Homecoming

 

Homecoming is our largest campus and community party of the year! Alumni get excited, coming back to Warrensburg with their families and friends to reconnect with classmates and professors and to see how the University and city have changed. Students get excited, putting the spirit into one of the university’s longest-standing traditions through week-long competitions, the pep rally and parade.

UCM's 2019 Homecoming Parade and Game are on Saturday, October 12, 2019.

 Homecoming Events

Spirit Windows

The Spirit Windows Contest consists of participating organizations decorating a window in the UCM Union. Paintings should reflect the Homecoming theme and are painted the week before Homecoming, to be displayed for two weeks.

Blood Drive

The Blood Drive, sponsored by the Community Blood Center in Kansas City, MO, is an opportunity for students, faculty, staff and the community to give back to others by donating blood. This is one of the biggest drives on campus so we encourage you to schedule an appointment at savealifenow.org.

Bowling

The Bowling Tournament is a fun way to see who can score the highest. Teams are made up of six individuals. Bleachers are provided to watch and cheer on your team.

Donation Creation

Donation Creation is an opportunity for student organizations to show their creativity with charitable donations. Each organization will need to gather non-perishable food items to create a 3-D scene to represent the current year’s UCM Homecoming theme. Creations will be judged based on their creativity, relation to the theme, and originality.

Community Service

Education for service is UCM’s motto and what better way to live up to the motto but to participate in community service! Community Service is done around campus, Warrensburg and close surrounding areas.

Sign-up to participate in Community Service.

Royalty

Each organization has an opportunity to have a candidate run for homecoming. Royalty candidates go through an interview process, put together an educational display and receive student votes.

Performer

Usually, the performer at Homecoming is a comedian, magician or a cappella group. Before the performer, the Top 20 Royalty candidates are introduced, and after the performance the Top 10 Royalty candidates are announced. 

Pep Rally & Cheer Contest

Groups compete against each other for the chance to be crowned Champions of Cheer. Come out and party with the competing organizations, the Mulekickers, cheerleaders and the Marching Mules! This event captures the true spirit of a college homecoming and gets current students, along with alumni and friends, pumped about the Mules football game the next day.
