As a festive aura hovers over Winston-
Salem State University the mood is set for
Homecoming 1985. Let the celebration
Jaegin! Homecoming ’85 is destined to be
“unforgettable” in every sense.
Of course when those Fighting and Mar
ching Rams combined there is never a dull
moment during Homecoming. However,
this year’s festivities are destined to be
quite spicey and different.
During 1985 Winston-Salem State salutes
new Chancellor Cleon Thompson Jr. and
SGA president Joy Bridges, who along with
others have produced a gala event students
have prayed for in years past.
This spectacular event is at 7 p.m. and 10
p.m. in the Kenneth R. Williams auditorium
and will feature Freddie Jackson and Melba
Moore. Unlike the past this show is expected
to be a complete success.
Once again the time has elapsed for
students, faculty, alumni and visitors to join
the Ram family in their annual celebration.
As Editor-in-Chief of The News Argus, I
would like to welcome you to the campus
this festive weekend.
Throughout the day hopefully everyone
will support the football game and other
scheduled events. WSSU has set the pace,
but its up to you to make it happen.

Some suggestions that Dr. Blount had
concerning the health of people who are con
stantly on the run and don’t seem to have
the time to stop for exercising or a good
healthy meal are: “if you get yourself in
this condition, you will probably have a lot
of built up stress because you don’t have an
outlet and the best remedy is to make it a
daily priority to get in some exercise.”
WSSU students have no excuse for not go
ing to the fitness center... fitness evaluation
is free for students.
