Abstract

Alumni and friends will be treated to a spirit-filled week of activities for Homecoming 2014

They say you can never really go home again, but the University of North Dakota Alumni Association & Foundation is doing its best to change that at this year's Homecoming festivities.

They'll have you singing "Sweet Home UND" next week, with an action-packed list of events and special activities for alumni and friends of UND of all ages.

It all starts Monday with a kick-off lunch in the University quad behind the Chester Fritz Library, and on Tuesday with the Frozen Feed ice cream social, when UND students will be introduced to this year's UND Homecoming Court. Other important events include the Sioux Awards Banquet on Thursday, when high-achieving individuals will receive the University's highest alumni award, and Saturday's Homecoming Parade and football game at the Alerus Center.

Here is a list of other events, times and places to remember for Homecoming 2014.
