Bold in Black and Gold

A tradition since 1912

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.

In 2022, as the Hawkeye community grows and evolves, our traditions continue to move forward. Join us once again as Iowa City turns black and gold and comes together to unite as Hawkeyes. On Iowa; Go Hawks!
