School spirit was at an all time high at GPC during Homecoming week where students enjoyed a full slate of fun activities gearing up for the homecoming dance.
Jaguar Activity Group produced GPC’s annual Homecoming at the Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel in downtown Atlanta. JAG rented the venue from 9 p.m. until 1 a.m. Excitement buzzed on twitter with hashtag #gpc and keyword homecoming and reportedly 1,200 students were in attendance at the Westin hotel to partake in the dance.
To kick off the festivities JAG set off a parade, a magic show, a talent show and hosted several basketball game giveaways which all lead to the hefty turnout.
“Whoever worked to make this possible did not work in vain,” said Nadia Agyepong, GPC Decatur student. “The DJ and the automatic disco lights, everything was spectacular.”
The cost of the Homecoming dance was $19,260.
“It was worth it,”tweeted Devon Upshaw, first time homecoming attendee. “I thought it was nice, good setting … I had a good time.”
