year’s Pep Rally did just what it set out to do: get students pumped up for the big Homecoming game, and allow them to let loose and have some fun.
