That’s a wrap! Winter Homecoming 2019 was a huge hit and success. Students, faculty and staff, retirees, alumni, and community members enjoyed a week full of activities, from the rededication of the Gerald R. Ford Fieldhouse, to food trucks on the Olivarez Plaza, topped off with a tailgate for the women’s and men’s basketball games. The success of the entire week was truly because of a cross-campus collaboration. A huge thank you to Campus Activities Board, Student Alliance, Facilities, Athletics, Student Life and Conduct, Alumni Relations, Foundation, Human Resources, Campus Police, Creative Dining, and Media. Stay tuned for next year’s homecoming dates! Enjoy the pictures from Friday night’s tailgate and basketball games!
