Bleed Red? Here is Your Complete List to Utah Homecoming

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Utah chapter.

If you weren’t aware, its Homecoming week! Can I get a WOOT WOOT!? Homecoming week is one of our favorite times of year because it truly shows so much Utah pride and why we’re all so grateful to be UTES!


And do you know what that means? It means your Midterm week will not be as teary-eyed! Homecoming at the University of Utah, is an exciting week which includes fun events that will hopefully deter your mind from how bad you did on your math test or how you bombed your English paper. Inspired by this year’s “#UUThrowback” theme, Homecoming Week allows fun and interactive ways for students, alumni and other U fans to cheer on the U’s rich history and traditions.
