Homecoming is one of the longest running traditions at the University of Idaho, when we come together as a community (student, staff, faculty, alumni and community members) and celebrate being Vandals. 

The Homecoming Committee invites all students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends to celebrate U of I’s 110th Homecoming October 14-21, 2018. This year’s theme is “Idaho Homecoming: As We Were, As We Are,” a phrase selected from a 1960s Gem of the Mountains yearbook to recognize and celebrate U of I’s past, present and future.
