Here’s a blast from the past – streaking. If you attended college in the 1970s, streaking likely brings a smile to your face. UTM alumni representatives are hoping to capitalize on those memories with a Homecoming theme, “Streaking Back to Martin.”

Homecoming 2004 will be celebrated this week, with Quad City’s live music, reunion tents, demonstration areas, petting farm, carnival games and fellowship as a focal point from 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Oct. 9 in the Quad.

Adding to the festivities for current UTM students, alumni and friends are the UTM alumni dinner and awards program, a golf tournament, parade, pyramid building competition and pep rally, and Greek Step Show.

The Skyhawks will face the Jacksonville State University’s Gamecocks in an OVC bout at 2 p.m.  Saturday at Hardy M. Graham Stadium.
