It’s Homecoming week at IU Southeast

31st October 2016


NEW ALBANY, Ind. — Peanut butter and jelly. Jim and Pam. Homecoming and fall.

Some things are just meant to go together.

In that vein, IU Southeast has permanently moved Homecoming activities to November.

“Ice storms, snow, cold weather, the last basketball games of the season,” said Director of Alumni Engagement J.T. Douglas. “Homecoming in February just didn’t feel like Homecoming. So we moved it.”

Homecoming will run from Nov. 2-5, culminating with the men’s and women’s basketball games on Saturday, Nov. 5.

The Grenadier Cup is also back up for grabs! The Grenadier Cup is awarded to the student organization that accumulated the most points throughout the week in the official Homecoming events and contests.
