WARRENSBURG, MO (Oct. 12, 2015) – The University of Central Missouri invites the community to join in the celebration of “Where Your Story Began” during the 2015 Homecoming celebration Oct. 23-24  as friends and alumni join UCM students and staff in a variety of activities.

The Homecoming Pep Rally is planned for 4-5:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 23, in the Multipurpose Building. Student organizations will have an opportunity to show their UCM pride during a variety of competitions, and the finalists for Homecoming King and Queen will be announced. Later that evening UCM Alumni Relations will recognize the recipients of the Distinguished Alumni Award at the annual Distinguished Alumni Reception and Dinner at 6:30 p.m. Friday in the Elliott Student Union ballroom.

Saturday’s festivities kick off with the annual Homecoming parade at 9 a.m. The parade route, unchanged from previous years, will leave from the Multipurpose Building parking lot, proceeding south on Washington Street, east on Houx Street and north on Holden Street through campus and downtown Warrensburg. The parade route turns east onto Gay Street to College Avenue. At College Avenue, the route heads south until the parade ends at South Street. Band and parade judges will be positioned along the route.

Following the parade, UCM Alumni Relations will host an all-alumni tailgate at the Achauer House, 314 S. Holden.

The annual Homecoming football game starts at 1:30 p.m. in the Audrey J. Walton Stadium as the UCM Mules take on the Northeastern State University Riverhawks. Halftime activities include the introduction of the 2015 Distinguished Alumni, the crowning of the 2015 Homecoming royalty and performances by the Marching Mules.
