Students get excited, putting the spirit into one of the university’s longest-standing traditions through week-long competitions, the pep rally and parade.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
There are three categories:
