Homecoming Committee offers duck pond game for SU students


The Shippensburg University Homecoming Committee put its own spin on the classic “Duck Pond” carnival game last week as part of its PR Blitz Week.

Held at the Ship Deck Amphitheatre, students could dance, hum or quiz their way to a variety of prizes.

Students who played the game selected a rubber duck from the “pond” and performed an activity indicated by the color — either green, orange or pink — on the bottom of each duck.

Dancing for 10 to 15 seconds, singing or humming a favorite song and answering Hollywood-related trivia questions were among the challenges for participants.

Blitz Week is a week-long series of promotional events that anticipate the annual homecoming celebration, which will culminate this year with a football game against rival West Chester University on Saturday, Oct. 26.

“We just get the word out about our events,” said president of homecoming committee Samantha Stambaugh.

In addition to Duck Pond, PR Blitz Week featured a variety of events across campus to get students excited for homecoming. These events included a prize wheel, a 60- second caricature artist and a plinko game.

Homecoming week activities begin Monday, Oct. 21, and continue until Saturday, Oct. 26.
