Bold & Gold Homecoming

A Celebration of Champions!

This year, BW's Yellow Jacket Cheer Team Alumni Bold & Gold Homecoming Weekend Events are part of the annual BOLD & GOLD Homecoming Festival. Students, alumni, parents, families, and members of the community are encouraged to come home to campus for reunions, performances, the parade, a festival-style dining experience, Yellow Jacket football and so much more!

Don't Miss Our Parade Viewing Hive

Cheer Alumni are invited to view the Bold & Gold Homecoming Parade together along the parade route at 11:00 a.m. We will have a designated space on E. Grand Street to enjoy the parade together on the tree lawn. Stay tuned for more details!

Festival Food & Fun on North Quad

At noon, enjoy a variety of festival dining options on North Quad, including food trucks. Visit the engagement tents to connect with BW students, faculty and staff. Lunchtime programming will feature performances by the BW Marching Band and other extraordinary student groups, BW Homecoming Court presentation, remarks from President Bob Helmer, a pre-game rally with Coach Hilvert and more!
