Have you been invited to Furman’s Homecoming? To Clemson’s?
No? You know why not?
You’re not an alumnus from there, of course. Everybody knows that. Going to the Homecoming of a school you didn’t attend would be like going to your neighbor’s family reunion. That doesn’t make any sense. . . .
Indiana University, however, doesn’t know the definition of “Homecoming.”
Does Michael McRobbie not have a dictionary? People who are not alumni don’t come to homecoming because they know homecoming is for alumni. Everyone knows that, IU.
And real universities don’t have to bribe their alumni to come to Homecoming. If you have to bribe your alumni and their friends to support your programs, then you don’t have much of a program to start with. This is not cool, IU.
Only at IU is Homecoming an outreach event.
When you’re on that tour, make sure to tell the students about your record of sexual assaults on and near campus. And be sure to let them know that as of September 1, 2016, you are under investigation for your Title IX violations.
