Alumni and Community Relations

Homecoming: September 23-26

Homecoming is the opportunity to renew friendships and our alliances with the University and to be strengthened by the ties that bind us all together. Whether you were under the colors of the Navy and Blue of BAC, and CSU, the Turquoise and Coral of SUSC, or the Red and White of SUU, these colors, and these ties run through our blood. Each of us has any number of special memories of our time here and those memories connected to the soul of SUU may intersect and overlap in reality but, in fact, they all merge in spirit. They do so because truly we are all united in our love of this University and we accept with gratitude that this University has indeed made an immense difference in the life of each of us.
