WLU students prepare for homecoming festivities

Posted: Updated:

West Liberty's Campus is buzzing with activity for this week's homecoming at the school. 

The student government's goal was to get as many students involved as possible during homecoming week. They've held a variety of events each day this week.

7News found alumni enjoying a lunch on campus there have been pep rallies, a serenades competition, tailgating, and rehearsals.

The students are doing their part to give back to their community. Ahead of Saturday's parade, they are cleaning up the route from campus to the town.

"We're cleaning the whole town of West Liberty, just as a way of giving back," said programming director Kyle Cook. "We live in such a small area, and our campus is so small that we should be doing these things." 

"We'll pick up any kind of garbage, debris, trash on the street, we obviously want the parade route to very clean for tomorrow, because a lot of people do travel up the hill for these sort of activities," said student body president Leanne Yeater.

Throughout the week they've been donating money to West Liberty Kentucky and the Colleges against Cancer Foundation.
