Homecoming 2015

HomecomingBanner2

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 “Respect The Royalty” mean?

This year’s Homecoming theme, “Respect the Royalty”, encourages SIU students to celebrate being a “Saluki” and all the maroon pride that goes with it. “Respect the Royalty”, allows SIU students to show off their royal side and show off their school pride. This theme motivates students to creative floats that show their SIU royal 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.
