Welcome to the University of Central Oklahoma's Homecoming Page!

We are excited you will be joining us for the 100th Homecoming Celebration at Central! This year you can expect great things from the Homecoming Activities Board, UCO Alumni Association and the Edmond Community. This year you can enjoy the UCO Parade in the bleachers of our Grandstand located south of Hamilton Field House Lawn. If you do not want to sit in the bleachers, bring your lawn chairs and sit near the Grandstand. You'll be able to see the performances and many parade entries.

A great UCO tradition is Cheer & Dance taking place on Friday, October 13 at 10 p.m. in Hamilton Field House. To make this experience the best for you, please review the following information:

  • All students must have a valid UCO ID that successfully swipes. Those without a valid UCO ID that successfully swipes will be required to pay $5 to enter. There will be no exceptions.

  • There will be 1000 non-student (i.e. faculty, staff, and public) tickets available. These tickets are $5 and go on sale Monday, October 9 at noon in the Student Engagement Office (NUC 424). Once these tickets have been sold, we will not be selling any additional seats. Tickets can also be purchased on-site the night of the event, if tickets remain. Payment for tickets will only be accepted in the form of cash or check.

  • There will be no re-admission into Cheer & Dance. Those who leave will not be allowed back into the venue. Please plan your evening accordingly.

  • There will be no early admission for any reason. This includes, but is not limited to, bathroom usage, inability to stand for long periods of time, weather, etc. Please plan your evening accordingly.

  • Those who choose to attend the volleyball game prior to Cheer and Dance will be asked to leave the building and proceed to the end of the line to enter Cheer and Dance. Please plan your evening accordingly.
