If you’re looking to make the most out of Homecoming, here are five can’t-miss events to round out your weekend. A full list of Homecoming events is available here.

3. Veterans Day Bell Ringing Ceremony

Honor the veterans on campus and in our community at the annual bell-ringing ceremony at McCullough Plaza. On Nov. 11, 1919, at the 11th hour, 11 chimes of the church bell rang out and 11 rounds of artillery were fired to mark the beginning of the armistice that was signed by the allies of World War I. IU Southeast commemorates that moment with a ceremonial bell ringing to honor American veterans of all wars.
