What is UHD Homecoming?
Homecoming is a time for students, alumni, faculty, staff, and the community to come together to celebrate the spirit and pride of UHD. Past, present and future students will unite to celebrate the common thread that binds all Gators. The main features of Homecoming are the UHD Pep Rally, the Homecoming games and of course, Tail-Gatoring. Tail-Gatoring features a festive gathering of stu dent groups, university departments, and alumni. Delicious aroma fills the air as the various groups grill their favorite foods for their friends to enjoy. Many of the groups will participate in the decorating and cook-off contests with prizes going to the winners in the various categories. Families are invited to bring their little Gators to join in the fun and games at the Gator Kids Zone.
