The University of Montana Western is reviving its homecoming celebration senior Delaney Hansen announced today.
Hansen is the president of the Associated Students of the University of Montana Western (ASUMW) who is organizing this year’s homecoming activities.
“Montana Western’s homecoming tradition dates back decades and includes a great deal of pride and history and we feel it’s time to bring it back,” Hansen said. “Homecoming is an excellent way to instill school spirit and get students, alumni and community members excited about Montana Western and all that makes it such a fantastic school.”
The homecoming theme this year is “code red,” honoring the school colors. Students, faculty and staff are asked to wear red and Bulldog athletic gear throughout the week of Oct. 10 – 15 to show support for the Bulldogs, Hansen said.
