Homecoming has been a tradition at UCF since its earliest years. It has become a staple of fall programming at the University. Many students, student organizations, university departments, even off campus businesses plan their fall calendars around this week of events. Traditionally, Homecoming is an opportunity for Alumni to revisit and reconnect with their Alma Mater. However, at UCF it is equally important to current students. It is a time for students to exhibit their pride in their school, putting aside other affiliations and raising morale and spirit. Go Knights!
