Homecoming- It’s about the game.

One of the most exciting events at any college is Homecoming. There is so much to look forward to, so much excitement, and so much fun! At the University of Maryland, Homecoming is a major event where you can show your Terp pride alongside alumni, parents, and friends. The vibe is contagious!

At Maryland, Homecoming is a week-long celebration. Be sure to have Maryland gear in all colors as each day will typically have a theme. Check out our Black Red White Show Your Spirit for Terps blog for some great outfit suggestions or the UMD bookstore in the Stamp Student Union if you need to ramp up your wardrobe. Activities and events occur each day, including shows, competitions, crab feasts, and much more.  There is something for everyone during the Homecoming week. Keep an open mind and try something new. There are so many events that you can check out and enjoy!

The highlight of Homecoming week is football weekend. This is where you’ll get the most bang for your buck as a visitor on campus. Friday starts with an awesome carnival, where you can play carnival games, win prizes, eat carnival food, and watch student performances. Who doesn’t love a funnel cake? This day ends with an amazing fireworks show on the center of campus. It’s not to be missed! Over the weekend, find the Beer Garden for adults and the Testudo Tikes Zone for the little ones.

Of course, you’d be remiss if you skipped the Homecoming football game. You can’t miss an opportunity to cheer on your team at the big game! Tickets and parking passes are for sale on the ticketing website. Plan in advance, because parking can definitely be a challenge.

All football games at Maryland are fun and the energy is high, but Homecoming takes it to another level. Be sure to book your hotels early, be prepared to be patient, and possibly Uber everywhere. You are guaranteed a good time, but be sure to have patience. Check out the University Homecoming website for more information.
