HOMECOMING 3D premiere premiere 3D

Special Section • February 2012



February 11, 2012

Here’s your ticket to SCCC/ATS Homecoming 2012 Starring in this premier special section are the 2012 Seward County Community College/Area Technical School homecoming candidates, brought to you in 3D by the Crusader newspaper staff. Each candidate was nominated by an activity or club around campus. The candidates were then voted upon by the student body, resulting in 10 final candidates, as chosen by SCCC/ATS students. This special section is a first for the Crusader, as this year it will

be presented in 3D for the first time ever in Crusader history. Some special equipment is required to view this section as it was intended, so grab a pair of 3D glasses, put the red to your right eye, and then start turning the pages. We’ve got more pizazz and better writing than a Michael Bay movie, so sit down and get ready to have your campus come to life within the pages of the Crusader.
