Mitakihara Homecoming 2041: And The Beat Goes On

October 21, 2041

The Mitakihara Homecoming Committee released the schedule for Mitakihara Homecoming 2041: And The Beat Goes On. Roger Blanco, a nephew of former Mitakihara Town mayor Amelie Blanco and a sophomore architecture major, is this year's Homecoming Chair and was enthused at the possibilities for a big Homecoming Week.

"At the Mitakihara University, we keep on going with our lives. The beat goes on, no matter what happens in the world," said Blanco in an interview at Magia Quad. "A lot has changed in the past three decades, but the success that our students deliver in academics and athletics hasn't. We sing our own tune to the beat of a different drum. We keep on fighting, keep on battling, keep on finding our place in the world. 

"Over our history, Mitakihara University has found its identity and retooled it to meet the world's changing needs. Because of our reputation at setting the standard for excellence as a world-class research institution of higher learning, we're glad to say that the beat does go on in M-Town."

A number of events will take place leading up to the Homecoming Game against the Fresno State Bulldogs on October 26, 2040 at 3:30 p.m. PT/6:30 p.m. ET. The game will be televised by TSN, ESPN, NHK and BBC.
