1993 HOMECOMING COMMITTEE PLANS EVENTS TO 'EXPOSE' THE UNIVERSITY COLUMBUS --In keeping with this year's theme, "Exposures," the 1993 Homecoming Steering Committee of The Ohio State University has planned a week of traditions, caring and fun for students, faculty, alumni and Columbus residents to expose them to the diversity of the university. Homecoming events begin on Monday, Oct. 11, and culminate on Saturday, Oct. 16, with the homecoming football game against Michigan State, followed by an evening of music and recreation. A book drive and other fundraising events will benefit local charities. Throughout the week, the homecoming committee is co- sponsoring a book drive with Project Community and the Literacy Volunteers of America. Books will be accepted at various campus locations. On Wednesday, Oct. 13, at noon, there will be group dance lessons in the "Achy Breaky" and "Electric Slide," with proceeds from the $1 entry fee going to the Columbus AIDS Task Force, the University Hospitals Patient Emergency Care Fund, and the Special Olympics. A "Beat the Buck" raffle and "Pass the Buck" solicitation will benefit the same groups. The traditional parade and pep rally will begin at 6 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 15. Grand Marshal Jerry Lucas, former Ohio State and pro basketball star, will lead the Marching Band, floats, the homecoming court, Neutron Dance Man, and other attractions down High Street and through campus to the Oval. The pep rally will follow and will include crowning of the homecoming queen and king, as well as announcement of the winners of the Beat the Bucks raffle prizes. A full calendar of events is printed on the back of this page. # Contacts: Viviane Mao, publicity chair, 292-2324 or 421-7910 (home); Brenda Fields, adviser, 292-2324.
