Here are a few of our other events during Homecoming Week that we would invite faculty and staff to participate in:


Homecoming Kick-Off Sweet Corn Roast 

Monday, October 14th from 4-6:00 PM on the Pentacrest. Come join Homecoming Council, and fellow Hawkeyes, for the newest and tastiest Homecoming tradition!  Swing by the Pentacrest for free sweet corn and a little BBQ, and a whole lotta Hawkeye spirit!  This will be a kickoff to a Hawkeye Homecoming like you have never seen! There will be food, fun, fellowship, and of course Herky! See you there!  


Blood Drive 

Tuesday, October 15th from 12-5:00PM in the 2nd Floor Ballroom of the IMU. Come out to the 2nd Floor Ballroom of the IMU to support a great cause in honor of the 2019 University of Iowa Homecoming week. UI blood drives have had great success in the past, so it's up to you to continue the tradition and help us get as many donations as possible!
