An annual tradition for students, the Homecoming competition is a points-based contest.

Recognized student organizations, fraternity and sorority chapters and residence halls may register to participate.

Organizations and individuals may participate in Homecoming competitions. Students can earn participation and attendance points for one or more groups that they are competing under for each event. Point accumulation from events will determine the champions.

  • Students should bring their NCard and NvolveU Event Pass to all events in which they want to collect points.
  • Organizations must send at least one representative to each of the three Homecoming Competition Meetings to review competition rules and information.
  • Competition registrations are due by 4 p.m. Friday, October 13, 2023.   ** Registration is closed. **

Contest results are posted at the ASUN Office located in Nebraska Union, Room 136. Champions from each division will be announced online. All decisions of the Homecoming steering committee are final.
