UCA announces plans for homecoming

The University of Central Arkansas will celebrate Homecoming 2016 from Monday, Oct. 17, through Saturday, Oct. 22.

The 2016 theme for the week is “Every road you take will always lead you home.” The week culminates with the football game pitting the UCA Bears against Southland Conference rival Lamar University.

“Homecoming at UCA is a special time, and we know that after working for over a year on these events, this homecoming week will be one full of memories that our students will have for a lifetime,” said Brandon Price, coordinator of Student Organizations and University Events.

Events for the week include spirit-filled activities on campus and in Conway. Many events are designed to engage alumni with their alma mater.

“The alumni association is excited to partner with student services and athletics this year for Homecoming 2016. It will be a week-long celebration of truly exciting festivities for students, alumni and friends of the university,” said Jesse Thill, executive director of alumni relations.
