Y’all come to the Homecoming rally Oct. 17

UW faculty and staff are invited to the UW Alumni Association’s fifth annual Homecoming Rally at 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 17, in Red Square.

Festivities include free food, fun giveaways, live performances by the Husky Marching Band and Cheer Squad, and special appearances by UW student athletes and coaches. KJR sports radio host Dave “Softy” Mahler and Husky Hall-of-Famer Greg Lewis will co-emcee.

The rally is just one of the events that make up Homecoming — it’s about much more than just sports. There are also lectures, the annual Multicultural Alumni Partnership Bridging the Gap Breakfast, the “Pride in 5” video contest and more.

Don your favorite colors (provided they’re purple and gold) and come to Red Square for this annual UW tradition celebrating Husky pride.
