Countdown to Homecoming 2017

On Thursday, July 20, President Mark B. Rosenberg sent the following message to the university community.

Get ready to roar! In a little more than 100 days, we celebrate one of the most exciting times of the year: Homecoming Week!

This is when our entire FIU family, including our alumni, will come to campus for a week of fun. There will be rallies, parades, concerts and other exciting events that highlight our traditions, accomplishments and student-athletes. You’re not going to want to miss a minute!

Mark your calendars now: Homecoming Week 2017 starts Saturday, Oct. 28, and runs through Saturday, Nov. 4 – culminating that night as FIU Football takes on the University of Texas at San Antonio for our big Homecoming game!

You don’t have to wait until then, though, to join the excitement because we’re kicking off our countdown to Homecoming 2017 next week!

Join us for Carnival: The 100 Day Countdown to Homecoming on Thursday, July 27, from 7 to 10 p.m. at MMC between the Blue and Gold garages! There will be food trucks, free giveaways, a DJ battle and much more!

Keep your Panther Pride going strong! Get ready for Homecoming by cheering on all of our FIU teams. For a listing of upcoming events, please visit

Go Panthers!
