Start your weekend by getting your IU spirit on–stop by one of our Homecoming Spirit Stations between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 14, and pick up some free IU swag! Locations include the Indiana Shop on Kirkwood, the Indiana Memorial Union, and the DeVault Alumni Center on 17th Street.
A Taste of Mini University
After the Spirit Stations, relive your time as a student—minus the exams! On Friday afternoon, choose from two sessions, each led by an IU professor: an exploration of the role of sport in American culture with Dr. Gary Sailes, or a study of the influence of Revolver and other music released in 1966 with professor Glenn Gass.
Parade & Pep Rally
Join us for the ultimate display of IU spirit, pride, and tradition. This year the route follows Woodlawn Avenue from the Indiana Memorial Union to near Memorial Stadium, including the upgraded stretch through the tailgating fields. You won't want to miss this year's pep rally and ferris wheel in the tailgating fields immediately after the parade.
Tailgating & Football Game
Saturday is the time for spirited tailgating and game-watching. Get your tickets through IU Athletics, 866-IUSPORTS.
