Homecoming Block Party dancing

Fall is in the air. The kindling is ready for the largest bonfire in the state. And the stages and tents are being put in place for the big Saturday party on Kaplan Commons.

It must be time for UNCG Homecoming!

Homecoming celebration returns Friday, October 20, and continues through Sunday, October 22. Enjoy all of your favorite traditions – plus a few new ones.

“Our office is working with a great group of alumni volunteers to make this our best Homecoming yet,” said Beth Carlin, interim director of Alumni Engagement. “The Friday night bonfire is always a thrill, of course. And our Saturday Block Party will have some exciting surprises as well as the old favorites – we’ll have music, giveaways, great food, and lots of fun. Everyone is welcome! Alumni, students, faculty, staff, community members, family – we hope we see lots of friends and smiling faces!”
