Register Online for Homecoming 2017


Do you bleed blue and gold? Come back to campus for Homecoming on Saturday, September 23 and enjoy all the festivities. Golden Bear Blvd. will be at the Pine Grove, closer to all the athletics fields where you can cheer on Golden Bear soccer, football, and other teams! Homecoming is family-friendly, with inflatables, pull-up contests, food trucks, and our famous chocolate chip cookies. Register online and view the Homecoming schedule.

The Golden Graduates Luncheon will be held on Friday, September 22, as will the Downes Athletic Hall of Fame Dinner.

Among the Homecoming athletics contests on Saturday will be varsity football, women’s and men’s soccer, volleyball, and women’s tennis. Alumni athletics events on Saturday include the women's basketball reunion, the women's lacrosse reunion, the women’s volleyball reunion, and the Women’s Athletics Alumni Council Wine and Beer Tasting.

Walking tours of our ever-changing campus will also be offered on Saturday. The Saturday festivities continue in the evening with the U&ME/MGA Dinner Dance and a night of comedy, presented by the Campus Activities Board.

The men’s soccer reunion will take place on Sunday.

Has another year passed you by without making sure you caught up with your college friends? Homecoming is the best event to reconnect with your former classmates and favorite professors.
