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!
Now is your chance to be part of one of the most important events at the University of West Florida! UWF serves over 12,000 students who are proud Argonauts and members of the Pensacola community. Homecoming is a weeklong celebration of campus life, students, faculty, staff and alumni of UWF. This celebration also conveniently coincides with Family Weekend. Now is your chance to help promote Argonaut pride, create traditions, and celebrate all that is the University of West Florida!
Transform the Campus
Time to show your Argonaut Pride all around town!
The Golden Fleece Challenge
In Greek mythology, Jason was the leader of the Argonauts, who went on an epic quest to find the Golden Fleece in order to save his father’s kingdom. Just like Jason, students will participate in a hunt for the Golden Fleece to obtain a special prize!
The Cannon Fest is an afternoon carnival style event open to students, alumni, faculty, staff and the community. The event includes lunch, music, and fun as you engage with Student Organizations in their booths around the Cannon Greens, a special space with rich UWF history.
This annual event starts with a pumped up pep rally to get students excited about being an Argonaut! The pep rally highlights different student groups, including our sports teams, Pep Band, and the Homecoming Court. The night concludes with a concert featuring a renowned musical artist.
Homecoming Tailgate and Soccer Games
The tailgate invites the entire UWF and Pensacola communities to engage in some grilling and socializing before our Men’s and Women’s soccer games in partnership with UWF Family Weekend.
