Homecoming

Homecoming is a weeklong celebration of campus life, students, faculty, staff and alumni of the University of West Florida. Each year, we promote Argo pride with events, competitions, activities and athletics, and celebrate all that is UWF!

Homecoming Traditions

Transform the Campus
Transform the Campus

On the first day of Homecoming, we cover the campus in blue and green! Show your Argo Pride by wearing your Argonaut gear, and check out window paintings, giant banners and twinkle lights at night!

Golden Fleece Challenge
Golden Fleece

According to Greek mythology, Jason and the Argonauts had to overcome many obstacles and challenges in their epic quest to find the Golden Fleece. Now you and your friends have the opportunity to venture around campus and collect clues to find UWF's own Golden Fleece, and win a fabulous prize! Only one competitor or team will be able to retrieve the Golden Fleece: Will it be YOU?!

Cannon Fest
Cannon Fest

This daytime picnic event on the Cannon Green is a favorite of the UWF community. Hang out with your friends, professors and staff as you listen to music, enjoy lunch, and engage with multiple student organizations in their game booths.

Cardboard Boat Race
Cardboard Boat Race

Teams participating in the Homecoming Spirit Competition create boats made out of only cardboard, liquid nails and duct tape. Captains paddle their boats across the pool in hopes of being the fastest Argo in the water — or at least in hopes of not sinking! Students will compete for 1st-5th place before the faculty/staff teams compete. Then all boats left floating will race again for the final chance at ultimate cardboard boat victory!

Pep Rally & Concert
Homecoming Concert

The pumped-up pep rally celebrates Argo Pride by highlighting our campus culture and spotlighting our students, including our athletic teams, the Pep Band, the Homecoming Court and more! Then dance the night away at UWF’s biggest concert event of the year.
