Our annual homecoming spans an entire week. The Tip-Off Picnic, Lighting of the “I” Spirit Rally, Friday Fiesta and Tailgate Party are just a few of the traditions culminating with a basketball game and naming of the Homecoming Court.

ISLANDER REVUE

From dance routines and cultural performances to choreographed show- stoppers, the “Islander Revue” music and dance extravaganza showcases a friendly competition of our talented student groups and organizations.
