Homecoming, that time of year when the fall colors emerge and the Alumni are welcomed back to campus to partake in Michigan Tech traditions dating back 125 years.
Pull out your Michigan Tech apparel; begin the blue prints for your cardboard boat, and make room for plenty of tasty treats because Homecoming begins this Saturday October 1st, and YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS IT!
Homecoming is composed of about a dozen fun events spanning one week (October 1st-October 8th). Student organizations, Greek organizations, and community groups (which include groups of commuter students) are eligible to form a team and compete in events. This year events include “The Black Out”, (attending our season opening hockey game dressed all in black), to Flag football, our annual parade and pep rally, and even a Historical reenactment of life in the Keweenaw—Get Excited!
