The energy, excitement and variety of activity on campus at USask during the first full week of September is unmatched for students beginning the fall semester.
USask alumni and friends also experience this dynamic atmosphere as Homecoming festivities mark new beginnings and celebrate irrevocable connections to their alma mater.
“The bond our alumni have with our university is profound and enduring,” said Marcy Hildebrand, director, Alumni and External Engagement. “Returning to campus for Homecoming is the perfect opportunity for our graduates of all years to visit campus, reunite with friends, and get reacquainted with a special time and place in their life.”
A full schedule of Homecoming events and activities is available at alumni.usask.ca/homecoming.
Here are some of the ways to participate in Homecoming 2023:
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 University of Regina Rams. The Homecoming game also marks the beginning of the U-Prairie Challenge presented by SaskMilk, the season-long multi-sport competition between the Huskies and Rams/Cougars. Before the game, be sure to visit the USask alumni tent in the Saskatoon Co-op Rally Alley and enter for a chance to win a trip for two to Las Vegas. Enjoy entertainment featuring live music, activities, giveaways, and food and beverages for sale.
Reunite with your graduating class or alumni from your college
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 varied 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.
Share your #USaskThrowback
USask alumni have the chance to win a USask prize pack by showing off their unique USask memorabilia.
What USask memento have you kept since graduation? It could be your framed degree, a ticket stub from a Huskies game or Louis’ concert, your acceptance letter – anything you have kept, even if you don’t have a reason for keeping it. You can also 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 on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram by Sept. 10.
