Bengals Bouncing Back: Homecoming Week - September 19–24

Save the date for Homecoming Week 2022, September 19–24! This year’s Homecoming theme, “Bengals Bouncing Back,” represents strength, unity, and community.

Bengal tigers are incredibly strong and icons of beauty and power. These qualities could not be truer of all the members of our community, including our students, faculty, staff, and alumni. What better way to celebrate our resilience and commitment to the community than by coming together for a week full of exciting events and activities for all our Bengals!

The weeklong celebration of our amazing Bengal community near and far will include the following activities:

  • Chalk the Plaza!
  • Benji’s 151st Birthday Party
  • The Bengal Connect Student Organization Fair Sponsored by USG
  • Office Door-Decorating Contest
  • Sundae Fundae (Thursdae Edition)
  • Alumni Concert
  • Homecoming Pep Rally and Party in the Plaza
  • Scholar-Donor Breakfast
  • Alumni Tailgate Brunch
  • Bengal and Bagel Family Brunch
  • Football vs. Morrisville State College
  • The Bengal Toss Challenge at Halftime!
  • Men’s Soccer vs. SUNY Oneonta
