Countdown to Homecoming 2016!

President Mark B. Rosenberg sent the following letter to the university community.

Dear Panther family,

It’s never too early to Unleash the Spirit! Let the countdown to Homecoming 2016 officially begin…

In a little over 100 days, we will welcome our alumni and community to campus for a week of rallies, concerts, parades and other exciting events that highlight our traditions, accomplishments and student-athletes. Join us Wednesday, July 13 from 6 – 8 p.m. on the MMC housing quad as we kick off Homecoming 2016 with Rally 100, the largest pep rally in Homecoming history. There will be music, food, games, and also a special guest appearance by DJ Hercules from 99 JAMZ.



Now it’s time to take our Panther pride to the next level! Start cheering on our FIU teams. Attend a men’s or women’s soccer game! Or check out a women’s volleyball game! And don’t forget about the football home opener game on Thursday, September 1. For a listing of upcoming events please visit

Mark your calendars: Homecoming Week 2016 will run October 15 – 22, culminating on Saturday, October 22 at 7 p.m. when our Panthers will rattle the cage for our Homecoming Game against Louisiana Tech University’s Bulldogs. For a full list of Homecoming Week events, please click here.

I urge you to take part in all of the festivities, give back and support our FIU, because there is no gold and blue, without F-I-YOU! Let them hear us roar!

Go Panthers!



Mark B. Rosenberg
