Inside or On The Field: Homecoming 2023

Inside+or+On+The+Field%3A+Homecoming+2023

This year, West will be holding homecoming in the main gym. In years prior, homecoming was held on the football field to the delight of many. With homecoming being held inside this year, many students have complaints, so in what ways could the change in scenery affect this year’s homecoming?

 

There are many students who would rather have homecoming outside. For one, having homecoming on the football field means students aren’t as overwhelmed by the substantial number of people in the event; students cannot just stand in one spot. Students were also able to enjoy watching fireworks to end the night. 

 

Some students, however, believe homecoming is better inside. One of the arguments many have against homecoming outside is the weather. Students and Staff never know what the weather will end up being on the day of the dance. It could rain, snow, or the temperature could drop out of nowhere. Another common gripe students have is that people can wear dress shoes comfortably inside. Students won’t have to worry about their dress shoes getting ruined from turf, especially heels. Many find it easier to walk inside with this type of footwear because of the flooring.

 

Taylor Blackburn, the Co-president of Student Government, shared her perspective on where homecoming should be held.

 

“I kind of preferred outside because I felt like you had more room to spread out and if you were overstimulated with the mosh pit kind of dancing circle, you had room to space out and get away.”

 

Lily Haun, a sophomore at Lakota West High School, expressed her thoughts on the debate.

 

“I prefer it inside because you don’t have to worry about things like the weather. Some good things about homecoming being inside are comfortably being able to wear dress shoes and not worrying about the weather. One of the cons of homecoming inside is the temperature. Being closed in with people dancing will make it hot, and probably smelly.”

 

Regardless of whether homecoming is held inside or outside, students will likely walk out with amazing memories to look back on for years to come.
