Homecoming is Happening, Oct. 21-22; Student Events Start Oct. 17

The following message is from Athletics and SAE:

UMW Campus Community,

We’re one month out from Homecoming 2022, and you’re invited to join the celebration! Student activities kick-off Monday, October 17, with events through Homecoming weekend Oct. 21-22, 2022. Mark your calendars to cheer on the Eagles in swimming, volleyball, rugby, field hockey, and soccer, with alumni games, matches and meets too. See the weekend sports schedule online.

UMW Athletics will once again host a Homecoming tailgate, presented by the Virginia Lottery. Students, alumni, friends, and more are invited to gather at the Battleground Athletic Complex as part of Homecoming festivities on Saturday, Oct. 22, with tailgating returning as an annual tradition after a two-year hiatus during the pandemic.

Tailgating spaces must be purchased in advance, and less than 20 spaces remain. To choose your preferred tailgate space, view the Homecoming page of the UMW Athletics website here. For more information, contact Assistant Athletics Director for Communications Clint Often at
