Alumni, students, family and friends will have the chance to display their Tiger pride during Tiger Rally: United We Roar, a new event that combines the Lip Sync dance competition and Midnight Mania.

“Combining two of Homecoming’s most popular events,” states the University, Lip Sync and Midnight Mania will be held on Friday Oct. 17 from 8-11 p.m. in the Alex G. Spanos Center.

A variety of organizations on campus, such as sororities and fraternities, will compete in Lip Sync, “a competition combining colorful storylines and messages through the use of pre-recorded speaking roles, blends of music, theatrical dance moves and bold costumes,” informs Pacific’s website.

Last year, Delta Gamma, a sorority from the Panhellenic Council, won the Lip Sync competition. The audience helps decide who the winner is, so be sure to attend so your vote counts.

Jenna Graves ‘16, a member of the Panhellenic sorority Kappa Alpha Theta, competed with many of her sisters in Lip Sync last year. “Lip Sync was a lot of fun… I love participating in it,” expressed Graves.

“It doesn’t really matter to me who wins or anything, but it’s just really fun to see who does what each year, because everyone is so creative in their own ways and brings something totally different,” added Graves.

Graves expects Lip Sync to be amplified this year since it is in conjunction with Midnight Mania. “I’m really excited to see what happens this year now that it’s going to be in the Spanos Center,” noted Graves.

After Lip Sync, Pacific’s basketball teams will hit the court for the first pep rally of the season. The rally introduces the men’s and women’s basketball teams. Last year, there was a slam dunk contest, the women’s basketball team danced to the song “Soulja Boy” and prizes were distributed, reports Drew Jones ‘16, who attended Midnight Mania.

At the Tiger Rally this year, audience members can expect a three-point shootout, slam dunk contest and tug-of-war with many giveaways, reports ASuop Arts and Entertainment Commissioner Shannel Hawkins ‘15. K-Von, a comedian and host of MTV’s “Disaster Date,” will be hosting the rally.

The Tiger Rally will feature appearances by Pacific athletes, and you may even see one of the teams dance. Basketball season is just around the corner. Men’s basketball will have their first game on Nov. 8 at 7 p.m. against Sonoma State at the Alex G. Spanos Center. Hot dogs will be just $1 for Dollar Dog Day, which will also be in conjunction with Kids Club Night.

For the West Coast Conference, men’s basketball will take on San Francisco State at home on Dec. 27.

Women’s basketball season will have their first game on Nov. 8 against San Francisco State at the Alex G. Spanos Center. The team will enter the West Coast Conference on Dec. 27 in San Francisco, and their first WCC home game will be on New Year’s Day. The schedule is tentative and may change according to potential television matchups.
