Crowdfunding for the Tech Food Pantry will begin at 8 a.m. on Nov. 10 and end at 4:30 p.m. that day. Every organization will have a link to a Crowdfunding page and the organization with the most money raised will win.

Each student organization will volunteer two members for a cornhole tournament on Nov. 11. The tournament will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the quad.

The homecoming parade will return on Saturday, Nov. 13. Student organizations will design a float related to the homecoming theme, Tech pride and the football game. Parade floats will begin rolling down Dixie Ave. at 10:30 a.m.
