About Homecoming

About Homecoming

Some of the earliest recorded history of homecoming took place when the campus was home to the Northwest School of Agriculture. The alumni association was organized in 1911, and in 1913, an alumni banquet was held at the Palace Hotel in Crookston and all alumni were invited to this special home coming.

Today, many of the traditions of homecoming are carried on by the University of Minnesota Crookston including the recognition of accomplished alumni, the annual homecoming football game, a bonfire, and a week of activities that ignite maroon and gold spirit.

Homecoming celebrates alumni. It is a time for remembering our legacy and building the sense of connectivity alumni have for one another and for this campus. That's why we say, "Go Maroon, Go Gold, Go Homecoming!"
