Homecoming - October 10 through October 18, 2013

Homecoming is a broad, inclusive campus festival celebrating life at UAA, anchored by our version of "the big game," the Kendall Hockey Classic. Everyone craves connection, and this is an easy way to get it. Alumni revisit the faces and places that made their years at UAA memorable. Students, staff and faculty relish the daily Good Morning Seawolves coffees all week long. This year, we're adding afternoon desserts. And these munchies are happening in different locations around campus.
