Get your culture on at Homecoming

September 29, 2015 — 

While Homecoming is often associated with football games and tailgate parties (who doesn’t love a tailgate party?) this annual celebration is also a terrific opportunity to tap into the music, theatre, art and culture vibe that makes our campus a vibrant, exciting place to be.

Arts and culture events include:
