Homecoming History & Traditions

The UNM Alumni Association would like to extend a huge thank you HOWL to all our alumni, faculty, staff, volunteers, donors and participants who brought Homecoming 2019 to life in order to have the best celebration possible and gave our pack reason to cheer! We are grateful for the dedication and commitment given by each of the following members of our Lobo family in order to make Homecoming 2019 a true success — thank you!

Each year, the UNM Alumni Association works with campus faculty, staff, colleges and departments, student groups and clubs to bring to life a one-of-a-kind week of celebrating the University and its community. A few things you can look forward to every year:
