Whether you love a parade, step show or service project, you'll find something to tickle your tailfeathers during Homecoming! The university is your Homecoming home base with an entire campus-worth of fun, including the big game at Williams-Brice Stadium.

Welcome to Homecoming Central

Homecoming is loaded with excitement whether you're a student, graduate or friend of the university. Traditional events like the Spurs and Struts dance competition and Homecoming football game keep Gamecocks of all generations coming back year after year. Many colleges across campus hold reunion or gameday events for alumni, too. Look for announcements and details early in the fall semester.
