It’s that time of the year again! At Appalachian, we aim to celebrate Homecoming traditions and instill Mountaineer pride in all members of the Appalachian State community through engagement with students, alumni, faculty, staff, and the local Boone community. Homecoming provides an opportunity to reflect and appreciate our institution's history and traditions, recognize and celebrate our achievements, reconnect with friends and alumni, and promote the Mountaineer spirit.
The 2022 Homecoming theme is "App2K'' and encourages clubs to incorporate all things Y2K into their homecoming competitions. Homecoming events are open to all members of our community and we hope that you will join us for all the fun!
Homecoming week is October 24-29! The events are as follows:
- Sept 20 - Homecoming Blood Drive
- Oct 24 - Homecoming Kick-off & NEERly Naked Mile
- Oct 25 - App2K Arcade
- Oct 26 - App2K Club Night
- Oct 27 - LipSync Competition
- Oct 28 - Parade, Kazoo Band, and Apptoberfest
- Oct 29 - Homecoming Football Game at 3:30pm, Homecoming Court on-field presentation, NPHC Step Show
