The WKU Alumni Association, in partnership with the Department of Student Activities and WKU Athletics, has announced that the tradition of WKU Homecoming will be celebrated with a “Wild, Wild Western” theme throughout the week concluding on Saturday, Oct. 30.
The Hilltoppers will face Charlotte in the annual Homecoming football game at Houchens Industries-L.T. Smith Stadium on Oct. 30. Kickoff time is currently set for 3 p.m.
“Homecoming is an annual tradition that beckons all Hilltoppers back to their alma mater,” said Caitlin Greenwell, Senior Director of Alumni Engagement and Philanthropy. “At WKU, Homecoming is an important tradition that has been celebrated since the first event took place in 1927. Today, Homecoming still shares many of the original features but has broadened its reach. Now, WKU’s Homecoming is an annual tradition where alumni, students, fans and community members come together to honor WKU’s traditions and history.”
Greenwell said the 2021 Homecoming theme, “Wild, Wild Western: Back in the Saddle Again,” was selected by a special Homecoming Student Advisory Committee composed of representatives from the Residence Hall Association, Hilltopper Organization of Latin American Students, Mahurin Honors College, Interfraternity Council, Student Alumni Ambassadors, Panhellenic Council, National Panhellenic Council, Intercultural Student Engagement Center, Campus Activities Board, Student Government Association and Student Athlete Advisory Council.
