Return of the pack: USask Homecoming

Headlined by the Huskie football Homecoming game on Friday Sept. 9, Homecoming at USask is an opportunity to reminisce and reconnect with campus life.

Homecoming is always an energetic and hopeful time on campus. With a more fulsome return to on-campus classes and activities than we have seen in the last couple years, this fall’s Homecoming feels like an especially meaningful time for the whole University of Saskatchewan (USask) community.

“It’s a great feeling to invite our alumni back to campus this fall. Homecoming is a special time for alumni to reconnect with their USask roots and reunite with old friends,” said Marcy Hildebrand, director, Alumni and External Engagement. “It’s also a great opportunity to hear about all the new and exciting things that are happening on campus now.”

A full schedule of Homecoming events and activities is available at

Here are some of the ways to participate in Homecoming 2022:

Homecoming football game and alumni tent in Rally Alley

Homecoming is not complete without cheering on the Huskies at Griffiths Stadium with thousands of fans, students, and fellow alumni. Get your tickets and watch the Huskies battle the UBC Thunderbirds on Sept. 9. Before the game, be sure to visit the USask alumni tent in Rally Alley for yard games, giveaways and more.

Reunite with your graduating class

Several graduating classes are celebrating milestone anniversaries with reunions. Don’t miss the opportunity to reconnect with friends and classmates with whom you share a unique and enduring bond. As many other reunions take place throughout the year, Homecoming is also a great time to reconnect with fellow alumni and begin planning your own class reunion.

Take a campus tour

One of the best ways to get reacquainted with our spacious, beautiful, and unique campus is to take a guided tour. In addition to the historic campus tour, alumni can participate in the Canadian Light Source tour, USask art galleries and collections tour, campus sustainability tour, Diefenbaker Centre gallery tour, and the student life campus tour.

Play Alumni bingo and share your #USaskThrowback

USask alumni have the chance to win a prize pack by following USask Alumni Facebook, Twitter and Instagram channels and entering two special contests.

Show how connected you are to USask with the alumni-themed bingo game. Cross off squares of the activities you have completed to make a line (or two) for a chance to win a prize.

What USask memento have you kept since graduation? It could be your framed degree, a ticket stub from a Huskies game or a Louis concert, your acceptance letter – anything you have kept, even if you don’t have a reason for keeping it. You also can share throwback photos of you and your USask BFFs. Share photos of you and your friends (or future partner) that you met as a student at USask. Tag @usaskalumni and use the custom hashtag to share your throwback photos and enter the #USaskThrowback contest.
