EUC Auditorium was packed with over 450 students, faculty, and staff.

Wednesday - At noon, Stuff-a-Plush brought students out to create their own stuffed animal from choices such as dragons, teddy bears, or poodles. 200 students walked away with a one-of-a-kind creation to celebrate Homecoming. That evening was the CAB Comedy Show featuring Ron G., Andrew Fisher, and Jen Kober who performed to another sold out crowd for EUC Auditorium!
