Homecoming Traditions Race

Homecoming Traditions Race
Coordinated by the Student Alumni Association


This is a competition for Recognized Student Organizations (RSOs), fraternity and sorority chapters, and residence hall associations participating in homecoming week. The Traditions Race will consist of clues leading to 10-15 traditions around campus, and the first three teams to find every tradition will be declared winners!


  1. Each participating group can have a maximum of six members and a minimum of one member on the Traditions Race team. All team members need to stop at each tradition location. Team members must stay together and may not split up during the competition.
  2. Each team will meet representatives from the Student Alumni Association (SAA) to check in outside the Nebraska Union, 15 minutes before the event. If the team is not present when the event begins, promptly at 5 p.m., no participation points will be given, and the team will be disqualified from the event.
  3. Participants will have a maximum of one hour to find the 10-15 traditions on City Campus. Any team that has not completed the competition by 6 p.m. will still be granted participation points as long as they check in with SAA members to verify that they completed at least five traditions.
  4. SAA representatives will be present at each tradition to hand out the team's next clue.
  5. SAA representatives will be present at the last tradition to verify teams’ have completed all the traditions. The team that finishes first and has completed all traditions will be declared the winner.
  6. The use of cars or other motor vehicles are not allowed unless special permission is granted prior to the competition due to a unique circumstance. The unauthorized use of cars or other motor vehicles may result in disqualification from the competition. All traditions will be on City Campus.
