UNCW’s Homecoming 2016 includes a diverse mix of activities, events and traditions for students, alumni, faculty, staff and the Seahawk community.
Student activities begin Jan. 23 and will continue through Jan. 31. Most alumni and community events are scheduled Jan. 29-31. Many events require registration and/or tickets, but most activities are free and open to the public. The women’s basketball team will play Towson on Jan. 29 in Trask Coliseum, and the men’s team will take on Charleston Jan. 30. Please see Homecoming 2016 for the complete schedule, tickets and registration information, parking, extended book store hours and other details.
“We look forward to bringing students, alumni, the campus and the community together to celebrate Homecoming 2016,” said Alumni Relations Director Lindsay LeRoy. “We have a full slate of activities planned, including reunions to celebrate alumni connections to UNCW, the pregame TEALgate featuring local food trucks, bounce houses and the Pep Band and, of course, cheering for our Seahawks in Trask Coliseum!”
Campus events include the Reel Teal Film Festival, Battle of the Bands, Dub Idol and the Homecoming Step Show. The College of Arts & Sciences is hosting a 5K run, Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) is hosting a Met Opera Live performance of “Iolanta/Duke Bluebeard’s Castle” and International Programs is hosting iWeek.
During Homecoming, the UNCW Alumni Association will also recognize three distinguished alumni for outstanding professional achievement and personal commitment to community engagement. According to LeRoy, this year’s distinguished alumni award recipients represent the excellence that defines the UNCW experience.
“The UNCW Alumni Association is honored to recognize Caroline Reda, Travis Corpening and A. Farrell Teague as distinguished examples of what it means to be a Seahawk,” she said.
