Homecoming

Homecoming 2018

Homecoming is a week-long 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! Our Homecoming theme this year is Argonavtica: argonavtica is the map that depicts the lands that Jason and the Argonauts traveled to. The dates for Homecoming 2018 are October 8-13.
