Homecoming is a week-long event at UWF where we put on various events, competitions, and activities for our Students, Faculty, Staff, Alumni, and the residing Pensacola community; in addition to celebrating our soccer teams. Your Homecoming committee is already hard at work planning for 2015! We have left up last year's events as a reference but check back often for opportunities to get involved and to see what's in store for next year!
Apply to be one of the 8 board members of Homecoming. This is the application for Team Homecoming Chair, Marketing & PR Chair, Spirit Chair, Sponsorship Chair, Hospitality Chair, and Three Event Chairs.
