The Tradition

Homecoming is our largest alumni tradition of the year! Whether you knew it as Central Missouri State College, Central Missouri State University or University of Central Missouri, the Warrensburg campus is a place you can always call home.

Every year during Homecoming we recognize a few Distinguished Alumni at an awards dinner in the Elliott Student Union. Our 2020 honorees will be recognized at Homecoming 2021, along with this year's award winners. Learn more at ucmfoundation.org/awards.

As the date approaches, check ucmo.edu/homecoming for a full schedule of Homecoming events.

Homecoming History

homecoming cheerleaders

Central Missouri’s first Homecoming was a silver jubilee held Nov. 5, 1935, in honor of Eldo Hendricks. It featured a convocation during which 21 alumni reminisced about Hendricks’ 25 years of service, plus a halftime presentation where the president and his wife received 25 silver dollars. Hendricks, known as a “dreamer of dreams,” voiced his earnest hope that Homecoming would become an annual celebration rather than an occasional jubilee. 

The Homecoming parade is truly one of the most popular traditions. It’s always a colorful feast for the eyes, bringing the campus and local communities together to enjoy the Marching Mules, floats, equestrian units, dignitaries, area organizations, businesses, regional high school bands and UCM's very own mule mascot.
