Sentimental Journey is the theme set for Homecoming 2018 scheduled for February 9-10. Homecoming at the University of Montevallo is a festive week of things to see and do. It is that exciting time in February for alumni from near and far to “journey home” to UM (or for some, Alabama College), to see former classmates and renew old friendships. For students, Homecoming is also the culmination of a month of Purple and Gold competition. Celebrating Purple and Gold is what Homecoming at UM is really all about. It begins as early as January with the ribbon hanging on campus. Students, declaring allegiance to either Gold side or Purple side, compete in athletic events and work to prepare original musical shows for the main Homecoming event: College Night.
Information about Alumni College Night Tickets and Homecoming events are made available as they are confirmed. Please check back periodically for updates. Alumni College Night tickets are tentatively available beginning November 15 to active alumni who have made a minimum $25 donation to the University since October 1.
Friday kicks off the Homecoming festivities with the UMNAA board meeting followed by the 50-Year reunion class celebratory dinner and Distinguished Alumnus dinner. The Saturday of Homecoming offers a packed schedule full of activity for all. It includes registration in Reynolds Hall, departmental open houses, annual alumni awards luncheon that includes installation of new officers and directors of UMNAA, reunions for class years and special groups, and the Purple-Gold basketball game. The final performance and judging of the Gold and Purple productions takes place Saturday night. Also recognized during Homecoming are the University’s alumni award recipients, the College Night Honoree, and Mr. and Ms. University of Montevallo.
