We're Coming Home

Homecoming 2015 is scheduled for Saturday, October 24, as the Bearcats take on the UConn Huskies!

This year's homecoming marks two reasons to celebrate. Beyond the annual “coming home” by thousands of UC alumni looking to reconnect with their university and one another, this season the Bearcats football team and its fans are “coming home” to a newly renovated and expanded Nippert Stadium after spending last season in Paul Brown Stadium downtown. Help us celebrate our return to campus with this year's homecoming theme "The Cats Are Back in Town."
