Homecoming 2014: October 3 through October 11

Homecoming is a broad, inclusive campus festival celebrating life at UAA, anchored by our version of "the big game," the Kendall Hockey Classic. Everyone craves connection, and this is an easy way to get it. Alumni revisit the faces and places that made their years at UAA memorable. Students, staff and faculty relish the daily Good Morning Seawolves coffees all week long.
