Where do I pick up my tickets for Homecoming events?

There are no tickets issued for any Homecoming events. Once you have registered and received your confirmation email, your name will automatically appear on the "pre-registered" list at the door of all events. If you are attending the Homecoming Tailgate on Saturday, you will be emailed a copy of your ticket for this event with a QR scan code that you should have ready when you arrive to expedite check-in.

Can I bring a non-alumni guest?

Everyone is welcome to celebrate Homecoming on the Hilltop, including non-alumni and friends of the university. All guests attending the tailgate party are required to show one form of identification with a birth date in order to guarantee entrance. If you register online, you can register your guests and pay for their advance tickets. The walk-in price is the same for alumni, current students, and guests ($25).

How can I find out more details about Traditions Day and other student-sponsored events?

Student-sponsored events will be organized in early September, once students have returned to campus for the fall semester. When information becomes available, you'll find the schedule of events on the Homecoming website. All authorized student events that are included on this website are individually managed by the student groups, and all questions should be directed to the individual contacts listed.
