In the fall semester, students, faculty, staff, and alumni celebrate homecoming. The traditional event brings those young and old to campus for a week of exciting events. Homecoming is a collaboration between the Homecoming Student Steering Committee, Alumni Relations, Mocs Athletics and the institution.
The Student Steering Committee is a group of selected student leaders, advised by the Office of Student and Family Engagement, who provide the vision and facilitation to the student-focused events during the week. These students are responsible for planning and marketing events, coordinating royalty - our Homecoming King & Queen - and serving as ambassadors for their fellow students.
Recurring events include the kick-off pep rally, lip-sync competition, field games including the infamous "trout joust," step show, and tailgate.
More information about Homecoming can be found on the Alumni Affairs page.
Late Night Breakfast
This popular event, held during finals week provides students a free breakfast, served by university faculty, staff and administration. Hundreds of students flock to Crossroads Dining Hall to get their eggs, sausage, and biscuits. Students begin lining up at least an hour beforehand and have come to love this tradition.
