This week, KSU Japanese Dance Club participated in Kansas State’s Homecoming Week. This is a time when the Greek Houses, residence Halls, and Students Organization come together in the spirit of the college through a myriad of fun events.
This year we participated in the 5k Run, Sidewalk Chalk, Spirit Banner, Paint the ‘Ville, Kid’s Carnival, and the Parade. The team came together this week in these events and excelled in all events we participated in. For Sidewalk Chalk, Historian Ching Her created and led the design of Wille the Wildcat riding Colorado University’s Buffalo “Ralphie” like a bronco. Sectrarty Greta Kliewver organizted the Spirit Banner and Kid’s Carnival. Paint the ‘Ville was organized by our Publicity Chair Jordan Mizell. Special tanks to all the captains who worked on the parade and dances for the Homecoming week.
The parade, being the highlight, started at the Manhattan Mall and ended in Aggieville. The dancers did a fabulous job and everyone was full of genki! We were a small group this year, but all the viewers were happy to see us once again.
Here is this year’s rankings:
Sidewalk Chalk: 1st Place
Spirit Banner: 1st Place
Paint the ‘Ville: 1st Place
Parade: 2nd Place
Overall: 2nd Place
