Win a Homecoming Weekend Prize Package by Entering Our Sweetheart 16 Contest! 
Tell us how you and your sweetheart are connected to Mason and you could win tickets and lodging during Homecoming Weekend 2011 , February 4–6.
We launched the Sweetheart 16 contest  a little more than a week ago and the stories have just poured in. From dates in The Ordinary (Mason’s original cafeteria) to road trips during the Final Four run, we’ve been thrilled with the response so far.
But we’re still looking for more! You need not have met at Mason but you should be able to tell us why you and your honey hold Mason so dear. The deadline is December 3, so be sure to enter  by then. And the competition is stiff, so really wow us with photos and videos. Information on how to submit those can be found on our online entry form. 
And lest we forget what this contest is really about, here’s a sampling of the amazing prizes  we’ve put together:
- A two-night stay at the Mason Inn Conference Center and Hotel  during Homecoming Weekend (check-in Friday, February 4 and check-out Sunday, February 6), along with breakfast and a fairy-tale dinner for two. A romantic welcome package will greet you, including chocolate-covered strawberries and a sparkling beverage, all compliments of the Mason Inn.
- Two premium tickets to the men’s basketball game on Saturday, February 5 at the Patriot Center on Homecoming Weekend, provided by Mason Athletics . Tip-off is 2 p.m. versus CAA rival Old Dominion University.
- Complimentary snacks and beverages before the Homecoming game at the Alumni Association  Tent and Alumni Tailgate. Also join the Alumni Association for its fifth annual Homecoming Beer Tasting on Friday night from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
