Indiana University-Purdue University Columbus (IUPUC) will establish a new campus tradition by holding its first Homecoming Week with an array of activities, several of which are open to the public. Alumni and former IUPUC students as well as high school students, parents, and local residents are invited to attend.
IUPUC’s Homecoming 2014 is February 10-15. Public activities include an evening featuring nationally recognized comedians, a pep rally and concert featuring Miss America 2004, and a Saturday evening basketball game with the crowning of a Homecoming King & Queen during half-time.
An annual tradition at many universities, colleges, and high schools across the U.S., it will be the first homecoming event in IUPUC’s 43-year history, said Dr. Sandra Miles, director of student affairs.
“We want to build school spirit and campus pride,” Miles explained. “With new student housing set to open later this year, a growing athletics program, and enthusiasm from groups like our Student Government Association, it is a good time for an annual tradition that generates excitement.”
