Homecoming

As we Follow the Green and White Road this Homecoming we celebrate 97 years of Homecoming tradition at Eastern Michigan University. We celebrate where we have been, and where we are going together as students, staff, alumni, and community. So take this green and white journey with us, as once again we have a week of celebration - from dancing to football, and painting to singing - there is something for everyone to enjoy. This grand annual celebration awaits you here on our beautiful campus. Welcome home.
