The University Program Council invites all students and organizations to participate in Homecoming Week 2018 events and festivities! This year, Homecoming Week is October 7 - October 13, 2018.
Homecoming Week activities include our “Yell like Hell” pep rally, Cajuns Got Talent, and Wear Red, Get Fed. Many other activities will occur all week in anticipation of the big game. On Homecoming Day, we hold a parade and a tailgating party for all students.
For 2018, UPC is also proud to announce the addition of men to the Homecoming Court. The Homecoming Court will now include The Queen, four Maids, a King, and four dukes. All organizations are encouraged to nominate one female and one male to interview for the Court. Please note: nominations are due by September 14th, 2018! All of the information your nominee will need on the application and interview process is included with the form. Log into OrgSync with your UL Lafayette ID to complete your nominations.
