Homecoming

October 15 - October 21, 2017

Few homecoming festivities on any campus can rival Michigan Tech’s for zaniness and all-around fun! In addition to the football game, the celebration features the crowning of the homecoming king and queen, a cardboard boat race featuring dozens of boats, competitive challenges, and many other events that promote Husky Spirit.
