Homecoming is a tradition as old as UMSL itself. Join us for a week of celebrating UMSL students and alumni, show your Triton pride, and watch the fun of Homecoming unfold.
Homecoming Service Project - February 20th-27th
Celebrate the spirit of giving during this year's Homecoming by participating in our Can Food Drive! Embrace the joy of coming together as a community to make a positive impact. Bring canned goods and non-perishable items to contribute to those in need, creating a ripple of kindness that echoes the true essence of homecoming. Each donation will go to support the Homecoming Royalty Candidates and all canned goods will be donated to Triton Pantry! Donations can be delivered to the Millennium Student Center - Room 366 (the Penthouse)!
Chili Feed - February 22nd - Tickets Required
Join our Homecoming festivities with a bowl of homemade chili with recipes created by our very own UMSL faculty. You will have the opportunity to sample 5 chili recipes. Taste carefully!
