Homecoming bonfire is Friday; block party is Saturday

It’s our favorite week of the year: UNCG Homecoming.

The campus-wide celebration kicks off on Wednesday, Oct. 10, and alumni, faculty, staff and students are invited to show off their Spartan spirit and participate in Homecoming activities and events throughout the week.

This year’s celebration will feature some classic Homecoming traditions, like the Friday night Bonfire and Saturday’s Block Party at Kaplan Commons. There are also new events and reunions, such as the Phillip-Hawkins gathering – the first-ever residence hall reunion.
