2011 UF Homecoming Events

UF Homecoming week is always filled with fun activities and plenty of opportunities to show gator spirit.  This year the COE celebrated Homecoming with a variety of festive events and activities.

We kicked off the fun with the Dean Welcoming Reception Friday evening in the Norman Hall courtyard.  Alumni, faculty, and friends were invited to the event for a chance to meet the new dean, Dr. Glenn Good, and catch up before heading to Gator Growl that evening.  The event went very well, thanks to some great food and several outdoor heaters that kept our guests warm enough to enjoy the great evening atmosphere.

Saturday morning meant BBQ at the O’Connell center.  For several years, the College has hosted tables at the annual UF Homecoming BBQ.  Each year the event gets bigger and this year’s gathering included a game of corn hole, a raffle for a free engraved brick, and plenty of give-aways.  Our guests were able to enjoy lunch while catching up with friends and participating in activities hosted by the College before walking over to the stadium for the big game against the Vanderbilt Commodores.
