Campus Icons Are Calling You Home

If you’ve been on social media the last couple of months, you’ve probably noticed some familiar figures from around UNCG, summoning you back for next week’s Homecoming. Our social media ambassadors have been hard at work helping them – and us – get the word out.

So have YOU registered yet?

We want to make sure you don’t miss out on all the great stuff happening on campus next weekend, so below you can find quick links to register for several of the various activities happening during Homecoming. If you haven’t let us know you’re coming yet, please do so – and if you have, it’s not too late to tell your friends by signing up to be a social media ambassador.

Alumni of Distinction Dinner (Cost: $30 per person) – celebrating our Distinguished Service Award, Excellence Award and Young Alumni Award winners, as well as the recipients of our new Woman’s College Legacy Awards, a new distinction for alumni of any generation who embody the values that hearken back to the WC era, and the recipient of our new Spartans of Promise Award, which recognizes graduating seniors at UNCG who demonstrate exceptional achievement in both academic and service endeavors. (For profiles of the award recipients, click here for Spartans of Promise and here for all others.)

Homecoming Party at Kaplan Commons – featuring music from 107.5 KZL and The Breakfast Club, southern style meal with Stamey’s Old Fashioned Barbeque, beer and wine garden sponsored by Natty Greene’s Brewing Company, the Parade of Chariots, introduction of the Homecoming Court, and tent receptions for each of our schools and colleges, athletics, Greek alumni, Woman’s College Alumni, and the all-new Zero Class Reunion (Class of 2014)
