Homecoming 2014

Homecoming 2014

SPC has been planning for months all the wonderful events that are planned for you and your family. We hope that you will join us for this weekend of fun and excitement. Come on out and watch some saluki football (which will also be televised this year), meet old and new friends at our tailgate parties, swallow yourself in saluki pride during our parade and just see the best that Southern Illinois has to offer.

What does “Wild with Pride” mean?

This year’s Homecoming theme, “Wild with Pride”, encourages SIU students to celebrate being a “Saluki” and all the maroon pride that goes with it. “Wild with Pride”, allows SIU students to show off their wild side and show off their school colors. This theme motivates students to creative floats that show their SIU and their own organizations pride. It encourages Alumni to celebrate being a “Saluki” and the SIU community to create a strong focus on school spirit and pride.

Here is a highlight of some of the wonderful things that we have planned for you.
