UTM’s Homecoming is coming to an end with a full slate of activities set to round out the week.

Rope pull championships will get under way this afternoon with Alpha Gamma Rho pulling Pi Kappa Alpha for the fraternity division championship and Alpha Omicron Pi pulling Chi Omega for the sorority championship.

Sigma Alpha Epsilon will pull Kappa Alpha Order for third place in the fraternity division and Zeta Tau Alpha will pull Alpha Delta Pi for third place among the sororities.

The fraternity championship is a re-match of last year’s championship pull, in which AGR came out the victor.

The Homecoming games begin today with the soccer team playing Morehead State at 4 p.m. at Skyhawk Field.

The volleyball team will take on Tennessee State at 7 p.m. in the Elam Center.

Following the volleyball game, the Pyramid Building Pep Rally will begin in the Elam Center.

Homecoming will wrap up on Saturday, beginning with the parade down University Street at 10 a.m. The parade will begin at the football stadium parking lot and will go down University Street to Lindell Street.

Campus organizations can build floats, and enter them into the parade. The floats will be judged, and winners will be announced later in the day.

The Skyhawk football team will play Southeast Missouri State at 2 p.m. in Graham Stadium. The game will be preceded by a reception in the new Bob Carroll football building.

The reception is open to Skyhawk Club members and former UTM football players.

The new building will be dedicated at halftime of the football game. Also at halftime, the Homecoming Queen and her court will be announced as well as the winners in each of the Homecoming week contests and competitions.

The day will conclude with the NPHC Greekshow at 8 p.m. in the Skyhawk Fieldhouse.
