Students came together in support of the football team at San Diego Mesa College’s pep rally on Oct. 13. School spirit had been all around campus for homecoming week. With events for staff and students starting Oct. 10 and ending at the football game against San Bernardino College on Oct. 15, excitement was in the air.

The pep rally was held for the first time at the new Mesa Commons quad area. At the pep rally, students had the opportunity meet the football players, play games, see different clubs, and receive free giveaways for showing school spirit. Not only was a DJ provided, but students also got to hear Mesa’s Associated Student Government President, Ava Fakhrabadi, sing the national anthem. Fakhrabadi later said about the pep rally, “It’s a great chance for different student organizations on campus to come together and give students an opportunity to be involved on campus and make a community here at Mesa, because ultimately that’s what I believe we are: a community, not a commuter school. Events like these just remind me how much fun Mesa can be when we all support one another! Go Mesa!”

During the pep rally, the winners of the office decorating contest were also announced. Participants from various departments around campus were required to decorate their offices with the theme of Olympian Pride. Many departments came out in support including Allied Health, Associated Student Government, Communications, Outreach, Peer Navigators, STAR Trio, Student Accounting, and Testing. However Outreach took first, winning a pizza party. Testing won second and a $50 Mesa Cafe gift card. Finally, Student Accounting won a basket of assorted goods for a third place prize. These offices were decked out in decor like balloon arches, photo booths, streamers, and strung up football jerseys.

Overall, Senior Student Services Assistant Courtney Lee said that in his 3 years of organizing the pep rally, this year’s was very successful and he was satisfied with the turnout.
