Participation

Thank you for taking a moment to read about how you and your organization can get involved in Homecoming 2016!

On this website you will find all the necessary information needed to enter all the different events going on during Homecoming Week. Be it the Banner Competition, Homecoming parade, Homecoming Royalty Court, Lip Sync, Car Chalking, and the Alma Mater competition or all six!

Homecoming is not only a chance for the UConn Community at large to celebrate our University, but is also a chance to showcase your student organization and your value to UConn.

Please read each section carefully, there are some changes this year!

The goal of Homecoming at the University of Connecticut is to maximize participation by all students and student organizations. All Greek organizations, university supported/fee funded organizations, area councils and student clubs that are registered and in good standing are urged to participate.

**Any organization interested in competing in Homecoming MUST participate in at least 2 events. **

In order to maintain excitement each organization will be competing in categories for each event— Attached to this section are the point calculations that each group can earn and how your organization earns points

Organizations will be grouped into one of the following categories:

  • Greeks
  • Cultural Centers/Fee Supported organizations
  • Non-fee Funded Organizations
  • Non-competition Category

This year, SUBOG will be adding a Non-Competition category for the events of Homecoming Week. As a team participating under this classification, you do not have to follow all of the guidelines that apply to teams that will be competing. This means that:

  • You do not need a theme, but can choose one if you so desire.
  • You do not need to participate in at least two events.

Participating in the Non-Competition category eliminates the stress that comes along with the competition aspect, and the amount of time and funds it takes to participate in more than two or all of the events.

SUBOG is encouraging any registered organization to consider participating in this year’s Homecoming week. It is a great way to bring your organization together while recruiting new members all at the same time. Show some husky pride and join us to help bring the UConn community together in a fun and inclusive way!
