Festivities included the annual parade and pep rally—where students, faculty and staff gathered on the Main Walkway and the University-Student Union Plaza to cheer for the Golden Eagle basketball teams and admire 17 floats decorated by student organizations and campus departments.

Other activities during the week included men’s and women’s basketball games, tailgate parties, a student appreciation night, bowling tournaments, and a “Unity & Pride” student dance.

According to Marcus Rodriguez, interim director of Associated Students, Inc., “It was an attendance record-breaking Homecoming this year! The ASI Programming Unit would like to extend its sincere thanks to the volunteers, our event-planning partners and all those on campus who made our Homecoming Week dreams a reality! Even with our rain challenges and new event venues, we were able to revisit Homecoming successes of the past!”
