Student Homecoming and Family Day Events

Homecoming 2024 Logo WHERE DAWGS BECOME GODS

Homecoming and Family Day at UWSP are special events that boost school spirit and strengthen Pointer connections. Homecoming enables alumni to reconnect with their alma mater and share their experiences with each other and with current students, while Family Day encourages families to return to campus and offer their support. These traditions promote a strong sense of belonging and pride in the university’s traditions and our Pointer community.
