Alumni can get connected to classmates by visiting the Office of Alumni Affairs for a list of activities.

Lander on the Silver Screen is the theme for Homecoming 2021. This year’s theme is based on Hollywood and cinema culture. Participants are encouraged to represent eras of film and Hollywood culture throughout the week of Homecoming. For example: banners can be decorated in the style of The Great Gatsby; Soap Boxes can be painted to resemble famous cars from popular movies.

Overall first place winners of the Homecoming competition for the Blue and Gold will win the Bearcat Cup and $500 in programming funds to be used before the last day of classes of the spring 2021 semester!
