Homecoming week brings together students, faculty, staff, future Hawkeyes, and alumni from across the world in celebration. From the construction of the Corn Monument and the naming of Royalty, to the echoing cheers and the Iowa Fight Song at Kinnick Stadium, Homecoming week creates experiences that last a lifetime.
This year, we channel the vivacious spirit and elegance of the Roaring Twenties, merging its timeless charm with our contemporary values and vigor. Through our events, decor, and performances, we bring to life the golden glow of yesteryears, celebrating not just a decade, but also a century of tradition, resilience, and innovation. Our homage to the "Golden Age" is a testament to our storied past and our bright future.
Kicking off at 5:45 PM on Friday, October 6th.
Open to campus and our Iowa City Community, the Hawks Run Home 5K is a philanthropic 5K in collaboration with Dance Marathon and in support of the Stead Family Children's Hospital.
Registration is now closed.
