Homecoming at UCM isn’t anything less than the biggest (campus and community) celebration of the year. Students, alumni, and their families are all invited to show their school spirit as the university honors this tradition with week-long competitions, a pep rally, and the annual parade.

Ignite Change

Out of Darkness Walk

UCM cares about suicide prevention and mental health awareness. Every year students register for our annual Out of the Darkness Walk to show their support and help us raise funds for research, education, and prevention programs to help save lives and make a difference  in our community.

Unique to UCM

Bronze Mule

Kiss the Mule

Rumor has it that if UCM graduates kiss our bronzed Mule statue near the UCM football stadium, they’ll have a future full of  success.
