Thursday, October 4, the Black Alumni Chapter recognized Trailblazers and Living Legends of UNM’s Black students and faculty. This was an inspiring event we were proud to host at Hodgin Hall.
Friday, October 5, we hosted the Decades Reunions, Anderson School of Management Reunion and an Alumni Artist and Author Reception at Hodgin Hall. The lights were bright, the laughter was loud, the food was great and the drinks were pouring. A great time was had by all with plans for more next year!
Saturday, October 6, was full of Homecoming activities, and was a winning weekend! At the All University Breakfast, six alumni were honored with the Zia Awards and one alumna received the Lobo Award. These alumni show just how SUPER UNM is!
The Southwest Fiesta and Silent Auction took place in the Club Level of The Pit with food, fun and great shopping for all. Over 183 companies, individuals, organizations and UNM teams donated more than 500 items to our auction. It was full of fun, great deals and excitement with one-of-a-kind items.
UNM played Texas State for the Homecoming Game, and the Lobos trounced the Bobcats 35-14. There were great celebrations at the field. Lance Richards and Marissa Livingston were crowned Homecoming King and Queen on the field during half-time. View highlights of the first half.
Finally, Sunday, October 7, was the first UNM Homecoming Soccer Tailgate. Over 15 alumni soccer players attended and were honored on the field at half-time. Soccer beat Denver 1-0 in overtime. Also, Volleyball beat Air Force 3-0. And, the Women's Soccer team beat Nevada.
In addition to these events, there were many other reunions across campus, department and college tailgates prior to the games and festivities to celebrate our SUPER U!
