The 2017 SGA Homecoming Committee has been working to provide students, alumni, and fans with a week’s worth of fun and exciting events. The week will begin with the 29th Annual Roll Tide Run and conclude with the crowning of the 2017 Homecoming Queen during halftime of the Alabama vs. Arkansas football game. We hope that this year will be full of excitement, spirit, and student participation from the entire campus.
This year’s homecoming theme is an embodiment of the 2017 Executive Committee’s vision for the homecoming experience. It is our sincerest wish for homecoming to engage The University of Alabama community in a cohesive celebration of the Capstone’s rich traditions. For this reason, the homecoming theme calls on us to celebrate the emphasis of our institution on familial traditions and athletic domination through honoring our home, which has brought about new growth and new ideas, and legacy of community and The Capstone Creed in everything that we do. We look forward to a week that will embody the true spirit of homecoming, as well as foster relationships with past, present, and future students.
The Executive Committee is striving to foster school spirit and pride by representing the true diversity of our student body. We have made it our mission to increase opportunities for student and alumni involvement in the hopes that every member of the University of Alabama community will embody the values of the University of Alabama. We encourage you to celebrate our sweet home of the Capstone by participating in one or more of our Homecoming Week events.
This website and the 2017 Homecoming Red Book contains the necessary information regarding each event held during Homecoming week. General information, schedules, and rules are included. Student involvement is crucial to each Homecoming event, so please encourage other students and student organizations to participate in as many events as possible.
Please be aware of the requirements, mandatory meetings, and deadlines for each event.

During halftime of the Homecoming game, the SGA Homecoming Committee will award the Spirit Cup to the student group that receives the most points during Homecoming week. The Committee will also honor teams of students who exemplify the spirit of Homecoming while participating in individual events throughout the week through our Tide division.
