SUU Homecoming

SUU Homecoming 2017

October 2-7, 2017

Alumni at the Homecoming Game

Homecoming at SUU is a celebration of the splendid panoply of collegiate life, as well as of the community that supports it. It is, of course, an opportunity for alumni to build and renew friendships and alliances with the University, including today’s students, and to be buoyed by shared ties, but it is also something greater. Whether you were a student of the BAC or CSU, of SUSC, or SUU, whether you are a student today, are a parent of a Thunderbird, a descendant of a founding family or another treasured friend of the University, you share in the rich and singular heritage of SUU. Special memories of the institution abound, and Homecoming is a wonderful opportunity to rekindle that pleasant spirit of belonging. The cohesiveness of the University forms the frame of every Homecoming and this year’s events will certainly strengthen the ties that bind us all together.
