Miners, today is Day 94 in the 100-day countdown to UTEP’s Centennial year.  Homecoming at UTEP is an important tradition.

Each fall, alumni return to campus to celebrate their days as students at Texas College of Mines, Texas Western College, or UTEP. Over the years, the annual football game has been accompanied by parades, pep rallies, bean feeds and barbecues, and the recognition of excellent alumni. Many departments and organizations host events for alumni during the week-long celebration and students participate in spirit competitions throughout the week.

Many traditions are held during the week. To learn more about them, click HERE: http://encyclopedia.utep.edu/index.php/Homecoming
