Homecoming n. | hohm-kuhm-ing |
An annual fall event that involves a heavy dose of nostalgia, high heels, parades, football, family, food, floats, and sappy Instagram posts
Ladies and gentlemen, this is high school no more. Welcome to WKU and Homecoming 2.0.
If this is your first year, buckle up and let the festivities begin…
Now before we get ahead of ourselves, we cannot just celebrate to celebrate. We need a theme. Hmm…homecoming, coming home, home, I like home, there’s no place like home…that’s it!
What’s more appropriate than that? Wizard of Oz it is. Theme, check!
Grab your football jerseys and all you girls out there, put on some red lipstick and enjoy the glory that is WKU Homecoming.
Whether you’re a part of the Greek scene or prefer to be a Roman, there is fun for everyone. So find your friends and your red towel because here’s the week’s schedule of events:

College is a special time for each one of us, so enjoy every crazy moment.
Traditionally, homecoming is a time when past students and their families return to relive and remember all the precious memories made during their time here. So, let’s show ‘em that same ol’ WKU love and community they’ve known and loved for years.
Homework can wait, it’ll still be there after all the festivities are past, unfortunately, but let’s enjoy this awesome week and take advantage of all the cool options to be a part of!
