Wildcat safety is our priority

For the health and wellness of our campus communities, new safety measures have been incorporated into Homecoming weekend. Know before you go:

  • Registration is required and all guests must check in to each event throughout the weekend.
  • All visitors, regardless of vaccination status, are required to wear a mask on campus – indoors and outdoors. 
  • Event gatherings indoors will be held in larger spaces to allow for ample social distancing.
  • No indoor events will include eating or drinking.
  • Guests in Maxwell Stadium ages 12 and older need to show proof of vaccination. 
  • Masks must be worn at all times on Streak Street, unless drinking or eating.
