Homecoming 2017

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, 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.

This year’s Homecoming theme, “Saluki Odyssey”, encourages SIU students to celebrate being a Saluki using Heroes, Myths and Traditions. “Saluki Odyssey”, allows SIU students to show off just what it means to be part of this great institution, of Southern Illinois and to show off their school pride. This theme motivates students to creative floats that show their pride in SIU and Southern Illinois. 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.
